Sites and monuments

Islay Heritage supports research, education, recreation and the conservation of Islay’s archaeology. Explore a selection of our favourite prehistoric, medieval and historic sites and monuments in the sections below.

As part of our commitment to the island’s archaeological sites and monuments, Islay Heritage plans to identify and promote ‘The Islay 100’.

This will encompass the hundred most significant archaeological sites and monuments, which tell the island’s story through the prehistoric, medieval and historic periods of our past. Many of these are currently little known and difficult to access, with limited, if any, information available about them.
