Just to show you another aspect of Islay I took a few pictures of the animals farmers keep on Islay (and neighbouring Jura): Cattle, pigs and sheep. If you visit one of the restaurants on Islay make sure you taste the delicious beef or have some Islay lamb.

Picture of two sheep, one lying on its back
Did this sheep have too much of the good Islay Single Malt whiskies?

Middle white pigs are kept at Lossit Farm on the Dunlossit Estate, having been brought to Islay a few years ago.

The pigs are partly kept for land management (they help improving the ground, I believe), but I'm told their meat also tastes very good.
