Description from owner

Description

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

There are many sites of historical interest including the famous Kildalton Cross which dates from the 9th Century.

Location description from owner

The Scotland region

There are many islands off the west coast of Scotland and Islay is the most southerly. The climate is mild, although can be wet and windy.

Islay is also close to the Island of Jura, which is very wild and remote and well worth a day trip.

There are many sites of historical interest including the famous Kildalton Cross which dates from the 9th Century.

Islay

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.

“Beautiful house in a wonderful setting”

Reviewed 29 Nov 2011

The house was warm and wecoming for our party of 3. The main dining room could house many more and had a piano with great acoustics. We were within easy walking distance of 3 distillaries, (Ardbeg had an excellent restaurant, Lagavullan had excellent whisky). The sea was a few minutes away on foot. We had lots of country walks and explored much of Islay, though there is still lots more to see. We loved Islay! The house retained the original features of the church. The step up to the kitchen might make it difficut for people with disabilities, but 2 of the bedrooms are on the groundfloor, and we found it excellent in every way.

“Utterly gorgeous and completely unique”

Reviewed 15 Nov 2011

We arrived in May to find this stunning converted church surrounded by a thick carpet of bluebells and with a deer roaming around the garden. It has three very comfortable bedrooms sporting lovely furniture (4 poster!) and original period features throughout. There's a huge hall for entertaining and a snug living room for cosying up in the evenings. The location is perfect, right by the sea which was a wonderful sight from the breakfast table every morning and it's just a a short walk from the distilleries. Ardbeg distillery is just up the road and it offers a delicious lunch with a menu that changes daily and feaures locally sourced produce. I had a fantastic family holiday here with three generations of my family and we all fell in love with this unique holiday let. I couldn't recommend it enough.

“cosy church near some of the greatest distilleries”

For the third time I have stayed at Lagavulin Hall an it always impresses when you enter the church We will be back next year

“An original place to stay, a great location to explore the island.”

Reviewed 3 Nov 2011

Lagavulin hall is a great place to stay. Here you can fully enjoy the tranquility of the island and enjoy the cosy atmosphere of living in a little church. I think it is the best location on Islay. Only one request: we would advise to renew the mattresses, they had their best time already some time behind them. On Islay, we loved the phenomenal views and the beautiful nature. We also enjoyed our visits to the single malt distilleries and their hospitality. Islay has a place in our hearts!

“Breath taking”

Reviewed 30 Oct 2011

We booked this particular holiday home because it had been recommended to us and it is in a prime location; out of the village but near enough for cycling and walking. It is near beaches, beautiful walks and not to mention world famous distilleries :-) The accommodation itself is outstanding and has a very relaxing atmosphere about it which my family particularily enjoy. You can sit out of the front of the property and watch the boats go by at the bay in front! My family will definately try to visit every year for a bit of tranquility and I would advise others to do the same! Peace perfect peace sums it up.
