Nice apartment, we visited I slay to tour the distilleries and this is a great place to tour the Island from. It was very clean and our hostess Katherine was very helpful to us with any questions we had about places to visit. Highly recommended.

We felt right at home in this cute apartment. It had everything we needed and a store around the corner. Perfect location to explore the island. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. We meet our host Katherine who was super nice. Don't miss Finlaggen (seat of the Lord of the Isles). Music night at the Port Charlotte Hotel (Wed& Sat), Port Haven, the Dalton Cross and Laphroaig Distillery.

The Sornbank B&B was a lovely experience. The coachman flat was spacious and clean. We didn't need much but we did have access to kitchen and household appliances and dishware. The location is central to Islay and easy to get to and from. Katherine was a very good host, who made sure we had everything we needed and made her availability known.

I had a great stay at Katherine's for the 3 days I was in Islay. It was the perfect central location for our trip touring the distilleries! Everywhere we traveled from Bridgend was no more than 20 minutes away. It's a little difficult to get internet access in this flat, but you can just use the free Wi-Fi down the street at the Bridgend hotel while you have a delicious meal. Also, those traveling from the US, bring an outlet converter since most places have a different type of outlet. Katherine was a very friendly host and I would love to go back to Islay and stay there again!

We had a lovely stay at Katherine's place on Islay. It's a great location on the island as it is somewhat in the middle of everything. The flat itself is very clean and well kept, but our favorite part was opening the back door so we could listen to the little river running outside.

I am already a host and have had a great couple of years using Airbnb.
I live on a Scottish island where the whisky is made.
I enjoy travelling with my family and exploring new places and have met so many people over the past 15yrs it is now my turn to start meeting other hosts.
