Self Catering Cottages on Islay
Our fabulous self catering cottages on Islay are the perfect getaway! Kilchoman Cottages stand above Kilchoman House and comprise of four, two bedroom cottages and a separate three bedroom cottage. Each provide self-catering accommodation on Islay. The original block was the minister’s former stable and coach house until their conversion to individual holiday cottages. They can be accessed both from the large car park to the front, where there is seating, or from the garden behind. On the lower level, patio doors open towards another seating area with a BBQ and a view over the burn and hills behind. There are large grassy areas to play or relax on and it is completely safe for families of all ages.
Across the field is a cave which was once occupied by our ancestors as various ancient artefacts including an arrow head have been found. Kilchoman Church, built on the site of the ancient Chapel of St Comman, is reputedly home to the grave of McLean of Duart who was killed at the battle of Traigh Ghruineart in 1598.
What is included…
Each individual cottage is named after the beaches of Islay’s west coast meaning you have to visit the beach of the cottage you are staying in! Each has central heating throughout and open fires to create cosy nights in. Initial supplies of coal or peat can be found in a bunker by your back door.
Each two bedroom cottage has a comfortably furnished sitting room with a dining area and kitchen for enjoying a meal together. Upstairs there is a double and twin bedroom. With Wifi, Satellite TV, a DVD Player and a large selection of books and games, you’ll never be stuck for things to do.
The kitchen has a range of appliances to suit your needs including a toaster, cooker, microwave and fridge freezer. Extra freezer space is also available in the Laundry Room. Linen and towels are supplied. A cot and high chair can also be placed in the cottage should you require this, just let us know in advance.
