“Beautifully appointed cottage in remote area”
Reviewed 12 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Islay is a beautiful island with much to do if you are interested - which we are - in nature and wildlife. Coullabus Beag is set in rolling farm and moorland with gorgeous views in every direction. The house is spacious, comfortable and decorated tastefully throughout. The kitchen is particularly well appointed and all equipment is easy to use. The cottage has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, one of which is adapted for use by a wheelchair user. There is a neat little garden with a sheltered terrace. We sat there one evening watching the sun go down. Thankfully the midges this year were on holiday somewhere else! The place is pet friendly - indeed the owners run a kennel in their adjacent home. The owners were friendly and helpful when needed. We didn't see that much of them as we were out most days and they were busy with work and family.

We had a really lovely time there but we had one or two minor niggles. The cottage was much further inland than we had expected so we had quite a drive after getting off the ferry. It was also quite a way to the major town, Bowmore. Also, the rear of the cottage backed onto a work yard which was also unexpected.

“Home from Home - Excellent”
Reviewed 12 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We are a family of four and this was our first visit to Islay. We weren't disappointed! The bungalow is extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean. There's everything you could need - and more! Although this was July, our first morning was dreary and wet - but that didn't spoil our day - we lit the log burner (plenty of wood available at no charge) and cosied up! The kitchen is exceptionally well equipped. There are two bathrooms/shower rooms - very handy! The two bedrooms are, again, very well furnished. The beds were very comfortable - in the twin room the beds were adjustable for feet/back height and angle. The views are uninterrupted from the bungalow and we were fortunate to see some amazing sunsets while we were there. Janet and Andrew were great hosts - there when you need them but not in your face. Our only complaint is that we should've booked a longer stay! We highly recommend this accommodation and would definitely book again when we next get the chance to visit this beautiful island.

“Great stay on Islay”
Reviewed 25 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

The house is very well equipped. Due to the central location near Loch Gruinart you have a good starting point to explore the island. And especially nice were the pleasant conversations with the owner. We had a very exciting week and have known Islay very well. So we can only say - thank you very much.

Peaceful bungalow in former farmyard next door to the owners' house. All mod cons - including a bread maker! Lovely views across to Loch Guirnart. Great location for exploring the Rinns and the rest of Islay.
