Coillabus Cottage on the Oa, near Port Ellen, Islay

We're looking forward to welcoming you  to Coillabus  Cottage - a very special place to stay on the Hebridean island of Islay. We can often offer flexible start days and various lengths of stays.

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 with shops , bars and restaurants and a short drive away from Islay's famous whisky distilleries, miles of sandy beaches and historic sites and  Machrie golf course. The cottage is 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.
