There is a tv, freesat box, dvd, bluetooth sound system and large selection of books & games. A log burning stove and underfloor heating throughout makes winter stays as toasty as summer ones. There is a large, private, mature and well maintained garden with uninterrupted and breathtaking views across Lochindaal. Ample car parking within the property grounds is available for guests. • Bed linen and bath towels are provided (not beach towels) • Electricity and heating are provided free of charge (reasonable use) • As dogs are welcome at Portbahn, please be aware if you have allergies Large Groups We are happy to have larger groups of adults staying, but please note no parties, stag or hen dos are allowed and that 4 of the beds are in one room, it's certainly not ideal if all the beds are being used by adults. Kitchen Cupboard! We have an honesty box system in the house, we have supplied basic and useful items which you will find in the kitchen cupboard. You'll find everything in here from cooking oil, ketchup, tea, herbal teas, coffee, washing liquid, biscuits, cereals, tins, shampoo, conditioner, herbs, spices etc... all we ask is that you pop a few coins in the pot so we can buy more for future guests. We also supply toilet rolls, washing liquid, kitchen paper, foil etc ... we want to make it as easy as possible for you!More

House was perfect for 2 adults, 2 kids and a wee dog. Love the island,  especially the beaches. Especially enjoyed my morning walk for cake, coffee and chat at the very handy Bruichladdich market ... and the seafood platter at the nearby Lochindaal. Great host.

Perfect location to shelter from the wild weather of Islay - snow, hail and sunshine all in one hour, then back to the lovely house with it's woodburning stove and picture window.

The house was perfect for us, three couples. We could easily have spent longer in the house, but sadly we were just on a weekend break. We'll kitted out, amazing views and not too far from anywhere.

About the neighbourhood
We are situated on the Rhinns of Islay; a short walk will get you to Bruichladdich Distillery, home of many quality whiskies, including Octomore & Black Art, and of course Islay's only gin, The Botanist. They are now running gin tours as well as whisky tours. As well as being a 10min walk from Bruichladdich Distillery, it is the same distance to the local shop (post office) for every day needs, as well as great coffee and a toastie or bacon sandwich! Port Charlotte is a 40 min walk or a 5 min drive and has three good restaurants and the hotel has evenings of local music. Port Mor also has a Bistro and a playground at the campsite. Bowmore has a comprehensive supermarket sufficient for all needs during a stay and is a 15 min drive.
Getting around
Islay bus will stop at the driveway to the house. Please find a bus timetable in your welcome pack.
