Islay, The Hebrides, Scotland
Fabulous turf-roofed guest accommodation set in an beautiful secluded spot high on the Oa peninsula on the Hebridean island of Islay, Scotland.

There is one three star review at the time of writing, but this is by a person who clearly didn't understand that they were visiting the Hebrides in winter. If you're the sort of person who is aware of where you're going...
