Cycling

Islay is an excellent place for cycling, whether you bring your own or hire one when you get here. It’s definitely one way to slow down and enjoy the calming effect island life can have on you.

Most of the roads are quiet and flat – we do get the odd windy day but in summertime it’s a delight to get out and enjoy the fresh air.

Jura is a little bit more hilly and challenging, especially the further north you go but you certainly won’t meet much traffic up there!
