Your journey to Islay: –
Your Hebridean journey by ferry is the best way to clear away the cobwebs. The picturesque drive from Glasgow to the ferry terminal at Kennacraig takes you past Loch Lomond and if you don’t stop for oysters and sea food at Loch Fyne will take you approximately two and a half hours. You could even leave your car at Kennacraig and travel as a foot passenger as taxi transfers from the Islay ferry terminals can be arranged.
