Our architect designed turf-roofed guest cottages set in their own private space are in an extraordinary setting on the Isle of Islay. Whether you are looking for a luxury self-catering holiday with impressive green credentials, a romantic retreat, or a secluded, inspiring place for a creative getaway, our beautifully crafted buildings promise you a quite amazing place to stay on Islay.
With 5 star and Green Gold ratings, Coillabus Lodges on Islay – Scotland’s whisky isle – let you have the comfort of a top hotel in an extraordinary setting– but with all the freedom, privacy and peace and quiet you could wish for in a get away from it all break. The stylish Scottish eco-chic interiors with heated Caithness stone floors and a woodburner stove mean the stone clad turf-roofed lodges look good and feel good inside and out – and you will too. Our bespoke chef service means you can dine in style and chilled home cooked meals are available to order as are holistic therapies.
Islay, the Queen of the Hebrides really is a World Class destination. It is no wonder that visitors return as friends year after year to enjoy being here: our miles of sandy beaches, idyllic coastal villages and iconic whisky distilleries are second to none. Islay is renowned for its superb birdlife and varied flora and fauna. Our resident Golden Eagles are regularly spotted from the lodges together with the family of rare chough. The Lords of the Isles chose Finlaggan as their ancient seat and the intact Celtic cross at Kildalton gives a hint of our spiritual heritage. Award winning restaurants, watersports, the championship golf course at Machrie, pony trekking, sea safaris, kayaking, wildlife tours, fly fishing and craftshops all add to Islay's portfolio of attractions. But most of all Islay is a place to unwind, regenerate body and soul, take a walk, breathe the heather- fresh air and shift life back into perspective as you enjoy the views and engage with her greatest asset the people themselves.
There are regular Calmac car ferry crossings to Kennacraig on the Scottish Mainland with good public transport links. Twice daily Loganair flights from Glasgow mean Islay is just half an hour away.

Each guest cottage sleeps up to four in two double or twin bedrooms with ensuite walk-in showers and baths. Exclusive use of both cottages provides luxury accommodation for up to eight people. You'll find yourself in a haven of comfort and style at Coillabus. You’ll sleep well in Hypnos beds made up with fair trade organic linen, platinum wool duvets and organic goose down pillows. Soft furnishings from the iconic Islay Woollen Mill (who kitted out Mel Gibson in Braveheart) add the finishing touches to the comfortable, stylish rooms. And should you ever be able to avert your gaze from the long, amazing and ever changing views from the curved gallery window- you can enjoy original art from Scottish artist, Roseanne Barr’s Lands of Escape series.
The turfed-roof buildings are built by Island and Argyll craftsmen using local stone and appear to flow out of the landscape: all in perfect harmony with their surroundings. The area is renowned for unspoilt scenery, birdlife and flora and the Lodges command panoramic views across the island to Kintyre and Ireland.
Coillabus is the perfect base for a honeymoon or romantic break, family holidays or getaways with friends. The lodges sleep four in great comfort in two bedrooms each ensuite with double ended bath and walk-in shower. Both lodges can be booked together for that special big birthday celebration or family holiday – or even a wee wedding. Coillabus offers a flexible, luxurious alternative to hotel accommodation right down to the food. As well as the well-equipped kitchen, our chef service lets you dine in style or you can order in chilled home -cooked meals. Chef Debby’s legendary fish pies make a perfect welcome supper. An exciting range of holistic therapies can also be enjoyed.
