The Trout Fly Guest House is an outstanding B&B. The location is good, in the heart of Port Ellen. About 2 minutes of walk to shops and restaurants. Free parking on the street. Clean and fresh rooms and a large lounge available for guests available both day and night. The breakfast is the best I have had at a B&B....

Exceptionally friendly hosts. Warm information welcome with an opportunity to check in early and informative, which made planning our day ( including walking/ biking to the distilleries) an option.Great location in port Ellen - walking distance from the ferry and only 4 miles from the airport. Open to customer feedback Susan
