Our ferry to Islay was delayed by some 7 hours, meaning that it was gone 10pm when we eventually arrived at Octofad Farm. No matter! Despite the late hour, Cathy was outside welcoming us to her lovely home!
We enjoyed 4 nights hospitality here, and particularly enjoyed not just the welcome, but the relaxed style of the place, the large lounge (complete with tea/coffee making facilities, biscuits, Sky TV and a very comprehensive library of books and leaflets about Islay) and, above all, the fabulous breakfasts (which included porridge, and Loch Fyne kippers)!
We enjoyed two days of sunshine in which to explore this fascinating island; for the third day ---- when it rained --- we had saved a visit to one of the 8 distilleries. So much to see, and so little time!
If you are planning a trip to Islay, do consider a stay at Octofad ----- you won't be disappointed!
