  • Alma cottage is perfectly located for exploring beautiful Islay - with amazing views of Loch Indaal and walking distance into Bowmore. We had a lovely time at the cottage and Linda and Colin were brilliant hosts.

  • We only stayed for 1 night and it wasn’t long enough! This is a well equipped, comfortable cabin with amazing views and parking. The weather was very wet and windy during our stay but we were kept warm by the log burner - very cosy! Linda and Colin were great: very friendly hosts who met us on arrival and told us where to go in town (which is only 5 mins walk away). We would definitely stay here again.

    Della2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing location, wrap up by the fire and enjoy Islay’s unpredictable weather with amazing sea views!

    Maxine2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • If you have never been to Islay or are a seasoned visitor, then i assure you that this is the place you need to stay! Amazing does not do it justice!! Situated in Bowmore and with a vista to die for, you will not be disappointed that is for sure. Both Colin & Linda have been simply brilliant in every way. Such lovely people who deserve a 10 out of 10 for their service to Air BnB! Well done guys. We will be back thats for sure.

    Steve2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation was very comfortable and the wood burning stove very welcome. The cabin held up extremely well when tested by the weather conditions during Storm Ciara. Views very exciting and nothing stays the same. Good local amenities which served us very well.

    Keith2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Linda's place was amazing, so comfortable and a wonderful location on the fabulous Isle of Islay. Linda and Colin are great hosts and we would highly recommend staying with them. We will definitely be back.

    Alan2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • The reviews are right. This is a fantastic place to stay. A warm welcome awaits, the fire was lit and it was so cosy. Great local recommendation took us to a fabulous and friendly local whisky bar. Waking up to the view across the loch is unbelievable. There is everything you need and more. Highly recommended whatever the weather or time of year.

    Simon2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • When we first stumbled upon this flat on AirBnB, it seemed almost too good to be true. There must be a catch! But everything was as perfect as it seemed online. Linda is the most wonderful host. The views are incredible, the wood fire very cozy and bed extremely comfortable. The location is perfect for a little stroll into town and exploring the rest of the island. I’m so glad we found this little gem. We will be back!

Property clean and perfectly located in Bowmore, shops and bars/restaurants all within a 5 minute walking distance. 100% would return.

    Robert2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • The location is in Pomo, extremely convenient, nearby convenience stores, restaurants, rooms are very clean, washing machine, dryer, kitchen are all available, come to the island for four days, feel relaxed and comfortable, Angrew is very enthusiastic, if come to Ayre Island, you can live here, really good. Very recommended.

    Changchun2019-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • This house is the perfect place to stay on Islay. Located in the middle of the Island every place is reachable within a few minutes. Andrew has been a great host and made us feel very welcome from the beginning. We found a house where nothing was missing, nothing was broken and that was absolutely clean. The kitchen was filled with everything that you need for a full continental breakfast and - most surprisingly for us: The house got cleaned after the first day (even the towels got changed) though we only stayed for two nights. We definitely would like to recommend this house to everybody who wants to travel to Islay. Thanks again, Andrew. We will definitely return.

    Till2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • Andrew is a gracious, accommodating and helpful host. The space offered is wonderful and accurately portrayed in the profile, it is ideally situated for a visit of Islay and offers a view of the ocean! I recommend this property to anyone looking for a comfortable and welcoming place to stay on the island and won’t hesitate to book it again when I return.

    Aron2019-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! Best Airbnb experience I've ever had. Andrew has a great 2-bedroom place that is centrally situated for exploring Islay. The place was super clean and well appointed. Andrew was a great help figuring out plans to visit all of the distilleries that we wanted to see and for helpful recommendations for dining, etc.

    Gregg2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • Cottage was perfect in every way. Could not have asked for a better location. Certainly will return.

    Liz2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic accommodation in a beautiful location, highly recommended. The photos don’t do the cottage justice; it is super stylish and cosy, with everything you could possibly need for a relaxing stay in the island. Andrew went the extra mile to make us welcome and help us get the very best out of our trip. Book it!

    Twenty Six Shore Street is a fully renovated cottage with open plan living, underfloor heating, bright bedrooms and a great feeling of style. The open kitchen, dining and sitting area allows everyone to be together while the warm and private lounge is great for relaxing. There is a family bathroom and a shower room both with WC. The 3 bedrooms have comfortable beds, wardrobe storage and 2 have direct views over the sea. Outside there is a balcony to enjoy direct views of the sea and harbour.
    26 Shore Street has the living accommodation upstairs. There is a large lounge with couches and digital satellite TV. There is an open fire and warm rug on the timber floor which has underfloor heating. The open plan styling continues into kitchen/dining room/family room. There is underfloor heating throughout and from the room you can access the balcony with unbroken views across the water. The house backs onto the sea and shore. Everything is supplied to make your trip comfortable - bubble bath and shower gel, cooking necessities such as cooking oils and spices, and there will be ample teas and coffees for your stay.
    Shore Street is close to the centre of Bowmore and the house backs onto the beach. The village has restaurants, cafes, shops and a swimming pool. The famous Bowmore Distillery is just along the road. However, the house is peaceful and very private. Although our AirBnB setting only allows bookings up to 3 months in advance, please enquire if you are outside those dates. We are happy to accept bookings into the future.
  • The house was in a great location, within walking distance to shops and restaurants. It was warm, clean and very comfortable. We ate in some evenings and the kitchen was well equipped and the open plan upstairs was a great place to relax. The view across the loch was amazing. Would definitely recommend.

    Mary2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great accommodation and such a lovely place to visit.

    Lesley2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great, spacious and very clean accomodation, equipped with a lot of useful things (e.g., olive oil, herbs, salt, etc.), directly at the water front overlooking the bay! We loved it!

    Sabine2019-05-04T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent flat in an excellent location. Everything worked to plan. Communication with Iain went very well. Highly recommendable.

    Holger2018-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic Airbnb, you couldn't hope for a better place in Bowmore. Outstanding entertainment and hangout spaces :)

    Steffi2018-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful location and a wonderful apartment. There's plenty of room, and the place was super clean. We couldn't have picked a better place to stay. The price was a little bit higher than some places, but for us, it was totally worth it. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

    Rob2018-05-18T00:00:00Z
  • Iain's house in Bowmore was amazing. The three bedrooms were comfortable and nicely furnished so it actually felt like a home rather than a rental. The underfloor heating in the two bathrooms were very much appreciated. Appliances etc were all modern and high-spec and basics were provided to make simple meals easy. The best thing was the open plan kitchen/living space with a balcony that has spectacular views over the sea. The location is perfect, walking distance to the shops and many good dining options. It’s also a great base for exploring Islay as it’s a relatively central location. Iain was always quick to respond to any queries and very accommodating of our requests. I also found interaction with his caretaker very easy through our stay. She popped by very quickly – within 5 minutes – when we needed her help with the boiler one evening. Highly recommend.

  • Excellent place to stay.

    Joe2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic cottage right next to Main Street in Bowmore. 3 minute walk to Bowmore Distillery and Lochside Restaurant, local bus stops and down the street from The Bowmore Hotel. Space was very convenient to make our own food with, good amount of dishware and space to cook, and the living quarters were spacey and very cozy during the cold windy nights! Very wonderful experience, would definitely recommend for anyone coming to Islay who will be relying on the bus system as it's very close to most distilleries (20-25 mins from Bruichladdich, 25mins from Laphroaig, Lagavulin and Ardbeg and 25 mins from Caol Ila) especially if you're coming for the whisky!

Quiet and peaceful - both the cottage and Islay. I would greatly recommend a visit - especially when the book festival is on!!!!

    Liz2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Really nice cottage in the very heart of Bowmore, just a few steps away from the distillery. A nice livingroom, a large, comfortable kitchen and four small, but sufficient bedrooms. One large and beautiful bath and a small toilet. The cottage had everything we needed for a week of distillery hopping. ;-) Stephen and Alison were very kind, helpful and responsive. Thumbs up for this cottage!

    Sönke2019-06-10T00:00:00Z
  • This place was amazing, location was perfect and the host was right there incase we needed anything. Amazing value for money.

    Lisa2018-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • Myself, family and 2 dogs had a brilliant stay at stephens house. The garden and table outside was a big plus for dining when the sun was occasionally out! Also great for the dogs. Also a big thanks to Alison who was very accommodating with check in and for anything we needed whilst staying.

    Sophie2018-08-04T00:00:00Z

  • Very convenient location, easy check in, clean and well supplied.

    Pauline2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • This is a fantastic place to explore Islay and Jura. One of the best places I've stayed on the Scottish Islands. Ideally located in Bowmore across the road from the Co-op and some nice shops and restaurants. Bowmore is central to everything on the island so is a great town to base yourself. The house is well decorated with lovely art work on the walls. The rooms are all big and the kitchen and bathrooms were great. The house was impeccably clean. I cannot recommend this place enough and if we return to Islay in the future I would not hesitate to book it.

    Our newly renovated cabin is situated in the middle of Islay, less than one mile from Bowmore - the main village. This quiet hideaway comes complete with open fields, sea views and a taste of life on the whisky isle.

An island of experiences not to be missed.
    A private cabin ideal for couples looking for a romantic, rural getaway. The studio layout compromises of a double bedroom with ensuite and private decking area.

  • Our stay at Jim's place was wonderful. The location was perfect, and the cabin super cosy. Jim and Caroline were lovely and approachable. The little cabin was perfect for my fiancee and I to relax in after each day of exploring the island and distilleries. No kitchen was not an issue for us as we would usually have a snacky dinner after a big pub lunch during the day.

    Natasha2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Jim was an excellent host. Aside from his cabin being wonderful, he provides excellent taxi and touring services. He took us to a couple of places that we never would have gotten to on our own ! Highly recommend.

    Michael2019-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • Juniper Cottage is the perfect hub to explore Islay from if you want a gorgeous escape from it all. There's everything you need to cozy up and read a book by the fire with a good home cooked meal from the fully equipped kitchen, as well as fantastic recommendations from the host on things to see from while on the island. Sarah will make sure you are well looked after, and feel right at home in the cozy cottage on the wonderfully wild and windswept isle of Islay. I can't think of a better place to visit while in Scotland!

    Larissa2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • Cosy and clean cottage that is wonderfully remote. Sarah left us wine and cake which was very welcome. Imagine snuggling up in front of the fire listening to the stags roaring and watching the hen harrier hunt across the moor -absolutely perfect. Well worth a visit

    Jenny2019-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely cosy cottage. Sarah met us when we arrived to welcome us and give us a quick tour. She had prepared a cheeseboard and a small bottle of home made wine. Everything was nice and clean. The cottage is a short drive to both Port Ellen or Bowmore.

    Ian2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • I knew Juniper Cottage would be lovely and we weren't disappointed. The cottage has a lovely remote feel to it, and inside it is perfectly cosy. Everything you could need and then some! The bed is the comfiest we've slept in yet - I almost wanted to ask what kind it was so we could get one for our flat back home :D Sarah was a great host, gave us loads of handy tips for the area as well as giving us a really lovely welcome. Watching the sun rise through the patio door as I read my book was an absolute highlight - we will definitely be back!

    Jo2019-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • This is a really well thought out and cosy accomodation. Sarah was a brilliant host and offered lots of suggestions for our stay. The accommodation is amazingly quiet and the opportunities to see wildlife from the windows is great. We loved the facilities and especially evenings in front of the wood-burner. The location is really good to see the island. Such a great stay. Thank you.

    Emma2019-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • A very cosy comfortable cottage which is very peaceful, with lovely views. Sarah is a very welcoming host. I thoroughly recommend it.

    Brenda2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Sarah’s cottage is lovely, very clean and comfortable. We cooked for ourselves and there was everything we needed. There is a really nice outside space and fabulous night skies due to no light pollution which was great. Would definitely recommend. 10 minutes drive from Bowmore for shopping and a short drive from either Port Askaig or Port Ellen. Would love to go back.

  • Paul's cottage was the perfect location for touring Islay distilleries. The apartment was very clean and plenty of space for our group. It was very enjoyable building a warm fire and watching a movie on the tv after a day of exploring the island. It was a convenient location to walk to hotels and pubs for dinner.

  • We had a great stay at Lewis Cottage over Hogmanay 2019/20. The cottage is very comfy and handily located next to a pub (with tasty food and lively locals) and is also just 50m from the Co-op. We hired a car so we could explore the island but Bowmore has lots to offer and I hear a good bus/taxi service too. We had tasty food in Peatzeria followed by The Lochside for New Year - highlights were the piper and drummer just before the bells with a great fireworks display too. The cottage was a perfect retreat for 5 adults to recover from all the fun on New Year's Day - watching films with the fire roaring whilst cooking a roast. Would highly recommend. (PS we didn't hear a peep out the Bowmore Hotel and that was over Hogmanay!)

  • We were really happy with our stay at Blair cottage. Nice location and nice inside. Gail was really quick in answering our questions.

    Björn2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed for 10 nights at Blair Cottage and could not have been happier. Gail provides everything which is needed in the cottage and its very clean. We also liked the interior, which is very tasteful done and gives a cosy feel. The woodburner in the living room is great (we had a complimentary first woodpackage provided, more can be easily bought at the supermarket). There is a double bedroom to the back and a twin to the front of the cottage. The location on High Street is great, a few minutes by foot to the supermarket, bus stops and the Distillery. It was very quiet, we never heard noise from any of the neighbours. The street in front of the cottage is also not too busy. The communication from Gail was from the moment of booking until the end 5-Star. All Information is provided without asking for and messages were answered very quickly (before and during our stay). There is a great range of maps, books and timetables provided. We really could not fault one thing. Thank you very much for a fantastic stay, we gladly would be back any time!

    Florian2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Blair Cottage was a great place to stay. It is in a great location and has everything you need. Gail was a great host and the communication was brilliant. I would thoroughly recommend both the cottage and Gail for anyone looking for a good base to to explore a Islay.

  • Blair cottage has everything you need to make your stay in Islay a Special one. The kitchen/ dining room has all you’ll ever need. The charming sitting room was just perfect and the bedrooms were so clean and bed linen perfect. Loved the bathroom and having the utility room was an extra bonus. We’ll happily return to Gail’s cottage. Thank you Gail. Xxxx

    My place is next door to the Lochindaal Hotel on the West side. There may be some noise occasionally from the Hotel next door at night, so, please be aware of this. The door is painted blue and it's No. 11. The price is £35 per person per night. Arrive any time on the day of your booking. If a changeover is in effect i.e. Bed linen being changed, cleaning etc, you are welcome to freshen up, have some tea or coffee, leave luggage. . If coming by car, book the ferry before hand!! ..
    If the ferry lands at Port Askaig, then, turn right at Bridgend approx 8 miles from Port Askaig. Follow the road around Lochindaal through Bruichladdich to Port Charlotte. If you land at Port Ellen, travel to Bowmore and onwards to Bridgend where you turn left for Port Charlotte.
  • David and Margaret are fantastic and we simply could not have asked for better hosts. They accommodated some last minute changes to our plans, gave us breakfast, provided tips on dinner and worked out a way for us to catch the rugby in the local pub. They are lovely people. Our accommodation was comfortable with a great lounge/kitchen, clean, tidy and well kitted-out. Right in the heart of Port Charlotte. Cannot recommend highly enough.

    Tristan2020-03-09T00:00:00Z

    Corrary Cottage is a 2 bedroom cottage. Centrally located with easy access to all parts of Islay. Bowmore, the largest village on the island is approx.1 ½ miles from Corrary Cottage and Port Ellen approx. 10 minutes drive in the opposite direction. The cottage sleeps up to 6 guests. It has a large lounge with a Futon style bed settee; kitchen/diner with cooker; dish washer; microwave; separate utility room with washing machine; fridgefreezer; 2 bedrooms (1 double - 1 twin) Private parking.
    The cottage is in a country location.....but is only a short 2 minute drive to Bowmore. You can walk into Bowmore but guests should be aware that there is no footpath and the road can be very busy especially in the summer months.
  • A lovely and homely wee place. Location good for being relatively central in the island if you're visiting the distilleries. We had a great stay and would return !

    Calum2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic

    Nathan2019-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, and spacious cottage. Islay was treating us with sunshine. We only really missed a decent (or just any) footpath to Bowmore. The road is really narrow and not nice to walk on. Maybe laggan estate could be inspired by the footbath out of Port Ellen. ;) A little mold in the bathroom, but really hard to keep mold out in a damp environment like Islay. Is found in many bathrooms in west scotland. But not a problem at all. Try to rent a bike if you dont want drive a car. You can flag down the bus on the main road.

    Henrik2019-10-13T00:00:00Z

This house is so cute! I highly recommend it! My only advice: do not trust Google maps, it directed us to the house on the opposite side of the road, surprised a lovely yet confused old lady 😅😬 otherwise this house is amazing!

At the end I also forgot a jumper in the flat and she let me know as soon as she saw it, giving me the opportunity to go back and get it! Super recommended!

    Caitlin2019-04-05T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect little space for your Islay break. Well located on the island to get to all corners and next door to a quaint pub and shop if you need to stock up. There is a well equipped kitchenette/lounge with a delightful balcony over the river. The bedroom is two twin beds only so not ideal for couples but perfect for friends or family. If you are driving onto Islay on a rented vehicle via ferry and are on a tight time schedule with flights in or out of mainland Scotland then do be careful. Occasionally (especially Autumn and Winter) there are big storms which will disrupt the ferry service and make it a challenge leaving the island. Rather give yourself a few days leeway each way in case this happens. The host of this flat also can assist with car hire and she was a huge help in getting us sorted after been stuck for an extra day on the island. We had an amazing time on Islay. It really is a delightful place with mouthwatering whiskies and delectable scenery!

  • Fantastic stay in this newly refurbished house. Very comfortable, beautiful location and ideal for exploring the island.

    Amanda2019-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place in Islay with a fantastic view. Comfy and very well equipped, everything was perfect.

  • We took a family trip across the UK and stayed at 3 different AirBnBs on this trip. Iain's Cross House in Brigend was by far the best AirBnB of the trip! When you walk in, you can immediately tell this is not just a vacation rental, but some place someone considers home. It was warm, inviting, and well thought out. The kitchen was easy to use as was the fireplace. We were primarily on Islay to visit the distilleries, and this was the perfect location, central to everything. Nothing was more than 20-30 minutes away. The views are also incredible at this house, and we wish we had had better weather to enjoy the outdoors more. We had a very lovely stay and would definitely stay here again on another visit to Islay!

  • This was an amazing house. Beautiful views, and a wonderfully modern renovation of an old stone house. The location is great - pretty central between a lot of places of interest. We loved just walking out along the Loch in the evenings.

    Christopher2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • A great location right on the beach. Perfectly situated in the middle of the island. Very comfy with everything you need for a great holiday.

    Simon2019-05-24T00:00:00Z
  • Cross house east is the perfect location on Islay. If you are visiting the whisky distilleries, it is in the middle of the island so easy drives from the house to the distilleries. It’s on the beach so we enjoyed great walks along the sand. The house is beautiful and has modern amenities. My favorite things were the heated floors and towel racks. It has an amazing kitchen and a big refrigerator. Beds and linens were very comfortable.

    Jill2019-04-05T00:00:00Z
  • Cross House East is an absolute pearl on Islay. Recently refurbished, it’s modern but still cozy and atmospheric. The kitchen is huge, very handy and being one with the living space makes it perfect for spending time in the evenings, possibly near the fireplace. The location is very central, too so you can reach all the corners of Islay in less than half an hour drive. Absolutely recommended for Islay explorers.

Flexible accommodation: one double bedroom, living room with double sofa bed, kitchen/dining/living area with double sofa bed. French doors to large garden.
    Close proximity to Distillery, with Lade (stream) that supplies water to distillery running through garden. Former home of cooper (barrel maker) of 52 years at Distillery, Davie Bell
    Charming, peaceful island tranquility with stunning views.
  • Perfectly located on the isle of Islay. The town of Bowmore was lovely and everyone was so pleasant. The cottage was in a perfect location with easy parking and walking distance to everything you’d need. Getting around to the other distilleries was convenient. The back garden of the cottage was an added bonus. And the neighbors were very friendly and pleasant. We loved eating at the Harbor Inn highly recommend it. Make sure you get reservations.

    Jeni2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location for exploring the island, Ladeside is a spacious, well equipped and comfortable place to stay. With a lovely garden to sit out in, it is perfect for a dog too.

    Sian2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at Katrina's cottage, which is perfectly situated for all sorts of little trips on Islay. Even on public transport, it is not a problem to get around on the island. The cottage was clean and cosy and well equipped. We felt very much at home and can absolutely recommend the place for a stay on Islay.

    Annett & Martin2019-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful and historic home, great location in beautiful Bowmore. The garden is beautiful and the neighbours very friendly and helpful.

    Sam2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • If you’re researching a “whisky pilgrimage” to Islay then you’ll find relatively limited options and hotel prices that may challenge your budget. Katrina and David’s cottage was beautiful, private, and exceptionally located in Bowmore. Everything we were looking for and then some. We are so thankful that Ladeside was available during our stay. Would not hesitate to book again!

    Brian2019-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very well appointed cottage in the heart of Bowmore. Beautiful gardens to sit in if good weather. Easy access to local shops for essential supplies. It is a perfect base in the centre of Islay for exploring. The trip to Jura was spectacular for us and very memorable. I would thoroughly recommend this cottage.

    Anne2019-06-07T00:00:00Z
  • very nice house in Bowmore, very clean, nice communication, always again

    Robert2019-06-03T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is just perfect. It’s central location in Bowmore is ideal for exploring. Locally there is of course the distillery which is a few steps away, but also great shops and restaurants down the road. We spent one day at Singing Sands beach, Laphroaig and Ardbeg. Then another day at Machir Bay, Kilchoman and Bruichladdich. Everything is easy to get to by car. The cottage itself is very clean, and well equipped. We cooked and ate in as well as trying the local places. We had an amazing time and would love to return one day. Thank you!

    This is an artist's studio turned over to guests. The decor is neat and simple. Situated in a quiet private spot and overlooking the sea, the studio provides guests with total independence and has basic facilities for cooking. The village is a heritage site and has good places to eat out plus a local shop/post office/petrol pump. It is also a stop on the local bus route. Bikes are for hire nearby.
    The accommodation is set on three levels: above at seaward end is a double bedroom with steps leading down to a mezzanine gallery running the length of the studio to a single bed alcove at far end. Ground level: shower room and the studio area beneath mezzanine gallery, which has sofa and comfy chair for relaxing, and kitchen with large patio door overlooking sea. At the kitchen end of studio, there is a shelf with artist's utilities - not meant for guests' use. A small garden is outside and there are folding lounge chairs available for sitting out. The kitchen contains basic equipment, with a fridge, and has an electric stove with hot plates and a microwave but no oven. There is no wi-fi on location but proprietor or nearby hotel can provide access to wi-fi.
    The studio is situated in the heritage village of Port Charlotte. It is one of the prettiest villages on the west coast with stone-built white-washed houses most of which date from the 1830's when the village was founded in response to the need for housing during the clearances. There is an excellent Museum of Islay Life with a library of unique books on Islay and surroundings, as well as display of artefacts used in the olden days. There is also a Field Centre for Natural History and during the summer months, they organise family excursions to nearby sites like the rock pools at low tide. Islay offers amazing variety of activity including visits to eight different distilleries, to the RSPB where you can have guided bird tours, to the golf course, to riding, to sea fishing and even visits to the famous Corryvrechan Whirlpool at the north end of Jura (book ahead of time!). The beaches on the west coast of Islay are totally unspoiled - not all of them provide safe swimming, but some do, so please take advice about this!
  • Fantastic island hospitality from Cathy, great communication and going above and beyond when weather disruptions put our trip on hold. The space has character while also being extremely practical and comfortable. Well situated, next door to the shop and seconds from the nearest pub/restaurant. We spotted an otter directly outside the kitchen windows but maybe we got lucky!

    Vivienne2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Cathy is a perfect lady who helped us a loooooot! The house is perfect, it’s cosy and clean and quiet and convenient. U and see the ocean through the window. Cathy helped to book a car for us, check the bus time for us and even drive us to the airport herself when there is no bus. I will definitely come back next year and this house is highly recommend!

    Jane2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place with amazing views, we watched beautiful sunrises every morning . It was clean and practical. It had no oven or freezer but we didn't miss them. There is no TV but we brought our own.

    Gillian2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • Cathy was such a kind and helpful host, and gave great advice on the best walks/beaches to visit. If you get a chance, buy some fish from the fish van which stops right outside the door on a Thursday morning, or you can also call at their kiosk in Bowmore-fabulous stuff! A lovely base from which to explore. Thank you again, Cathy!

    Rosie2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • The studio is in the most fantastic location - we could swim or paddle board almost from the door . Port Charlotte was lovely too. The studio is clean quirky and a really cool find , we would stay there again in a heartbeat ❤️

    Tansy2019-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • Well situated. There is a convieient store just up the hill. Port Charlotte Hotel is just a quick walk away, and serves AMAZING hamburgers. The view is gorgeous, and so close to the sea it can lull you gently to sleep. Absolutely lovely place. Bruichladden is quite close, and the mini-mart there serves some of the tastiest coffee.

    Jacob2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • A great location. Beautiful views. Comfy beds. Plenty of hot water. Cathy was great at giving us local insight of where to visit, eat and explore. We loved our time there and left feeling rested. Local hotel has live music 2 nights a week.

    Carlyn2019-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • A light and airy studio. Relatively modern open plan space which gave a much larger feel and was pleasurable to stay in. Nice French windows and comfy beds. Useful as a base rather than as a place to relax. Great location to explore the island, close to local amenities and pubs. Cathy provided useful instructions and local tips are on hand.

  • Lovely wee hoosie! Perfect for 2 people to self cater and have a nice time on the island. Clean space and great host. Thoroughly enjoyed our whole time on the Islay!

    Sophia2019-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • The wee house is super stylish and cute. Catherine and her husband were super hospitable. The wee house is also a super close walk to Port Charlotte and about a 30 min walk from Bruichladdich. Would love to visit again :) Thanks so much!

    Summer2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • Definitely recommend this B&B. Great location with kitchen. No WiFi in the room but you can use it in the main house. Host is awesome.

    Carrie2019-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location to stay while in Islay for a few nights. Walking distance to Port Charlotte and only a few mins drive to Bruichladdich Distillery. Catherine was such a thoughtful host and made sure we had everything we needed for ourselves and our 3 month old son. We will definitively be back and we know where we'll be staying when we do!

    Dean2019-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • Catherine wee hoosie is a perfect place to escape and explore Islay. It is about a 10 minute walk into Port Charlotte and three excellent restaurants. Catherine is an excellent host with very timely responses and nice hospitality touches to the flat. The only mistake made was that we did not stay nearly long enough. I highly recommend booking Cathrine’s Weee Hoosie and take the time to explore the small island of Islay. Come for the Whiskey but stay for the people.

    Norman2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect for a couple. Would stay again.

    Margeaux2019-09-28T00:00:00Z

    The Old Schoolroom is a lovingly renovated victorian schoolroom. Centrally located on the island it is an ideal place to explore Islay, Jura and, in the summer months, Colonsay. Light floods in from the huge windows and the underfloor heating and wood burning stove will keep you toasty whatever time of year you choose to visit. The cottage has a walled front garden and off road parking, we have storage for bikes and sporting equipment. Living next door we are on hand if you need anything.
    The Old Schoolroom has been renovated to offer all the comfort you would expect. The rooms are flooded with light from the massive windows, and the underfloor heating keeps you toasty warm in the colder months. There is a peat burning stove in the lounge with a bucket of hand cut Islay peat as a welcome. The kitchen is well equipped and stocked with tea, coffee, sugar, oil, garlic, herbs etc to make your stay easier.
    The Old Schoolroom is located halfway between the villages of Bridgend and Ballygrant(2 miles from each). Both villages have a hotel, Bridgend has a general store and shopping at Islay House Square. Ballygrant has a coffee shop selling delicious home baking. The main village of Bowmore is 5 miles away. We are ideally situated for Ardnahoe, Bunnahabhain, Caol Ila and Jura distilleries. You can walk to Bridgend through the woods and along the river on a private estate track.
  • A++ as advertised. Meri was a great host. The schoolhouse is easy to find and very comfortable. I would stay there again. She also made scones and told us we could have a late checkout if needed.

    Preston2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • I cannot gush about this space enough! From the sweet and comfortable decor, to the many amenities and Mari's excellent communication, we LOVED our stay! The heated floors and wood stove turned our rainy stay into cozy luxury. Would highly reccomend!

    Jessie2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Meri's place is the most lovely cottage you could imagine. We were warmly welcomed by a very friendly and cuddly cat and later even more warmly by Meri herself with selfmade scones. Communicaton worked perfectly, the place is in superb condition and furnished with so much detail. We though about missing our ferry on purpose to stay a night longer. Thanks so much for having us!

    Valerie2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Meri was a gracious hostess! She greeted us on our arrival, made us some homemade bread, and was flexible with us when our ferry was cancelled. We all felt at home here and will come back again next time we visit this beautiful island!

    Dominic2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Such a unique and pretty space. An old stone schoolhouse converted into two sizable bedrooms, kitchen, and a relaxing living room. A great launching point for your Islay tour, and an excellent place to spend the evening sampling you scotch.

    Peter2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • Meri’s place gave us the perfect stay, it was exactly what we needed after spending 3 nights exploring Islay and Jura’s bothies. Warm, comfortable, clean AND fresh scones. We couldn’t have asked for more would recommend to anyone!

    Madi2019-11-14T00:00:00Z
  • Cozy and spacious cottage with two nice bedrooms. It was great to stay in that cozy place after a cold rainy day. Little bit slower internet but the island has many other options how to spend a time. Worth it!

    Marek2019-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful place to stay! The house was clean and very comfortable and we really enjoyed the delicious scones and jam that Meri offered us. Meri was a great host and I totally recommend staying in the Old Schoolroom! Would definitely stay there again!

  • Great home within walking distance to restaurants and co-op. Washer and dryer, 2 bathrooms. Off-street parking. Excellent heating. But most importantly, sparkling clean. Would definitely stay again if I find myself back on the beautiful Isle of Islay!

    Michelle2019-10-14T00:00:00Z

  • Fiona's place was well situated and appointed. Had more than enough space for us. Fiona was extremely helpful with recommendations, specifically for local transport. Would recommend for anyone visiting the area.

    Kung2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights in order to explore the distilleries on the island and the location was absolutely perfect. It is about a block and a half away from the bus stop that brought us to most sites we were intending to visit (and it is only a couple more blocks to the Bowmore distillery itself). Plenty of restaurants and pubs near enough to walk to, but the neighborhood itself was not loud or boisterous. This space definitely could have fit more than just the two of comfortably and we would recommend this location for a group. The house was very clean, and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare a couple of meals ourselves to save some money, and there was (generously) coffee and tea for some of the more difficult post-distillery mornings.

    Lauren2019-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely home in Bowmore, perfectly located to get around the island. Nice local bars and cafes. House is spacious, light and clean. Rooms are good size and comfortable beds. Would recommend!

    Our flat is close to the local shop and hotel and we offer great views along the river. You’ll love my flat because of the location we live in a conservation village and surrounded by the woods. My flat is good for couples and solo adventurers.

I will see you at some part of your visit but I am always available if needed by contact by my mobile. Please note you are coming to a self catering flat which means you have to cater for all your own meals i do not provide any food as guests are expecting breakfast which i do not offer.

Hi Please note our flat is a one bedroom and there are two single beds.We ask that you do not move the beds as this causes damage.The beds are not able to be joined together so please note this when booking. we do not supply any bedding for children or babies this is brought by yourselves. accommodation is for two people only any no additional guests will be allowed to stay in the property.
    Spar shop across the road from accommodation.Local hotel is also across from us where they serve lunch and dinner and have a pub too. Plenty of restaurants and pubs 3 miles into Bowmore. Supermarket located in Bowmore. Glass recycling is opposite where we live do not leave it for us to clear up.
  • Sornbank is a great location from where to explore the island whether by bus or car. We enjoyed taking the local buses or taxis to where we were going and it worked out fine. There are some nice walks that you can do right from Sornbank as well. We were very comfortable there.

  • Bridgend is a very good location to discover Islay. Very large apartment and nice contact to Katherine and her husband.

  • Nice, roomy flat with a bus connection right outside. Katherine met us while trying to find our way in and was very friendly! Not the most optimal place to stay while visiting Distilleries but probably the third best village as a base. Cooking facilities, nearby store made it even lovlier. A sure recommendation!

  • I can't reccomend renting this apartment highly enough! Bridgend is centrally located and you can get almost anywhere by the bus system. There are a few places that you need to hire a cab to get to or go on a tour.... I would highly reccommend a tour with Dougie of Islay Tours, our experience was so informative! His passion for the history of the island is infectious. Do please book ahead any whisky tours you want to take or hire a tour company for the purpose. I was only able to do one tour, but it was a good one, the Bog Off walk at Ardbeg! We were pretty much self guided on this trip but have found the people to be friendly and helpful. The pace is slow on Islay, and it has a rugged beauty that my wife and I have fallen in love with. The apartment itself is well appointed the shop across the way has just about everything you could need and the neat modern surroundings make for a comfortable stay. Thank you Katherine for a great stay on Islay!

  • During our stay here, we saw heron and grey wagtail on the river, fish jumping under the bridge in the evenings, and on our last evening a golden eagle soared over the woods behind. The flat is just over the bridge from the Spar shop and the Bridgend Hotel, and there is a lovely woodland walk nearby. We found the flat comfortable and Katherine was friendly and helpful. We would love to stay again.

  • Great location right in the middle of Islay. Everything was exactly as expected. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely book again.

    Peter2019-05-04T00:00:00Z
  • A great equipped and nicely located small house with direct sea view. Especially for small children, the equipment offers a lot, such as an extra game room. The living room is large and very comfortable and the kitchen equipment leaves nothing to be desired. Also fast WiFi was available.

  • Kilchoman Apartment is in a great location with views over the loch. It is a very comfortable and stylish place, very well equipped with just about everything you could need. Communications with Margaret and Alison were very prompt and always helpful. We had a wonderful time on Islay, helped by beautiful weather. Kilchoman Apartment is very highly recommended.

    Steve2019-05-15T00:00:00Z
  • This is outstanding accommodation, comfortable, clean, well-equipt and homely. The setting of Port Charlotte could not be better as it's a beautiful village. In the evenings we'd stroll down to the jetty or go for a drink in a bar. We spent a lot of our days out and about cycling and walking, it's easy to cycle from the door and we'd always have this cosy apartment to come back to. Brilliant

    Elaine2018-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great place to stay with everything you need for cooking in or enjoying your stay in Port Charlotte. Within walking distance to restaurants, close to the ocean ( you can see it from the front windows) and little convenience store with many essential items within walking distance. Great music at Hotel Charlotte on Sunday and Wednesday evenings. Just the perfect place to spend your holiday.
