Cragabus Chambered Cairn, Islay
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Parking is an issue for Cragabus. I managed to pull off the road a distance from the site and walked back to it, but just be aware that it can be an issue.
Because Islay is an island the 'nearest accommodation' properties listed below may not be on Islay itself but on the Scottish mainland. The best source we have found for accommodation on the island is Isle of Islay.com, a dedicated local website offering a wonderful mix of local information, history, activities, and accommodation information.
