“Booked in late 2019 for June 2020. Postponed due C19 Pandemic, but finally managed to travel. More than worth the wait.”
Reviewed 12 June 2021 for a stay in June 2021

Now some 8-9 years since Hester Ross (who’s family have long owned this part of the Oa Peninsula on Islay) these lodges will not dissapoint anyone seeking comfort and luxury in a remote wilderness. Well equipped with sauna two large double bedrooms each with a well appointed bathroom nothing is left to chance.

Our two Terriers, Brandy an Irish and Meg an Airedale loved the location and the fact that the area around the Lodges is livestock fenced ensuring the many sheep, hares, rabbits and cattle are safe from worry from visiting dogs is a bonus.

Our 7 days devoid of other humans in an Island still extremely wary of “strangers” with the ongoing anxieties of the C19 pandemic all too soon passed. We explored Islay and Jura fully, covering almost 500 miles of driving whilst there and miles and miles of hillside and loch walks/hikes.Many places remain closed so we totally self catered.

“Luxury Scottish Isolation ”
Reviewed 28 July 2020 for a stay in July 2020
1
person found this review helpful

A long planned for 50th birthday celebration and it was down to the wire whether the Scottish government would relax lockdown so we were both able to stay in self catering accommodation but also get the ferry. So we made it just days after and a big thank you to Hester for her patience and also Hazel for the virtual welcome. Absolutely 100% no problems. Kintyre Lodge catches the morning sun and everything is of exceptional quality , so much so it can be difficult to leave if there is Scottish liquid sunshine sweeping across the amazing views. Sauna and additional outside morning bath (star gazing) add to the luxury , as do the 3 golden eagles in the valley below. Great, wild location yet easily accessible (4x4 not needed). The Island was still slowly unlocking, so most of the distilleries were closed as were some of the pubs etc. But the best things in life are free, so the beaches and wildlife don’t recognise lockdown so it was truly a full holiday in superb accommodation. Do go and support the island, everyone was very, very welcoming.

“Relaxed and Beautiful”
Reviewed 16 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018
1
person found this review helpful

Excellent accommodation. We stayed 5 nights in the West facing lodge and experienced wonderful sunsets over Glenastle Lochs and the Atlantic. Superb facilities, including a sauna, air source heat pump, and everything you could wish for. Ideally located, but then Islay is not a large island to travel. Highly recommended for anyone wishing to get away from it all.

“Isolated indulgence”
Reviewed 13 February 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Coillabus may take a while to get to, but the reward is big if you want to get away from it all without compromising on comfort: my wife, daughter (1) and I stayed for four nights and very much enjoyed the isolation, weather watching, comfortable beds, panaroma's (also from within the sauna) and area (which offers plenty hiking opportunities and other things to do, including the golden mile of peat starting at Laphroig). We also enjoyed the chilled meals from Taste of Bridgend, which are great value and an easy way to have a tasty dinner on your first night.

A stay in winter had its advantages, but we would also love to experience Coillabus another time in spring or summer, with the wind being less gusty (allowing us to use the stargazing tub) and Islay being switched on a bit more.

“Wonderful Christmas Break ”
Reviewed 31 December 2017 for a stay in December 2017
1
person found this review helpful

Stayed for eight nights over Christmas. The lodge is in a great and very quiet position on the Oa Peninsula. The accommodation is fitted out to a very high standard and the bedrooms are extremely comfortable. During the stay we got to see lots of wildlife (including the eagles) and experience the wonderful Islay scenery. We were so relaxed by the end of the stay that we didn't want to leave - hopefully we will get the opportunity to return in the not too distant future.
