Stayed 2 nights, Lynn was very welcoming, bringing us fresh milk for a 'cuppa' when we arrived. Our room was very comfy with lovely clean en-suite. The breakfast menu was the best I have seen, Fresh fruit salad, cereal, toast, yoghurt was laid out. Then the choice of about 5 cooked breakfasts from the menu or Lynn would cook anything... More

Lynn, is an excellent and friendly host. The rooms were very clean. A wee complaint in our rooms the two single beds were pretty uncomfortable, but everything else was fantastic. The breakfast is very hearty and incredibly tasty.

We stayed for 3 days and were impressed. The Oystercatcher had lovely rooms, first class Scottish breakfast, and Lyn the owner could not have been more friendly and helpful, booking us in to the distilleries as required. Islay is a lovely place to visit, friendly people and the weather for our short break was superb.If we return the Oystercatcher will... More

This is a fabulous B&B. Lynne, the owner, could not be more helpful and the breakfasts she offers are of a greater variety than most hotels we have been to and are cooked to perfection. We had a lovely stay here and would most certainly go back if back in Islay

The Oystercatcher was one of the hits of our stay at Islay. Lynne our host could not have been more helpful and accomodating to our group. The Oystercatcher looks out over the bay of Port Ellen, the rooms are spotless, cottagy and quaint . We found Port Ellen an ideal place to stay and the local pub just along the... More

The Oystercatcher is The Place in which you want to stay on the Islay visit! It is small but so cosy and nice place. And of course we felt so warmly welcomed there. Our room was very nice and clean, bathroom was very cute! I just fell in love with the superthick but still light blanket and soft sheets. We... More

From the moment we arrived Lynn made us welcome. The house was beautiful and our room very comfortable. Breakfasts were amazing - particularly the smoked salmon but everything was done to the same high standard. Lynn was very attentive and so pleasant, a genuinely lovely person, as were all the islanders we met. Port Ellen is well placed to explore... More

What a lovely stay here in Port Ellen with Lynn and her husband! Our room was nothing flash, but the feel of the whole place was beautiful. Very cosy, comfortable and homely! The location is great for exploring the distilleries on the island and also very close to the Port Ellen ferry terminal. The breakfast was probably one of the... More

We have been warmly welcomed by Lynn & Harry, that are delicious people. The rooms are incredibly quiet, with the view on the sea. The B&B is located close to Ardbeg, Laphroaig and Lagavulin distileries (10 minutes by car) and next to the Hardview Inn (bar with approximately 200 different whiskies). For the breakfast, ask the Scotish salmon toasts with... More
