Our information centre at Finlaggan is closed until April though the site itself is always open! Donations can be left in the honesty box at the bridge. We’re busy with winter maintenance and getting everything ready for summer season opening.
It’s time for our AGM, tomorrow night at the Finlaggan Visitor Centre to which all members have been invited. We’re looking forward to an exciting and productive year ahead in 2017 and hope to see a good turnout and usual enthusiasm from our great management committee. We’re currently updating our members’ database so if you have current contact details you would like amended please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org – and thanks to all who have already!
The Finlaggan Trust are thrilled and excited to be receiving support from Lagavulin distillery as part of their generous donations to several Islay community charities in 2017 – huge thanks to them and looking forward to the new developments!

Our Trustee and longtime advisor David Caldwell visited Islay during the week of 19 September. On Tuesday and Thursday afternoons Dr Caldwell hosted tours to groups of fortunate visitors whose enjoyment of the event equalled their learning! Many thanks to David Caldwell for sharing his experience of working on the site and his extensive historical knowledge.
