Welcome to Islay Tours & Private Hire
Fancy a walk on the wild side or a drive that takes you off the beaten track? Then you're in the right place.
Dougie at Islay Tours and Private Hire is an Ileach (someone born on the island of Islay) through and through. He has an intrinsic and intimate knowledge of the island's natural, social and ancient history, and a burning desire to share it with you. Let him take you on a guided walk to visit some of the more remote landmarks on the island, or join him for a drive along the winding roads and tracks that lead to hidden gems most locals don't even know exist. A visit to Islay would not be complete without visiting at least one of the nine whisky distilleries on the island.
If you can't find anything on this site that appeals to you, just ask and Dougie will do his utmost to accommodate your needs. Use the "Get in Touch" form below to tell him what you want and he will customise a tour to suit you.
Or, if you just want a ferry or airport transfer, a visit to the shops, a lift up the road, or going out to dinner, contact Dougie on 07474 686367.
