I'm just back from having a very relaxing 4 night stay at the Guest House. The breakfast each morning was amazing, I have to agree with all the other reviews about Marys porridge best I've tasted. I highly recommend the Trout Fly if your visiting Islay.

We stayed one night in the Trout Fly in Port Ellen. Mary and Donnie are excellent hosts and we enjoyed their chat. Rooms are rather small but clean and tidy. Breakfast was excellent and there is a small lounge to relax in after a day exploring Islay.

We returned to the US 2 days ago after a 3 week holiday in Scotland. Our first day was in Port Ellen. We stayed at the Trout Fly.

A stones throw away from the ferry, lovely clean rooms, comfy bed and a breakfast fit for a king. Mary was the perfect hostess and she knows how to send you on your way with a full tummy! Excellent value for money.

It was a thouroughly pleasant experience to stay at this B&B, Mary Mackay is the perfect host and made us feel very welcome. The room was spotless and the cozy lounge downstairs was a perfect place to finish the evening after a long day afield. A solid Scottish breakfast was served in the morning. Visiting Islay from Norway was a... More
