Fabulous turf-roofed guest accommodation set in an beautiful secluded spot high on the Oa peninsula on the Hebridean island of Islay, Scotland. The architect designed lodge is clad in local stone and has been carefully built by island and Argyll craftsmen. With its turf roof the building appears to flow out of the landscape in perfect harmony with its very special surroundings. The light and spacious interiors are in Scottish eco-chic style with bespoke touches sitting in harmony with iconic mid century furniture. Soft furnishings are in our own tweed designed for us by the iconic Islay Woollen Mill - suppliers of tweed to many films including Braveheart. The lodge sleeps 2-4 in two ensuite bedrooms each with a double ended bath and walk in shower. You can enjoy unpolluted night skies a...Fabulous turf-roofed guest accommodation set in an beautiful secluded spot high on the Oa peninsula on the Hebridean island of Islay, Scotland.

About the neighbourhood
Set high in a world of its own on the Oa peninsula Coillabus enjoys wonderful views over heather and sea towards, Ireland, Kintyre and the rest of Islay. Yet the lodge is just a ten minute drive from the village of Port Ellen and a half hour flight from Glasgow International Airport. The island of Islay is known as the Queen of the Hebrides and is famed for its eight iconic malt whisky distilleriess, miles of sandy beaches, wildlife and bird watching, golf and watersports. The lodge has a fishing permit for trout fishing on the nearby lochs. Golden eagles are spotted regularly from the wide galleried windows of Coillabus.
How to get there
Calmac ferry service from Kennacraig on the Scottish mainland takes about 2 hours. Regular Loganair flights from Glasgow International airport. We.re less than ten minutes drive from the airport and the nearest ferry port. Car and bike hire are available on the island.
