About Us

A Modern B&B with bespoke rooms overlooking Kilnaughton Bay, Port Ellen, Islay

Set in the beautiful scenery of Port Ellen in the ‘Queen of the Hebrides’ Islay. Overlooking Kilnaughton Bay, this traditional white-fronted hotel is a 2-minute walk from the Port Ellen Ferry Terminal. The BB&B can be seen from the ferry on arrival at Port Ellen and offers a wonderful view over Mull of Oa, enhanced with some breathtaking sunsets. Islay boasts excellent hill and coastal walks and opportunities for sea and loch fishing. Admire its outstanding landscapes, superb beaches, and of course its unique malt whiskies!

Opening Hours – Early ’til Midnight!


We appreciate we are all getting back to normal and things are beginning to resemble life before Covid. However, as a business, we are still under strict legislation to ensure everyone’s health and safety is protected whilst on our premises.  We continue to take all the necessary precautions for our staff and customers.

The Vaccine Certification checks requirement became law on 1st October.  This would mean that, as an establishment, we require to check everyone’s vaccine passport if:

  1. Alcohol is served at any time between midnight and 5 am;
  2. There is a dancefloor or other space which is regularly used for dancing; and
  3. Live or recorded music which customers normally dance to is played

Enforcement action may be taken against premises that do not fully comply with the new legislation.

The practicalities of implementing this legislation would be a logistical nightmare for a small business like ours and in the circumstances, we will no longer sell alcohol past midnight.

Finally, to those of you who have helped us comply with the rules – wear masks when moving around and happily put them on when reminded, WE THANK YOU!
