Yardarm Cottage is one of Portnahaven’s newest guest accommodations. Our renovations finished in April 2019 and our spacious, traditional stone cottage is now finished to a modern and comfortable standard and is equipped to ensure a relaxing time on Islay. With a large kitchen and two lounge areas there is plenty of space to relax, and with three generous ensuites and a small downstairs loo you'll enjoy privacy whilst sharing with friends and family.

The space
With two lounge spaces and a large kitchen downstairs you'll be spoilt for relaxing space. Our first cozy lounge area has a sofa and lounge chair with fireplace, books, magazines and stereo system. The second lounge area has a large corner sofa, television and several board games for entertainment. The kitchen is a light and airy space, fully equipped with a nespresso machine, microwave, two ovens and other kitchen essentials so guests will feel at home. Our large, reclaimed wood table provides a focal point where everyone can gather round.

Upstairs, three good sized bedrooms, 2 kings and 1 twin are comfortable, warm and cozy, ensuring a great night's sleep. All bathrooms are generous ensuites, 2 with walk in showers and 1 with a fabulous Japanese-style soaking tub large enough for 2 !

Yardarm Cottage is renovated to a high standard and designed with guest comfort in mind. Our welcome basket contains start up essentials such as milk, butter, tea and nespresso pods. There is a shop close by where you can top up on essentials during your stay.

Sorry, unfortunately we don't accept pets. And finally, there is no smoking inside the property.

Guest access
Guests wishing to access the views from the top of the garden must temporarily access via short footpath to the side of the property. Renovation works on the garden will make access available directly from the property, however these renovations are not yet underway so garden access is therefore not included within the rental agreement. Portnahaven has stunning views from pretty much everywhere you go so this slight restriction should not cause you any inconvenience.

Other things to note
During the summer season we have a 7 night minimum stay requirement, however we will consider shorter stays when availability allows. Please don't hesitate to ask us if you have a query!

Location

Portnahaven, Scotland, United Kingdom

Portnahaven is a special place. Atlantic Islay at its wild best. Standing at our front door you look out over the Atlantic to Ireland. Just below you is Portnahaven harbour and its fishing boats. The harbour is sheltered by Orsay Island which features the iconic Rhinns of Islay lighthouse. This is one of the best locations to enjoy our spectacular sunsets. The village itself has a pub and a shop as well as a large resident seal colony. Listen for their calls throughout the day and night. Deer regularly visit the top of our garden.

The seafood platter from An Tigh Seinnse, the pub around the corner, is an absolute must. Fresh from the boats in the harbour, it's delicious and portions are very generous. Be sure to order 24 hours in advance.

Be sure to take a walk down past the pub to the public footpath on the cliffs - the best place for sunset pix and perfect for a wee dram or a glass of wine.

Bruichladdich distillery is a 20 minute drive away along one of Islay's most spectacular costal roads. 15 minutes away is the neighbouring village of Port Charlotte with its two pubs, shop and restaurants.
