planeskyWe have lots of beaches, some hills and moors and it is very beautiful here. The weather on Islay is usually windy and wet and we have lots of powercuts, but we have lots of lovely wildlife. You can get to Islay using a plane or the ferry; the ferry journey takes about 2 hours and the plane 20 minutes from Glasgow. About 3,000 people live on Islay.




The four  primary schools on the island are Port Ellen,  Bowmore, Port Charlotte and Keills, with Small Isles on Jura.  We live in Port Ellen, a village and a port.  People in the village work on the land, in the whisky distilleries and fish in the sea. There are currently 10 distilleries on Islay, but may be 14.  Port Ellen has playing fields, a small supermarket and other shops.  There are lots of things to see and do on Islay, like the Kildalton cross, the RSPB reserves and the Islay Museum.
