Reviewed 15 August 2017

Emma and Ron make you feel welcome from the minute you arrive, the rooms are wonderful, the breakfast is out of this world. It is so restful and relaxing to sit in the sitting room. Waking up to a view of sheep grazing is amazing. Looking forward to our next visit! Most pedestrian friendly space of our trip so far.

Luxurious room, fabulous, very friendly host and hostess. Great to have use of the dining/drawing room to ourselves in the evenings. Breakfast has to be experienced to believe! Emma's baking with breakfast really fills you up for the day!! Emma and Ron very well informed about everything that Islay has to offer & happy to share their knowledge & experience.
Our 2nd visit this June & can't wait to visit again. Feels like home from home.
Easy walk to 3 distilleries & easy to get further afield. So much to see & do, especially the wildlife. The seal colony just after Ardbeg is amazing to watch. A very warm welcome awaits you at the excise house!

Room Tip: One room with bath, one room with walk in shower, depends on your preference

From the beautiful breakfast prepared by Emma each morning to the luxurious bath, everything was wonderful! We were happy to have a chat with Ron each morning before heading out to the various distilleries within walking distance of the B&B. We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night stay, and plan on staying the next time we visit Islay.
