My first visit to Islay was in 1998, I have returned every year since then. A lot of the pictures from those visits you will find on my Isle of Islay pages. However, several of them are also on my holiday & travelogue pages. Here's a list of them:
1998 My first visit to Islay. One page with a few pictures from bays and beaches reminds me of my first visit.
