For those who love peated Islay whiskies, there couldn't be a walk more tempting than one linking the famous distilleries of Laphraoig, Lagavulin and Ardbeg. The walk takes the form of a metalled cycle path from Port Ellen, running close by but off the road for almost all the distance. All of the distilleries offer tours - best to book ahead; Ardbeg has a fine cafe at the end. The walk is described as a one-way linear walk - there is a bus service that can be used to return from Ardbeg (or the other distilleries).


Metalled cycle path throughout - only short sections on road.
