We began our tour of Scotland on Islay and decided to book a room at the Monachs based largely on the reviews below. We were most certainly not left dissapointed! From the moment we arrived until the last minute we were there we were made to feel like this was a home away fom home. As hosts, Ronnie and Mari were always on hand to ensure our Islay experience was a rich one, from the welcome whisky that greeted our arrival to the hearty breakfasts we started each day with. The rooms were spacious and impeccably designed, with comfortable beds, amazing views and an eclectic collection of antique furniture. There's not much more to say other than this: a trip to Islay would not be complete without a stay at the Monachs!
