We stayed in Muran. For the price, you couldn't ask for anything more. It was a little basic, the shower and the bed for example but I am not complaining at all. And our hosts were extremely helpful and welcoming. The situation of this cottage on Islay is unrivalled, the view incredible and the peace and quiet just what we... More

After reading some of the enthusiastic reviews I e mailed the owner to book a night there with our small Motorhome. I was told they had fresh water which was all we really need. However, on arrival, there was no one there at all to greet us. We were immediately put off by all the rules and regulations that were... More

Me and my wife spent there two nights because all B&Bs on Islay were full when we contacted them those days (what a surprise ;-)). We needed a shower after some wild camping. This place has a really nice location. You can watch sunset from your tent or the beach and listen to the waves whole night. My wife had... More

Interesting reading these reviews. I agree with both the negative and the positive ones. In terms of the former, it is expensive for the level of facilities on offer. I was surprised to find myself handing over £85 for 5 nights (2 adults and a small family tent). Perhaps new owners would invest in a dedicated toilet block but at... More

The location is superb for those who like to camp right on the shore. Beautiful beach views, spectacular sunsets, and the sound of the waves to send you to sleep. A word of warning - it can be very windy and so you'll need a robust tent. The facilities are adequate - 2 toilets and one shower each for men... More

We stayed in Machair Cottage whilst we were up for the whisky festival. We all had a fantastic time. Mrs MacTaggart and her husband were very helpful. The house was very well equipped and we were given welcome biscuits which everyone loved. Yes it was expensive, but the location alone made it worth it. We would definitely go back. The... More

I do not recommend you camp at Kintra Farm!! I have never stayed in a campsite with such high prices and such poor facilities. I don’t mind basic facilities at all however; these facilities are extremely poor for the price you pay. The price is calculated per person and a fee for tent etc is added on. There is only... More

Terrific location, beach, peace and quiet. Camped for 3 nights, one of the best campsites in the World, and I've been to a few. Not the kind of place you go to to watch telly or use your mobile phone. Watch the sunset and wildlife instead! Recommended!

We booked a night but never made it to the farm. When we called to pick up the keys the lady almost insulted us because we didn't come straight from the ferry. She started telling us she didn't wan't to rent the room anymore and was very patronising. The most surprising thing is that when we tried to set up... More
