Islay House Hotel

Islay House Hotel – One of Scotland’s grandest and most historic country house hotels. Located at the centre of the Queen of the Hebrides, Islay: the Whisky Isle.

Set in 28 acres of Policy gardens and protected woodland overlooking Loch Indaal.  Islay House possesses one of the most naturally beautiful locations in the United Kingdom. From the stunning views across the ornate lawns out to the sea loch to the scenic Bridgend Woods surrounding the House, Islay House offers everything that could be asked of a trip to Scotland.

With nine globally renowned whisky distilleries, Scotland’s best kept golfing secret (The Machrie), some of the best sailing, fishing, shooting and stalking in Britain, as well as a multitude of breath-taking walks all a stone’s throw away, there is plenty to suit every taste on Islay.

Whether you are looking for a peaceful retreat or to enjoy our famous whisky, Islay House provides a luxurious sanctuary from which you can explore the Isle.

The names of each room reflect their unique character, with many retaining period features.
