Probably the most interesting holiday-let house in the Hebrides, Lagavulin Hall was built in the first years of the 1900’s as a parish church. It is on the South East of Islay in an attractive sheltered position, with views across Surnaig Bay to the ruins of the 14th Century Dunyveg Castle. The building was converted into a house and remains virtually unchanged on the outside. It has been painstakingly restored and redesigned on the inside to provide a comfortable living space, which maintains the original simple style and grand scale of the interior. Islay is one of the most beautiful of the Hebridean islands and is famous among bird watchers and especially whiskey connoisseurs.

There are numerous sandy beaches and opportunities for fishing, kayaking, windsurfing and walking. The Machrie golf course is also a well known feature of Islay and there is a swimming pool in the main town, Bowmore, which is housed in a disused distillery warehouse and heated by surplus heat from Bowmore distillery. There are many sites of historical interest including the famous Kildalton Cross which dates from the 9th Century.More

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
Learn more about our review moderation.

About the neighbourhood
Islay is one of the most beautiful of the Hebridean islands and is famous among bird watchers and especially whiskey connoisseurs. There are whiskey distilleries all over the island and Lagavulin Distillery is only 5 minutes walk from the house. Laphroaig and Ardberg are both within walking distance. Most of the distilleries offer visitor tours, which are very interesting and finish with a taste of the end product. There are numerous sandy beaches and opportunities for fishing, kayaking, windsurfing and walking. The Machrie golf course is also a well known feature of Islay and there is a swimming pool in the main town, Bowmore, which is housed in a disused distillery warehouse and heated by surplus heat from Bowmore distillery.
