Booking Policy

Getting to Islay is your responsibility!

If coming by car please make sure you have booked yourself onto a ferry with Calmac from Kennacraig to either Port Askaig or Port Ellen (both ports half an hour from the house).  We cannot be held responsible and will not give refunds to people who don't book a space.  You cannot turn up at the port and expect to get a place on the ferry and please make sure you leave plenty of time and check in half an hour before the ferry leaves.  

It is also imperative that you have travel insurance incase the ferry does not sail due to bad weather or technical issues.  You can then claim on your insurance.  We do not give refunds for not being able to get to Islay.

RING Doorbell
We have WiFi Ring doorbells in our properties, pointing outward at the driveway. The camera in the doorbell records and is motion-activated & operates 24/7. There are NO cameras inside the property.  We live on Jura and unfortunately there has been a spate of oil theft on Islay so we were feeling a bit vulnerable, we have no interest in viewing guests comings and goings

Outside Room
We live on Jura and rarely, but sometimes get stuck on Islay due to ferry issues or timings.  There is a self contained outdoor room by the garage at Portbahn which has a sofabed in it.  On the very rare occassion that we might get stuck we will get in contact with Portbahn guests to say that we will be using this room for the night.  It is totally separate from the house and would not disturb you in the house in any way.

Portbahn Holiday Cottage , Isle of Islay, United Kingdom

Portbahn, Islay is PA49 7UN (there is no street address). Heading for Bruichladdich from the ports (airport or ferry ports) you need to drive through Bruichladdich village towards Port Charlotte with the sea on your left. You will pass Bruichladdich Pier on your left, Gleaners Oil Depot on your right, then pass three more houses on your right and then you will see two white bungalows set back from the road also on the right.

Portbahn is the second white bungalow. Turn right into the drive and turn left and park in the parking area next to the house. Please use the doors at the back of the house where you park, in through the rear conservatory. We never use the "front" door and it is locked.
