Gumtree Cottage is located on the Scottish Isle of Islay and can be found within the village of Coal Ila. The accommodations is located in an annex of the main house. Very spacious and comfortable, just perfect for a relaxing break. Hosts very helpful. Possibly the best accommodation we have had. Highly recommend.
Port Askaig Hotel has a restaurant, bar, a shared lounge and garden in Port Askaig. With free WiFi, this 2-star hotel offers luggage storage space. The location of this property is great, a stones throw from the ferry terminal. Also very close to Caol Ila and Bunnahabhain distilleries. Live music in the bar some Saturday nights, we ended up joining in and singing a few Irish songs too! The rooms are cosy and really feels like a nice family run Hotel. I will be back here to stay in the future!
Located on the Isle of Iona, 1640 feet from the Iona Ferry Terminal, Ardoran House features a sun terrace and a private beach area. Iona Abbey is 0.8 mi from the property. Such a peaceful property to stay in. Richard takes very good care of his guests.The food was wonderful and the location perfect for exploring the island. Loved the lounge area and sunroom as quiet places to relax.

Located in small island of Iona near Mull, surrounded with beautiful scenary. Smashingly decorated pods with all amenties that you need to survive your staying on the island :) As well really clean.
Within 15 minutes’ drive of 4 of the Isle of Islay’s whiskey distilleries, Skerrols House has uninterrupted countryside views and is just a 5-minute drive from the coastal village of Bridgend. Bed n amenities were excellent croissants n fruits were extra delicious but the porridge was out of this world.
Beaches were superb. Most people were friendly. They need to get more small businesses and craft industries going. This gem of an island needs to expand its local community and use the talents of the local people to save it's community
The only problem was that several of the little shops and attractions were shut because... it was Thursday! Nowhere did I find information about that before landing on the island or I might have changed my visit day. Some shops even said on the welcome blurb on landing (nice touch) that they were closed when they were open and others vice versa. It frustrated an otherwise lovely, but brief, visit.
We were so lucky with the weather. But what impressed me was the warmth of welcome coming off the ferry with visitor information which we used during our stay. I loved how the local businesses worked together to promote food and drink and crafts from the island.
The island has a small population with few facilities. There is no ATM but money can be obtained using a credit card at the post office; there is a well-stocked general store. There is also a small, but very good, café called 'The Pantry' which provides wholesome meals. The island's size makes it ideal for walkers and there is little traffic to worry about on the single track roads. The wide sandy beach at Kiloran Bay is a gem and you are likely to have it all to yourself. The main 'busy' period is caused by the arrival of the daily ferry from Oban, this being the only regular connection with civilisation.
