The cottages have opened for their first guests in June 2012. The two cottages have been designed by award- winning architect Stuart Bagshaw of Stornoway very much in the spirit of the island vernacular: traditional black house meets neolithic with a healthy dose of contemporary chic. Each cottage has its own sauna and hand-made hot tub. Reclaimed pitch pine and Caithness slab floors heated by air source technology ensure the buildings look good and feel good inside as well as out. Spacious and interestingly shaped rooms with amazing views make sure that the stylish interiors are no less impressive than the eco-credentials of these amazing buildings.
Islay, the Queen of the Hebrides is a world class destination. It is no wonder that visitors return year after year to enjoy being here: the miles of sandy beaches idyllic coastal villages and iconic whisky distilleries are second to none. Islay is renowned for its superb birdlife and varied flora and fauna.
