Holiday Rental House
A modern, elevated house with superb views over Loch Indaal, with comfortable well-appointed accommodation and excellent facilities, Ellister Lodge is situated on the 300-acre Easter Ellister estate on the Rinns of Islay, near the pretty seaside village of Port Charlotte. Often called the Queen of the Hebrides, Islay is the most southerly of the Hebridean islands. Elllister Lodge is in a natural setting on the Rinns of Islay, it being a designated Special Protection Area with all kinds of wildlife. 1/3rd acre plot with extensive decking and (enclosed, safe) viewing and relaxing platforms. Fully insulated with full double glazing. Fully accessible with access ramps, three sets of French windows and modern-width internal doorways. Sorry – no pets or smoking indoors....A modern, elevated house with superb views over Loch Indaal, with comfortable well-appointed accommodation and excellent facilities, Ellister Lodge is situated on the 300-acre Easter Ellister estate on the Rinns of Islay, near the pretty seaside village of Port Charlotte.

We're not in our Islay home when you are, of course, but will be available by phone and email during your stay. Our housekeeper and maintenance people are pretty responsive, if needed.

I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay, the house, the island - and good weather! Poor Brodie, you'll need to get some for him! The deer are pretty reliable visitors, it all adds to a good time on the island. Do come again!

Antonia, many thanks, delighted you had a good time - and saw a baby coo arrive. You may have seen the barn owl in the barn right next door, but it tends to keep antisocial hours. Thanks again!
