Self-catering cottages on Islay
Our fabulous self-catering cottages on Islay are the perfect getaway! Kilchoman Cottages stand above Kilchoman House and comprise of four, two-bedroom cottages and a separate three-bedroom cottage. The original block was the minister’s former stable and coach house until their conversion to individual holiday cottages. Guests can access both from the large car park to the front, where there is seating, or from the garden behind. On the lower level, patio doors open towards another seating area with a BBQ and a view over the burn and hills behind. There are large grassy areas to play or relax on and it is completely safe for families of all ages.
Surrounded by history
Across the field is a cave which was once occupied by our ancestors, as various ancient artefacts including an arrowhead have been found. Kilchoman Church, built on the site of the ancient Chapel of St Comman, is reputedly home to the grave of McLean of Duart who was killed at the battle of Traigh Ghruineart in 1598.
What is included
Each individual cottage is named after the beaches of Islay’s west coast, meaning you have to visit the beach of the cottage you are staying in! Each has central heating throughout and open fires to create cosy nights in. You’ll find initial supplies of coal or peat in a bunker by your back door.
Each two-bedroom cottage has a comfortably furnished sitting room with a dining area and kitchen for enjoying a meal together. Upstairs there is a double and twin bedroom. With Wifi, Satellite TV, a DVD Player and a large selection of books and games, you’ll never run out of things to do.
The kitchen has a range of appliances to suit your needs including a toaster, cooker, microwave and fridge freezer. Extra freezer space is also available in the Laundry Room. We suuply linen and towels. We can also place a cot and high chair in the cottage should you require this, just let us know in advance.
