Travel from mesolithic to modern times
Set in a formal church at Port Charlotte, the Museum of Islay Life is small but perfectly formed and boasts 1,600 exhibits that stretch as far back as the Mesolithic period c.8000BC! Perhaps fittingly, one of the most popular items is a genuine illicit whisky still, as well as items from the many ships that have been wrecked on the shores of Islay over the years.
