From the owner

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 whiskey distilleries all over the island and Lagavulin, Laphroaig and Ardbeg distilleries are all walking distance from the house. 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. There are many sites of historical interest including the famous Kildalton Cross which dates from the 9th Century.
