After a wonderful breakfast, (Mhari is an excellent cook) you can enjoy the magnificent views from the spacious balcony before setting out to explore the many beautiful and interesting sites of Islay, look up ...More old friends or make new ones, cycle on the quiet single track roads, (we have two well equipped bikes available), or just relax on the balcony or patio, where you may spot our neighbour’s, such as the Hen Harriers, Choughs, Red and Roe deer, or the Brown Hare.
