“Great holiday on Islay”
Reviewed 9 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016
1
person found this review helpful

The house was clean and tidy when we arrived. The beds were incredibly comfortable and the bedrooms were great. It was a great place for up to six people to spend a holiday with ample space for cooking and spending the evenings indoor if the weather dictates. It was ideally placed in the middle of Islay's attractions with Caol Ila distillery and Rhuvaal lighthouse in the north, Machir bay to the west and Port Ellen and the great distilleries in the south all within a short drive. There was a little issue with regards to a cleaning fee but it was well handled and I would still recommend this house in this location for anyone visiting Islay.

Had a fantastic few days staying here recently. The house was absolutely spotless, with comfortable beds and provided everything we needed to make sure our family had a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. The house is ideally situated to explore everything this wonderful island has to offer. We will definitely be staying at this fantastic house again.

“A great place to stay while exploring Islay”
Reviewed 7 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We spent Easter in Islay and we stayed in this lovely cottage for the long weekend . My husband spent the time visiting the various Distilleries, the kids and I did most of the exploring.
We had an amazing time and couldn't think of a place we have visited with the children that was so magical, so beautiful and so welcoming. Fiona's cottage in Bowmore was the perfect base for exploring. We were first of all very happy to stay in Bowmore rather than Port Ellen because the location made touring much easier and reduced the distances to the west and north of the island. The cottage had everything we needed and more. Beds are very comfy!! The kitchen and living areas are all new and come with crockery and utensils as well as a washing machine, tumble drier and TV. Everything was spotless clean when we checked in.
I can't fault this cottage in any way and if anything we so wish we had stayed longer!
