Just returned from a 2 night stay at Octofad Farm, which certainly ranks amongst the very best B&Bs we've stayed at (and we've stayed at many). Our room was spacious and beautifully appointed, and Cathy was a most attentive host. Tea and coffee making facilities are available in the comfortable lounge, and breakfast was huge and delicious. Can't recommend enough!

Have just spent a few days on Islay staying at this very comfortable guest house. Our bedroom was really lovely -bright , clean, with large en suite. Delicious breakfast served in the dining room by our charming hostess, Cathy, and a very comfortable guest lounge to relax in. We hope to return some day!

The accommodation is modern, spacious and very comfortable with a huge communal lounge and reliable free wifi (though not superfast, it's fine for internet browsing). The breakfasts were also excellent, with a good choice of high quality options from full Scottish breakfast to kippers and lovely fresh berry fruit salads. Cathy was the perfect host, and happy to help with...

Definately recommend this B & B if staying on Islay. Cathy made us very welcome with feshly made tea & coffee and the breakfast was enormous, more than we could eat. The room was nicely decorated, clean and comfortable. We only stayed one night but wish it had been longer.

We stayed at Octofad Farm with another couple and were delighted with our choice. There were refreshments on arrival and tea, coffee and biscuits available at any time. The rooms were large and comfortable and the breakfast more than you could wish for. My only regret was that we only stayed one night!

Octofad farm was a great place to stay on our recent trip to Islay. This was our first trip to Islay, but had been to Scotland many times. The room was very comfortable, breakfasts were super, and Cathy and Andrew were always able to help us out. The view from the farm is great, watching the sun rise over the...

In 2012 I returned to Scotland having been away for 30 years. I had always known my uncle was from Islay and suggested to his daughters that we visit. Much to their delight when they discovered that his original family farm was now a B and B Octafad. The original house is behind the B and B. It was a...

Our stay at Octofad Farm was perfect. The rooms were comfortable and clean, the home-cooked breakfast was delicious, and the house has a beautiful view of the bay on one side and rolling farmlands on the other. The owners are friendly and helpful. Octofad Farm is the perfect staging ground for exploring Islay!

A B & B, Octofad Farm meets all the requirement; Quiet, clean, outstanding location, nice host, local knowledge and great breakfast. The room was large and well lit. The shower was spacious and powerful and the bed very comfortable. Plus nice friendly cats and lots and lots of wild birds. Really recommend this B&B

We stayed here on a trip with our 27-year-old son in Sept. 2012, and what a great choice it was! Cathy was so welcoming and helpful, and the breakfasts were amazing. The location was perfect for us, as we drove all over Islay during our week there. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the views are gorgeous. We would...
