An Sabhal Cottage, Isle of Islay

An Sabhal Cottage, Isle of Islay – Originally the ‘minister’s steadings’, comprising stables, threshing barn etc. It has been developed to offer every modern comfort in the exceptional rural and wildlife environment of south west Islay. The self catering cottages are situated midway between the twin picturesque fishing villages of Portnahaven and Port Wemyss on the Isle of Islay.

Currently we only let out the cottage on the Portnahaven side, this might however change in the near future.

There are excellent views from the upstairs lounges to farmland to the rear. Also, exceptional views across to the Rhinns lighthouse and the Donegal coast in Ireland from the front.

Portnahaven village has a small beach at the end of the harbour which is ideal for children to play, and there are plenty of seals frequenting the rocks around the bay. There is also a Post Office, pub and convenience store.

For those who enjoy the outdoor life, there are many excellent walks to be had both in the surrounding area and on land owned by the proprietors. It is possible to view Islay’s wildlife and birdlife, including such rarities as the chough.


An Sabhal Cottage is ideally situated near the single track road to Port Charlotte between Port Wemyss and Portnahaven. The views both to the front and back are amazing. There are various options for beautiful walks in all seasons.

An Sabhal Cottages were originally let out as two cottages. At this moment one of the cottages, the one on the east-end, has been let out as a long term let to a single person. An Sabhal cottage is the cottage on the right in the above photo.

The three bedrooms, sleeping up to six persons, are on the ground floor, while there is a large lounge on the upper floor.

The fully fitted kitchen with beautiful views, 2 bathrooms (one with shower and one with bath), are to the rear of the building.

The upstairs lounge is comfortably furnished and has a flat screen television and DVD player. There is central heating and WiFi throughout the cottage.
