Easter Holidays, Islay

Lambs ina field

Easter holidays on Islay, and the fields on the farm will be bursting with new life. Easter is a time when the lambing rounds commence. The ‘lambulance’ (also known as a quad bike) will be hurtling across the fields. The Happy Farmer at the helm, along with any available ‘lambing crew’.

Easter on Islay is an exciting time

The island is bursting with colour as the whin comes into bloom. Daffodils dance merrily in the bright sunny days. It can be crisp and cold, but the turquoise seas, and white sandy beaches, make for a magical place to escape to. With a limitless supply of fresh air, white blousy clouds sail across vibrant blue skies, just breathe in the energy of island life, as everything begins to burst with colour in the sunshine.

Book a boat trip with Islay Sea Adventures

Enjoy spinning around the coves and coastline, spotting seals and otters, and deer on the hillside, as eagles soar over head.

There’s delicious seafood to tuck into and savour

Book a table at Islay’s Oyster Shed and enjoy award winning oysters, crab, home bred lamb, and beef, before heading along the shores of Loch Gruinart to the RSPB nature reserve. Here, you can enjoy a short walk to the hide, and watch as the Barnacle Geese gather in huge flocks on the salt marshes, ready to take flight as the head across to Greenland. Enjoy guided walks, and there’s always treasure hunts and Easter egg hunts and adventures to join in as the whole island gets geared up for this busy and exciting time.

Enjoy walks along the daffodil lined single track road from the farmhouse, and head into the woods at Dunlossit. A labyrinth of tracks will lead you on exciting adventures down to the shore, or along the past picturesque lochs.
