We look forward to welcoming you to Coillabus Cottage - a house with real character that will make a comfortable base for your stay on Islay.

This very special cottage is situated in a beautiful secluded spot at the heart of a working hill farm four miles from the village of Port Ellen. Coillabus Cottage has three bedrooms and sleeps up to 6. 

With ever-changing views over grass, heather and sea to Kintyre and Ireland, no wonder many of our guests just stay put and enjoy the peaceful surroundings, enjoying a game of Coillabus croquet or trying to spot the Oa's resident Golden Eagles from the garden. From Coillabus you can walk undisturbed for miles in any direction, discovering hidden bays, lochs and cliff-top paths. And we are only a short drive away from Islay's famous whisky distillleries,  award-winning restaurants and miles of sandy beaches.

Just ten minutes away from Machrie Golf course Coillabus is an ideal base for a golfing holiday. Or take the fly rod  (we have a permit) and walk to the nearby Glenastle Lochs for scenic fishing. And did we mention the canopy of stars in the unpolluted night skies?

"I nearly cried when it came to leaving because I felt I belonged and didn't want to go back to cars, TV  and stress.  What an amazing place and people. Thank you once again for wonderful Coillabus Cottage.  We will definitely be back."
