Loganair operates flights from Glasgow Airport to Islay, and takes about 30 minutes to get to the island. For more information, go to https://www.loganair.co.uk/.
After arriving on Islay, one of the best ways to get around without a car is by taxi. These can be booked in advance (advised), or upon arrival (subject to availability).

Walking or cycling
For those brave enough to walk or cycle, the road to the distillery is one of the most spectacular and peaceful on the whole island – albeit a hilly and windy one! The walk takes about 2 to 2 and a half hours, but make sure you come prepared for changeable weather, as it is not uncommon for us to experience all four seasons in one day!
