Welcome to Islay Cottages

Islay Cottages offers first-class self-catering and B&B holiday accommodation on the picturesque island of Islay. We have accommodation in both the village of Bowmore (Dundonald Cottage and Tarbert House B&B) and rural Kilchoman (Kilchoman House and Kilchoman Cottages) offering lots of choice for our guests.

Bowmore is the main village on Islay, on the shores of Lochindaal. A great base for your holiday with shops, restaurants and amenities, and of course Bowmore Distillery. Kilchoman is a rural settlement, close to long sandy beaches and very well placed for wildlife enthusiasts, particularly those interested in birds. The famous Kilchoman Distillery is also close by.

Kilchoman House and Cottages

Kilchoman House is on the west coast of Islay. Set in the grounds of 37 acres of rolling fields, right next door to a magnificent mile-long sandy beach. The main house is an 1820s former manse which is thought to be built on the site of the Lords of the Isles summer palace. The house has been fully restored and beautifully furnished into a large self-catering property to sleep up to twelve people. Kilchoman House is ideal both for multi-generation family holidays, fishing and sporting parties, as well as groups looking for a break from city life.

Kilchoman House

Kilchoman Cottages stand further up the hill from the main house. They are a cluster of five cottages, each with two or three bedrooms that offer exceptional self-catering accommodation in Islay. Named after the beautiful beaches of the island, all have central heating as well as warming open fires that provide comfortable and secure accommodation in a lovely setting. There are laundry facilities on-site and we can arrange for covered storage for bikes if required.

All of our properties have WiFi, Satellite TV, and the modern conveniences that help to make Islay Cottages your home away from home.
