Ballivicar Farm Cottages
Port Ellen, Isle of Islay, Argyll & Bute
Ballivicar Farm offers self catering accommodation that is situated in Port Ellen, Islay in Argyll, Bute & The Islands.
The 3 lovely self catering and well equipped apartments are called The Chougherie, The Hayloft and The Bothy. All apartments have Wi-Fi available. We are a working farm with sheep and 30 horses, 2 of which are Clydesdales. Visitors to the farm include deer, pheasants, birds of prey, owls and the odd hedgehog, geese mostly in winter, hares etc.
The ChougherieThe Chougherie has two bedrooms (one double bed and one twin), lounge/living area, open plan kitchen and separate bathroom.
The HayloftThe Hayloft has one bedroom (twin beds), large living area, open plan kitchen and en suite bathroom. We are happy to accept well behaved dogs. Wi-Fi is available for our guests.
The BothyThe Bothy has one bedroom (twin beds), living area, open plan kitchen and en suite bathroom. Extra beds are available in The Chougherie and The Hayloft by arrangement. Well behaved dogs are welcome. Wi-Fi is available for our guests.
Visiting Port Ellen & Exploring Argyll, Bute & The IslandsThe farm is situated close to but quite separate from Port Ellen, it is within 15 minutes of Islay's principal ferry port, airport and its only golf course. The three most distinctive of Islay's six functioning distilleries are also within easy reach. The sea and empty beaches are, of course, ubiquitous on the island, which is, in many ways, locked in a time-warp (you rarely need to lock your car or your flat).
Wildlife, rare on the mainland, is part of everyday life, barn owls nest in the farm buildings, there are swallows everywhere (and bats), and since nothing is shot on the farm, pheasants, hares, roe deer (and some red) and rabbits abound. Buzzards are commonplace, hen harriers and peregrines are also part of everyday life. In the winter there are geese, Greenland white-fronts and barnacles in large numbers.
History surrounds the farm and island from iron-age forts, standing stones, deserted townships and celtic crosses, all within easy reach. But above all, Islay (and Ballivicar) is a healing place, a quiet, peaceful, un-polluted respite from an overcrowded world, 'remote', but in fact not remote at all, just a well kept secret.
The Isle of Islay offers the visitor a peaceful and relaxing holiday with miles of beautiful beaches, magnificent bays on Islay's Atlantic west coast and stunning views.
