Welcome To Loch Gruinart House Self-Catering Islay
Loch Gruinart House Self-Catering Islay is based on the North of Islay at the head of Loch Gruinart. It is a must for those who love watching birdlife as it sits within the boundaries of the RSPB Loch Gruinart Nature Reserve.
The property was formerly a Post Office which has since been converted into holiday accommodation. There is a 1 bedroom self catering studio for let which is perfect for couples wanting a getaway. If you are part of a larger party, the rest of the accommodation is a bed and breakfast so can also accommodate guests.
This location is perfect for those who like to get away from modern living and enjoy total tranquillity. Given its remote location there is quiet, no traffic and plenty of wildlife and gorgeous scenery. It is also a perfect base from which to explore the rest of the island including all the world famous whisky distilleries.
The self-catering studio is on the ground floor and accommodates two people. It comprises a kitchen/living room with a double bedroom and an en-suite shower room. The studio can be rented on a weekly basis (Saturday – Saturday) all year round with check in from 3pm on day of arrival and check out by 10am on day of departure.
Heated and cosy this is the perfect retreat for couples.
Short breaks may also be available in low season.
