I had the great pleasure of staying at the Octofad B&B in Islay in June this year. When I arrived I was made to feel very welcome and the owner Cathy was very helpful. 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

We stayed on Islay the week before the whisky festival, it was a thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable holiday and Octofad Farm was a great place to stay. Cathy is so friendly and welcoming, our room was very nice with a lovely bathroom, and the porridge and kippers were absolutely delicious. The farm is in a beautiful situation with stunning views...

Our ferry to Islay was delayed by some 7 hours, meaning that it was gone 10pm when we eventually arrived at Octofad Farm. No matter! Despite the late hour, Cathy was outside welcoming us to her lovely home! We enjoyed 4 nights hospitality here, and particularly enjoyed not just the welcome, but the relaxed style of the place, the large... More

On arrival I had to take a few minutes just appreciate the view, it is stunning, a uninterrupted vista across the water of Loch Indaal. The Paps of Jura standing majestic overlooking the Isles of Islay and Jura. A very warm welcome was offered by Cathy and I was promptly served coffe and biscuits in the lounge. The bedroom was...
