Kilchoman House

Kilchoman House

Farmhouse -
5 Bedrooms , 5 Bathrooms , Sleeps 10
Port Charlotte, Islay, The Hebrides, Scotland
Kilchoman is a wonderful property. The traditional house gives a small taste of Islay life from nearly two hundred years ago, albeit with all the comforts of modern living. Set in 37 acres of sheltered farm and hill land, it has its own walled garden and is bounded by our own fields. Very close to magnificent beaches and a host of bird and wildlife. Kilchoman Whisky Distillery is just cross the fields.

The Georgian house was built in 1825-6 and stands in a sheltered hollow with a burn running through the garden. Originally the manse for Kilchoman Church which stands at the top of the hill, it was sold as a private home in the 1930s.

About the neighbourhood
The Rhinns of Islay where Kilchoman is has a much wilder beauty than the centre of the island. Rugged coastlines with magnificent beaches, some miles long with golden sands and perfect picnic beaches.

The area is rich in wildlife, Golden Eagles are regularly seen, with choughs nesting on the bluffs behind Kilchoman and of course the flocks of Geese in spring and Autumn. The area is a magnet for bird enthusiasts with the RSPB Reserve at Gruinart a big attraction.

There are several very interesting coastal walks with some very wild scenery. The walk around Ardnave point is particularly interesting with some lovely beaches with resident seals.

Quieter than the rest of the island there are still some excellent restaurants and a perfect base for a relaxing break.
