I stayed here for about a week in July 2019 while on a distillery tour. From my first moment in Scotland, I noticed how friendly people were, but Fiona and Allan were magnificent. The room was immaculate and comfortable, and everywhere you look in the guest house there is some delightful decoration or item to make you smile. Upon meeting Allan, my friend and i mentioned we intended to walk into Bowmore for supper - and were immediately provided a ride, short tour of the town, and recommendations on what places have the best food. Follow Allan's food recommendations. You'll be very pleased. The place itself is about a fifteen minute walk from the town of Bowmore, which is great for an after-supper walk to settle a lovely meal (and sober up a bit, in my case). Speaking of food, Fiona is a magnificent cook. Definitely see about getting a full Scottish breakfast, but even the simpler toast and eggs we had were probably the best possible toast and eggs that I've ever had. For the entire duration of the trip we were very well taken care of. I definitely intend to try to return when next i visit Islay.

Location was perfect with harbour views. Couldn't expect more from our hosts as their attention to detail was simply magnificent. Breakfasts were the best we had on our 6 week holiday. Parking outside the B & B was not a problem

I wish I could give it 10 stars! My husband and I came here on our honeymoon, and Fiona could not have been more hospitable. In the lead-up to the trip, she offered to make restaurant and distillery tour reservations for us (pls do so—things book up on Islay!). When we arrived, she upgraded us to another available room—at no charge—and in our charming room we found champagne and a handwritten card congratulating us on our honeymoon! Fiona is warm, personable, and a consummate professional—we later learned she was in the hospitality business—and it is evidenced at every turn. She was full of helpful suggestions, and even gave us a lift into Bowmore proper (15min Wall) so we could make it to Bowmore’s distillery in time. Fiona’s full Scottish breakfast was five-star, with a picturesque view of the sheep in the farm behind. What a warm welcome. We will definitely return and recommend heartily to anyone visiting Islay!

If you are fortunate enough to have lovely relatives on Islay with a beautiful waterside home overlooking Loch Indall you won't need to stay at Allendale. You might still want to through just to have the pleasure of meeting Fiona and Allen and hearing their hilarious stories and getting the best info on the island. If you don't have that relative you can, like us, experience that feeling of having family in a stunning spot. It is really hard to imagine what else Fiona and Allen could do to make your stay more special. The house is really comfortable and the room overlooks not just the Loch but has a distant view of the wonderful distillery at Bruichladdich. You are overlooked through. By the grazing sheep in the field that surrounds their garden and nothing else. The sheep provide a lovely pastoral feel. Fiona and Allen have through of everything that you might need in your room and this attention to detail is part of their hospitality which is so generous and delightful. The cooked Scottish breakfast that Fiona cooks is perfection. Having heard their stories about the island we felt as though we belonged, and it brought the island to life. Thanks to both of them for making us feel like we were part of the family!

We stayed with Fiona & Allan mid-May 2019. The B&B was clean, comfortable, warm, and efficient. Fiona & Allan were friendly, charming, and very informative. Breakfasts were very good. The location made for a nice walk into town (Bowmore) for evening dinners. We'd stay here again.
