I was cycling around Islay and stayed a night at this B&B in Lyrabus. I got thier early so I could drop of my panniers and then i headed of around the Rhinns. The accomodation was excellent and the breakfast was very good indeed. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this B&B to all. Several Highland... More

Ideal location in the centre of Islay suitable for visiting all the distilleries during the recent whisky festival ( Feis Ile). Gibson and Deirdrie, both born and bred on Islay made me feel extremely welcome and were a wealth of local knowledge. The accommodation was absolutely brilliant and the breakfast each morning, legendary with a view from the dining room... More

Whilst the weather was hardly perfect, everything else about our 3 night stay on Islay was - and particularly our choice of B&B. Maybe a little remote for some, being 3 miles from the nearest village, this was fully compensated by the views and the accommodation. Very comfortable and well equipped rooms. Deirdre and Gibson proved excellent hosts, and breakfast... More

Faultless hospitality and superb breakfasts. Deirdre and Gibson are marvellous hosts, and so knowledgeable and proud of their wonderful Island. Spotlessly clean with comfortable beds, complimentary fresh milk, bottled water, and Irn Bru in our own small fridge made our room stay so comfortable. Be aware this is not a place to watch TV as reception is not great Tips:... More

The room was very spacious and we had an extra bathroom. The room was very clean and offered a spectacular view over the Isle of Islay. Dierdre and Gibson cooked... More

We stayed at the Lyrabus Croft for only two days but we got a warm welcome like we were a part of the family. Its a little bit tricky to find the croft, but when you know where you have to turn (before the bridge, half way to Bruichladdich) it is no problem. A small metal rooster and a blue... More

Stayed here with a friend, whilst doing a trip of the west coast. We were pleased that our stay on the Island also coincided with the malt and music festival. The twin room we had was a little on the small side but because we had booked fairly late given the festival, we were pleased to be staying here. The... More

Lyrabus is a comfortable B&B on a sheep farm in a central location on Islay. The stay includes a nice, full Scottish breakfast, cooked by Dierdre and served by Gibson. We had a wee bit of trouble finding it because their sign doesn't clearly identify it as the B&B, so look for a sculpted metal rooster on a post at... More

Great B&B with beautiful room, super friendly owners and a good, hearty breakfast! I would definitely be back. As long as you don't mind driving to get there, there's really no reason not to stay at this place!
