Overview
Cottage -
3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
Islay, The Hebrides, Scotland
Coillabus Cottage is a well equipped and comfortable traditional West Highland cottage set in the heart of a working hill farm.
The cottage sleeps up to six guests in 3 bedrooms. Guests can relax in the comfortable living room in front of the open fire. Well-stocked bookcases, a vintage vinyl collection and a rainy day drawer for children add to the interest of a stay at Coillabus. Guests can enjoy putting their culinary skills to the test in the well-equipped kitchen diner. Coillabus has plenty corners to hide away with a good book from the well-stocked bookcase. A Jacques croquet set is available for some terrifying games of Coillabus Croquet over challenging terrain!
Dine al fresco on the pebble terrace with long views over Kintyre and Ireland in summer - or enjoy the full canopy of stars in crisp clear winter skies.

Great comfortable cottage, with spectacular views extremely well equipped. A car would be recommended as it is a more remote location but that adds to the peace and tranquility. Amazing views over to Mull of Kintyre, with awesome sunrises. Very easy to get anywhere on the island and very comfortable homely accommodation to come home to. Highly recommend this property.

Our experience with this rental was the worst I have had in 25 years of self-catering properties in Scotland and England. So bad that we upped and left after one night. The proprietor was in absentia, off in Italy and failed to inform us that 10 days prior one of the two Cal-Mac ferries had crashed into the pier, and...

Management response:

The ferry situation this August has been frustrating for islanders and visitors alike. However, as we state on our website- and as Calmac state on theirs- it is advisable to book your car on the ferry. While I understand his frustration I do feel that this guest’s determination not to break his lifetime habit of never booking a ferry was...

We have been to Islay several times and each part of the island has given us a different experience. Had a fantastic experience at Coillabus. The scenery was breathtaking and we had easy access to fabulous countryside to explore. The accomodation was very comfortable and had eveything we needed. We will definitely return.
