Beautiful guest house with charming bedroom, neat bathroom, comfortable beds, and most of all great hospitality from the owners. The scottish breakfast was really tasty and fulfilling. It is located just in front of the airport and relatively close to Port Ellen.

We were motorcycling and mostly camping across Scotland on our summer trip and this luxurious abode was just what our weary butts required. Needless to say, Emma and Graeme were fantastic hosts. We were greeted with tea and lot's of goodies; I was even tempted to fill my jacket pockets with cakes and biscuits for those rainy evenings later in... More

It was easy to find (directly across from the airport so convenient fir travellers) with plenty of parking.

The Glengedale house is a must stay when you are on Islay, Emma and Graeme are excellent hosts, 5 stars is not adequate to describe how wonderful it is. Starting with well appointed and comfortable rooms, the view of the ocean, the size of the property, it is all outstanding. The day begins with a cook to order breakfast, and... More

Graeme and Emma are the best hosts, fantastic cooks (the porridge "addition" is a great touch) and give thoughtful advice. They helped us organize tours of the local distilleries and directed us to some hidden spots around the island. Be sure to ask Emma about Prince Charles' visit to Islay.
