Had a great stay at kentraw whilst on a work trip to islay. Isabel was so friendly, the room was very comfortable and the breakfast fantastic! Donald took us too see the local wildlife he is a true expert on the island and knows all of the best places to visit. Thanks Craig

We stayed in Kentraw during the whisky festival for 1 night and would have loved to stay for longer! Kentraw is immaculately finished and kept to an extremely high standard. Our room was spacious and the bathroom beautiful. The best bit of our stay was definitely the breakfast, fresh coffee of any type, cooked breakfast, pancakes, fruit, it was all... More

Kentraw farmhouse made a perfect base for our four days' exploration of Islay. The farmhouse has been beautifully and comfortably restored, with the wood burning stove being lit whenever one wished to enjoy the sitting room, day or evening. Isabel and Donald were perfect hosts; the breakfasts were splendid. We would recommend it to everyone.

Stayed for 8 days in this lovely B&B. Had a warm welcome by Isabel and Donald who made us feel at home. Modern, yet very cosy rooms in a quiet enviroment. Perfect breakfast and enjoyable and warm evenings with the other guests and hosts. We would certainly stay again.

The reviews on Kentraw Farmhouse are spot on. Isobel and Donald are superb B&B hosts - no change that, are superb hosts full stop. From the moment you arrive they are delighted to see you as if old friends, and throughout our 4 day stay in May they remained that way. Chatty and informative about where to go and what... More

Myself and 4 colleagues visited Islay as our main destination for a weeks trip to the Western Isles and the Cowal peninsula, with Kentraw our accommodation for the 2 nights after a long ride up from Hertfordshire and Yorkshire. On a late arrival we were met with a welcoming smile and help to store our bikes in the barn. A... More

Me and boyfriend stayed here for three nights when visiting the distilleries in February for my birthday. Isobel welcomed us when we arrived and we automatically felt at home. The house itself is beautiful, and home made pancakes awaited us with fresh cups of coffee. Donald and Isobel were the perfect hosts, stoking the fire for us, and intuitively knowing... More

Very cosy place with lovely people. Donald used to be a hunter and has great stories. They both do it with utter love for their guests. Made us feel right at home with the care they took of us! Erwin en Odile

We stayed at Kentraw Farmhouse for 4 nights in March. The house itself is quite new and seemingly purpose-built, with a nice mix of modernity and cosiness. We stayed in Room 2 (the master suite) which was enormous, in spotless condition and with a very comfy (and huge) bed. Breakfast was similarly excellent. The location is a slight juxtaposition of...
