Great B&B right on the water down a private drive. There is a light house right outside the front door. Our room was comfortable and the location was gorgeous. There is a shared bathroom, a usable kitchen, laundry on site (which we found very convenient, costs £5), and the lovely lady who runs it cooked us a full Scottish breakfast... More

A friend of mine booked this place it was difficult to find another one that would not be crazy expensive or only bookable for the whole week. Location is great. Close of the Ocean, very remote, lovely. The drawback: quite far for Bowmore: don't expect to walk back. The house itself is big and nice. Wifi is working fine (good... More

Clean friendly, by a lighthouse, ideal location to explore the island and spend time in quiet but still have all the modern amenities you need. Internet and free view tv in rooms. Hosts friendly and helpful.

We stayed at Carraig Fhada for 3 nights in Aug 28/12. Rooms are spacious with TV and kettle with coffee and tea to enjoy anytime. The beds were comfortable and the view from our room was of the lighthouse and water, gorgeous! Sally was a terrific hostess. Breakfast was anything you wanted from fruit, cereal, yogurt to a full Scottish... More

What a pity we could only stay one night (ferry was fully booked). Loved the place! Just the perfect place to enjoy Islay. The 5 of us could have sit in front of the house for hours. Rooms are simple, breakfast excellent. Thanks Sally for the lovely stay.

What a find - Sally & Harry have a most wonderful property in a fantastic location, so peaceful, the views where amazing especially the white lighthouse. Don't be put off by the track leading from the road. Sally is a lovely hostess and cooks a great breakfast. We stayed in the self contained unit, because we had a dog, and... More

When one of your goals is 'escaping' the ratrace from the modern western world, this is the place to be! Carraig Fhada is only surrounded by beautifull nature en the calming sounds of the sea! No traffic, sounds of industry, just peace and quiet. The building consist of a private part in which Sally (owner) and her husband are living,... More

I have stayed at Carraig Fhada many times - at the b&b, in the self catering apartments, I've always had a fantastic trip. You couldn't get a better location - it's worth the trip along the dirt track (drive slowly)... Total peace and quiet and lovely views across the bay to Port Ellen. Kilnaughton Bay, the magical Singing Sands, and... More

Lovely farmhouse on the edge of the sea next to a romantic lighthouse. Sally is very welcoming and is flexible about providing a good breakfast at the time you indicate.(Most places give you a specific time period.) We had a comfortable bed with a nice area for the suitcases. The bathroom was shared with only one other room and was... More
