Octofad Farm is just a couple of miles south of Port Charlotte along the coast. Like the entire Isle of Islay, the area around the b&b is quiet and agricultural, mostly sheep pastures. For a ten-week period in the early fall of 2014, I toured throughout the islands and Highlands, staying in a number of places. Octofad Farm was certainly... More

This beautiful B&B far exceeded our expectations. The setting was amazing - absolutely stunning location. And the owner, Cathy, could not be more kind and welcoming. Best breakfasts ever! We had our 10 year old grandson with us - very family friendly and accommodating.

We stayed 3 nights at Octofad and absolutely loved it. We were so impressed with our room, the bathroom and the very large lounge area for the guests to relax in and treat as their own. It just felt so welcoming and we were so relaxed. Cathy was just wonderful and so accommodating. The view from Octofad is truly wonderful.... More

The room was large with a superb bathroom - a bidet even! I They also have WIFI which worked well. There is a common sitting room... More

We recently stayed for two nights at Octofad Farm and had a delightful stay. Cathy was incredibly accommodating and the room was well appointed and very comfortable. Would highly recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a place on Islay.

We recently cycled round Islay and stayed at Octofad Farm where we were warmly welcomed by Cathy and her husband with a lovely pot of tea and (for me) lovely gluten free cakes and biscuits. Our room was spacious, quiet, comfortable, wonderful bed and equally wonderful breakfast. On learning we were cycling on to another B and B in the... More

We stayed with Cathy at the end of September for three nights. This was by far the best B&B we stayed in on our three week tour of Scotland. The rooms were spacious and ensuite, there was a lounge we could relax in and the dining room had the most exquisite views. This is a working farm with cattle and... More

We stayed in eight different inns/B&Bs on our trip, and Octofad Farm was absolutely the best! As others have noted, Cathy's hospitality is second to none, and we felt completely comfortable from the moment we arrived to the day we took our (reluctant) leave. Staying at Octofad, you not only get a sense of what life on Islay is like,... More

I stayed here with friends from the mainland and we were all agreed that this Guest House sets the standard for the rest. Cathy came out to meet us, prepared tea and coffee while we unpacked, and made us feel immediately at home. Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were of a good size with all amenities, and everything... More
