Views – and whiskey: Scottish isle provides spectacular access to both

ISLAY ISLAND, Scotland – Hop aboard the Caledonia Macbragne ferry from Kennacraig, Scotland, for a two-hour jaunt to the Isle of Islay, 25 miles from the Irish coast. Home to nearly 3,500 people and eight working whiskey distilleries, the southernmost island of the Inner Hebrides also features hundreds of bird species and grey seals, along with beaches, trails, ancient ruins, shipwrecks, festivals, campsites, hostels, bed-and-breakfasts and hotels.
