Nia Roo is the perfect location for anyone exploring Islay. It’s very central close to the coop and gift shops and right across the road from Bowmore Distillery. The house itself is beautifully presented, cosy and comfortable and is the perfect home from home.

About the neighborhood
Islay is known as the 'Queen of The Hebrides' and is the most southerly of them it is relatively small (approx 25 miles long by 20 miles wide) allowing visitors to easily explore. From secluded beaches where you could walk for miles without meeting another soul to lively entertainment and a brilliant welcome from the friendly locals, Islay has it all. There are many historical sites and annual events, for the more energetic visitor there are plenty outdoor activities on offer. It is a haven for wildlife lovers aside from the many bird species, you can expect to see seals, deer and otters to name a few. Whisky lovers will be in heaven as Islay boasts 8 working Malt Whisky Distilleries, they all offer tours and the chance to sample a wee dram or two. Islay is also home to The Machrie Links Golf Course if golf is your thing.
