Islay Holidays offer two simply stunning holiday homes on the beautiful Isle of Islay. An Cuan and Solas are located midway between Bowmore and Port Ellen and are only a couple of miles from the beautiful village of Port Ellen, one of two ferry ports on Islay. Both houses have magnificent views over Laggan Bay and are a five minute walk from the Big Strand, a seven mile stretch of sand backed by dunes.
Both houses sleep eight are beautifully situated on an elevated position. Free Wifi access in both houses. Solas and An Cuan are decorated and furnished to an extremely high standard and are the ideal destination for discerning holidaymakers.
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 6 but is also perfect for couples.
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 and walk to the nearby Glenastle Lochs for scenic fishing. And did we mention the canopy of stars in the unpolluted night skies?

Isle Of Islay
Argyll And Bute
Welcome to Callumkill, an estate situated at the South Eastern corner of the Isle of Islay, the southern-most isle of the Inner Hebrides. Callumkill Farmhouse is set high on a ridge with inspiring views over fields of plump sheep, the pagodas of both Ardbeg and Lagavulin distilleries and the sea. On a clear day you can see the Ireland to the west and Arran and the Mull of Kintyre to the east.
The setting is tranquil and remote, yet the town of Port Ellen is only a few miles away and Ardbeg distillery with its full flavoured peaty whisky is at the foot of the farm road. In fact the lochs of Callumkill supply Lagavulin and Ardbeg distilleries with the water that makes those distinctive drams.
On the hills of Callumkill we farm cattle and sheep, provide stalking of red and fallow deer and shooting of wild pheasant, snipe and woodcock and we have two very different properties for holiday let.
