We could not have asked for anything else in our warm and welcoming experience with Eleanor and Jim at 40 Pier Road. Everything was well-provided for, and our quarters were comfortable and spotlessly clean. It was so nice to come back everyday to a cozy sofa and fire in our room, which also included a dressing room and spacious bathroom. Breakfast served in the charming kitchen over-looking the harbor were fresh and abundant. Plus we were free to use the kitchen and did so one night when we needed a "night-in" break. Having the ferry so close is an added bonus.
Eleanor and Jim are great examples of the kindness and friendliness extended to visitors on Islay. They are thoughtful and knowledgeable and provide the kind of local information which is invaluable. We had a wonderful visit with them!
