More and more businesses, organisations and accommodations on Islay get an online presence. It was early April that I wrote about the new website for the An Taigh Osda Hotel in Bruichladdich, followed by five new Islay Websites a week later and a new website for Loch Gorm House another week later.
Today I can announce that three more Islay websites made it online in the last weeks. The first one belongs to Sharon and Jim who live on Ballinaby Farm. Recently they started with renting out boats on Loch Gorm, for fishing or pleasure, whatever you desire. Loch Gorm is a great loch for Brown Trout fishing, and the new boat hire is a welcome addition to combine the pleasure of enjoying Islay's magnificent surrounding while trying to catch that "big one". Their boats are built by stormcats, are electrically powered and therefore environmentally friendly. More information is available on the Islay Boat Hire webpage.

Their new website is called www.islaytaxis.com and contains information about their taxi fleet and tours on the island. Rhinns Taxi Hire is a new company set up by Stuart Doyle and offers a top class taxi service. Rhinns Taxi hire is available for full or half day tours, VIP pick ups from the airport, 24-hour taxi service and anything else in between for max four or eight persons.
About a week ago I published an article from the Ileach about Meat Islay. Yesterday I found out that there is more information available online on the website www.meatislay.co.uk. On their website you find general information as well as info for consumers and producers. You will also find a Q&A section. I think this is a great intitiative very much worth supporting and if you like to show that you support Meat Islay, have a look in the merchandise section. Here you can buy labels, polo's, fleece sweaters and bio-degradable carrier bags. If you still have questions you can contact the office of Dunlossit Estate at email@example.com.
