A cancellation has opened up two places on About Argyll’s walking holiday to the Argyll islands of Islay, Jura & Colonsay from 20th July to 27th July.
Exploring these three very different islands together allows each to reveal its unique character – and each featured in the stunningly shot recent BBC series: Hebrides: Islands on the Edge.
The 8-day guided holiday to these islands combines exploring them on foot with finding out about their history on the hoof, so to speak – and with a few drams of the single malt whiskies Islay does so very well.
Walking the islands lets you discover their beauty and their secrets in tranquillity and reaching into them in ways that few others do.
About Argyll’s guide will take the group into some of the best and most dramatic of the scenery of the west coast of Scotland: cliffs, hills, ancient chapels and sandy beaches with a long and colourful history.
Islay’s natural resources – fertile soil, extensive peat bogs and soft peaty water – mixed with the sea breeze and traditional distilling- produce some of the finest malt whiskies. There will be a tour of one of the eight distilleries on Islay and whisky in the evening.
