Boat Trip Around Islay Video

Islay on Video written in stencil

The only boat trip in Islay's waters I've been on so far (not counting the dozens of ferry crossings) was the short crossing from Lagavulin pier to Texa last year. I'm hoping to build on that at some point and see more from Islay from the sea. Until then I'm going to watch videos like this one:

I'm not sure what the background for this trip was, I suspect it might have been a promotional tour by Bowmore distillery. As far as I can tell they went up the Sound of Islay from Port Askaig, then down again all the way past McArthur's Head. From here they turned west and cruised along the south coast of Islay, including the Southern Skerries and past Ardbeg distillery. I think the boat is probably Islay Sea Safari's Shannick.

Sharing and discussing. Opening up the discussion. Have your say:
