I have stayed at Carraig Fhada many times - at the b&b, in the self catering apartments, I've always had a fantastic trip.
You couldn't get a better location - it's worth the trip along the dirt track (drive slowly)... Total peace and quiet and lovely views across the bay to Port Ellen. Kilnaughton Bay, the magical Singing Sands, and several smaller beaches are all within walking distance. The lighthouse is right next to the accommodation- walk along the rocky path and across the small metal bridge and sit out at the lighthouse - you'll soon forget your troubles!
Rooms are comfortable and very clean, breakfasts are hearty and delicious, the owners are very friendly and welcoming.
It's quite a long (but lovely) walk around to Port Ellen, but this adds to the lovely feeling of being away from it all...
Stay here and you'll experience the true meaning of the saying 'Islay - and it's goodbye to care'
