Getting Here

Fairy Hill Cottage is located at Kildalton on the South East part of the Island.

The Isle of Islay has an airport with regular flights from Glasgow international airport. There are two ferry terminals at Port Askaig and Port Ellen (Port Ellen being 6 miles from the cottage) with ferries departing from Kennicraig on the mainland to Islay.

Travelling to the cottage from the village of Port Ellen, which is also the local ferry port, you will pass Laphroaig Distillery, Lagavulin Distillery and Ardbeg Distillery. Ardbeg is in walking distance and there is now a footpath from Ardbeg distillery to Lagavulin, Laphroaig and onto the village of Port Ellen.

It is important to note that Fairy Hill Cottage is in a remote location and the nearest bus stop is at Ardbeg which is 2.6 miles away. There is a car rental service on the island, bicycle rentals, as well as local buses and taxi services. The distillery also runs buses from Port Ellen for their tours.

Fairy Hill Cottage has private parking and we would be happy to help you organise transport for your stay.
