Theses cottages are more like houses. Very tastefully decorated. Ours had 4 bedrooms all with own ensuites. Fully equipped kitchen. Huge lounge, dining area, washing machine which was a real bonus! and close to everything. Within walking distance to shops, restaurants and of course the Bowmore Distillery. Highly recommended.

Plenty of space, high quality accommodation. Clean. Great location. Can't fault it - even got a free bottle of Bowmore 12 included and the distillery tour. Use of the local leisure centre is also nice! :) lots to do, nice shops, walking and the 8 distillery a on Islay. Jura only a 15 minute drive and 5 minute ferry away.

My room was big, with a couple of windows, one of them looking to the bay. Furniture all right, well furnished kitchen with all the necessary... More

Absolutely Fabulous! We were a group of 8 touring whisky distilleries on Islay. We took the Old Bakery and it was well worth it for us. It has 7 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms, huge living room and several seating areas. There's a huge kitchen with everything you'd ever need to cook a slap-up dinner for 8. It was spotlessly clean....

Located in what was once distillery workers' lodging, located next door to Bowmore Distillery, in an extremely convenient location near restaurants, stores, etc. Each cottage has a fully equipped kitchen and is totally renovated. While you may cook and eat in cottage, beware that you must not leave any food behind when you depart, or will be assessed a few.... More

The Bowmore cottages were basically attached/next door to the Bowmore distillery. You couldn't ask for a better location to explore the town of Bowmore from let alone a great location to be based out of to explore the whole island and all of it's charm. Their are a few nearby restaurants, but be sure to have reservations if dining during... More

9 of us stayed in the old bakery, and found it to be excellent accommodation. It is very spacious inside, and would easily have accommodated our better half's aswell! It is a very clean, modern and comfortable house, with everything you require provided. Well placed for the shop, leisure centre and bars/restaurants. The bottle of Bowmore 12 year was an... More
