Welcome to Islay House


In 1677 when Hugh Campbell,  Laird of Cawdor, started building Islay House at the head of Loch Indaal, chosen as the best spot on the island, he had little idea that this would become the natural junction of the two main roads, and later still became the centre of a wheel containing nine of Scotland’s most distinctive whisky distilleries.
