I was there a few weeks ago. Unfortunately I got soaked and then chilled on Arran and by the time I got to Islay I was feeling really bad and was off the bike for a few days.

If your after information on cycling, you could have a look at http://www.thewashingmachinepost.net - it has some stuff on cycling on Islay.

Eight whisky distilleries to start with and some fantastic beaches and wildlife.

Do remember that the concept of summer in the northern latitudes is different to that further south. Summer is a time of long day light hours, but not necessarily of warm weather. It can be warm and sunny or it can be a howling gale, or both in the same day.

Do tell us how you got on when you come back.
