Wild and Magic Islay are aware of the keen interest in Scotland’s history, due in part to the series Outlander and films such as Outlaw/King. We offer Historic Tours of Islay, sharing stories of Finlaggan Ancient Seat of the Kings of the Isles, & Dun Naomhaig Castle from whence 10,000 men left to fight for Scottish Independence with Robert the Bruce in 1314.
We are building a permanent Islay Whisky Academy venue with lecture rooms where we will host whisky courses, workshops, tastings, demonstrations and events through out the year.
We offer Whisky Education & old fashioned Hospitality to everyone.
