We spent just one night at the Trout Fly on a trip to Islay. However, I can't wait to go back. Mary is a wonderful host and her enthusiasm for Islay and Jura and her encouragement of her guests to explore (with her expert advice) is second to none. Our room was comfortable, cozy and spotlessly clean. The breakfast was... More

Wonderful, personalized service! Met at the door and immediately took up to room without any fuss or preliminaries. Great breakfast, and very helpful during our stay. Newly appointed and renovated room. A bit small, but typical for Great Britain.

I stayed with a friend at The Trout Fly, initially for two nights. We cancelled our adventures elsewhere to stay here for another two nights. I have never had, nor could I wish for, kinder, friendlier, and more generous hosts than Don and Mary. I had exchanged several emails with Mary leading up to our arrival as there was uncertainty...

Excellent location, superb service. Mary came out as we were walking in and made us feel completely at home. Rooms were small -- the only downside, but normal for the UK. Our room was newly renovated and spotless clean. Made breakfasts to order -- wonderful trip!!

I recently stayed here with my girlfriend and Mary could not have been more welcoming. The breakfast's were huge and of great quality. I had to ask for a smaller portion the next day! The room itself was good. Very clean and with the sort of amenities one would expect in a B&B. My only comment would be that the... More

I've just spent 6 nights at the Trout Fly and I had an amazing stay! Mary and Donald did everything possible to make my stay on Islay a very pleasant one. They were just so nice and helpful. The breakfast was great and it kept me going until dinner time. The house is decorated with taste and spotless clean. It... More

The Trout Fly is located very conveniently for the ferry terminal and for local facilities and eateries. I arrived at midday but was welcome to leave my bags so I could stay out late as I wanted to make the most of the good weather. I was treated as a friend right away as were the other guests who were... More

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.
