We enjoyed our stay in your very comfortable house with some spectacular views - especially sunrise. Your house is in a great location for visiting distilleries or some of the other sights that Islay offers.

We only wish Anne's place would have been more awful so we could have seen more of Islay - It was so cozy and idyllic it was hard to leave! Traigh Bheag East is a true gem. Be sure to stay an extra day or two just to enjoy the house. Highly recommended!

Anne's home was truly a highlight of our trip to Scotland. Islay was a top destination for me due to many of my favorite whisky distilleries being located there, but it was really Anne's house that made the trip what it was. Her house felt like home, and we were so relaxed there …

The house and the setting were beautiful. Details like a fire in the fireplace simply waiting for the match made us feel welcome. The kitchen had what was needed and the beds were very comfortable. We ended each day by sitting on the private beach and reliving that day's adventu…
