Linda was a great host, attentive to all our needs, helpful in guiding us around and making reservations for the visits. It was a perfect choice for us and...

Friends & I stayed here for two nights. It's really comfortable, plenty of tea & coffee all day both in the bedrooms & the lounge downstairs. Spotlessly clean & tastefully decorated. Plenty of choice at breakfast. The hosts are so welcoming & helpful, we really felt at home. Covenient for the ferry & local shops, restaurants etc. Highly recommended.

Our holiday to Islay was in doubt because of a ferry cancellation but local knowledge and community connections from our hosts Niall and Linda saved the day. Niall went beyond expectations and personally met us at the ferry and we were on our way with a hire car and enjoying the exceptional hospitality of the Troutfly. We were so impressed...
