Holiday home on Islay

A’Chroit (the Croft)

Enjoy the beauty of Islay

This traditional self-catering accommodation situated in the village of Port Ellen, sleeps up to 5 comfortably, and is the perfect base to enjoy the beauty and tranquility of Scotland’s whisky island, Islay.

Just 200m from the pier in Port Ellen, with near-by local beaches, shops, restaurants, marina, transport links, and 3 distilleries – you know the ones 🙂 – and all within walking distance. 

An ideal location for walkers, cyclists, canoe/kayakers, bird watchers, whisky trailers, beach combers, and those just looking to relax and enjoy the sea air, and great outdoors (including the newly opened 18 hole Championship links golf course at the Machrie).


We’ve been up and running successfully now for 6 seasons, and have had great feedback and many returning visitors (now friends).

We take great pleasure in offering you a very personal service from booking, welcome, island information, and anything you require during your stay.

Hopefully you will find everything you need on the website, and the great value price is agreeable.

If there’s anything else you need know – please feel free to contact me, Kenny, on 07917 178113

Thank you
