No they were called allottments and they were behind the back fence. Allottments are very common in the UK. They rent the space.
I was born in England but we didn’t have an allotment.

Allotments in the UK tend to be at the edge of a town, all grouped together. I think what you described behind houses would be just back gardens being put to good use.
Did you know that there is a specific Islay group? Islay@Scotland-Genealogy. groups.io
