The cottage offers comfortable welcoming accommodation in a wonderful secluded spot on the Oa peninsula - a world of its own famed for its landscape, wildlife and history, but just four miles from the village of Port Ellen and a short drive away from Islay's famous whisky distilleries, miles of sandy beaches and historic sites. Just ten minutes from the fabulous new restaurant at Machrie golf course. In short a hidden gem that could be your base for exploring all that Islay has to offer. Or park the car, stay put and enjoy the peaceful surroundings and uninterrupted views to Kintyre and Ireland from the pebble terrace. Take the chance to spot the resident choughs and golden eagles. Breathe.
The cottage sleeps up to 6 guests in three bedrooms but is perfect for smaller parties. Our guests enjoy the comfortable living room with open fire, well-stocked bookcases and the vintage record collection, well-equipped kitchen-diner, two bathrooms, and a garden room.
