Islay is an island in the Inner Hebrides, famous for Scotch malt whisky. Its landforms are of geologic interest; its wildlife, of biologic. Abundant ruins attest to a previously larger, agrarian population. Tracts have been reforested. Its numerous archaeological sites attest to continuous occupation for several thousand years of prehistory. Its location is strategic for Atlantic defense and also for past cultural connections to Ireland and Scandinavia.
