Guest Access

The house, garden, woodshed and parking are available for use by guests.

As this is still a family home guests are asked to please take care of rugs, furniture and to respect the house as if it was their own. There is one room upstairs which is locked and for private use of the family. The outdoor sheds, garage, barns etc... are out of bounds for guests also.

We will deal with your enquiries and booking and can be contacted at any time during your stay. We might see you at changeover times.

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 reserve a space and turn up at the port and then can't get on the ferry or for those that miss the ferry (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 any of these issues.

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.
