Islay is the most southerly of the Inner Hebrides of Scotland and is known as the Queen of the Hebrides.  The island has around 3200 inhabitants and an impressive 130 miles of beautiful coastline.  Historically, Islay has been of great importance with the Lords of the Isles having their seat at the beautiful and peaceful setting of Finlaggan in the 14th and 15th centuries.  Today you will get right to the heart of these powerful rulers as you visit the centre interpreting life here at this important time and step onto Eilean na Comhairle in Loch Finlaggan. The tour then visits Islay Woollen Mill.  The Islay Woollen Mill was first established in 1883 and is Islay's only mill. The Mill is a traditional family-run business and uses two looms dating from Victorian times creating designs which were featured in Hollywood blockbusters such as Braveheart and Forrest Gump.
