Katherine welcomed us when we arrived after 8pm. The stay was comfortable in every way. I couldn't recommend this place highly enough. The twin room & bathroom were huge, the comfort throughout was wonderful. The location is perfect for exploring Islay.

Swallows sweep the surface of the river and many birds spend time in the trees opposite. A few minutes walk up the road leads to the start of a 3 mile walk through mixed... More

Stayed at this homely guesthouse for two nights, very comfortable, delicious breakfast. The owner Katherine was very friendly and helpful, would definitely return. Bridgend is an ideal central location to explore the island.
