Recently renovated Gortanachuirn is a cosy 2 bedroom farm cottage. Located on our small farm outside the village of Bruichladdich it has stunning views over Lochindaal, with Ireland and the Mull of Kintyre all easily seen in the distance.

Surrounded by our cows and sheep it is the perfect spot to relax and settle into ‘Islay time’.

The cottage is in a quiet location With no near neighbours. It is situated 600m up a gravel track ( see images).

The space
The cottage has undergone a full renovation and now consists of 2 en-suite bedrooms that can be configured to either Super King Size beds or two single beds. It can sleep four people comfortably.
Each bedroom has a wall mounted television that comes complete with Netflix.

The Bedrooms are located on
the second floor up a small staircase.

The kitchen area has an extendable oak table, hob cooker with oven, built in microwave, dishwasher, toaster and tea and coffee making facilities as well as an ice making fridge/freezer.

The cosy living room has comfortable seating. With a wood burning stove ( logs supplied free of charge). Full sky TV package with movies, sports and Netflix.

The cottage is heated throughout by oil fired heating.

A separate utility room houses a washing machine, tumble dryer and a small toilet

A small front porch leads out onto a wrap around deck with outside seating and a small walled garden.

The fields surrounding the cottage are filled with wildlife. In addition to our sheep and cattle that graze the farm. It is also home to a family of Chough, Hen Harriers, Hare, Deer, Owls, not to mention the migrating Corncrakes and numerous small birds that take advantage of the peace and quiet.

If you are looking for a quiet space to relax, unwind, get away from it all but also want to be close enough to the hustle and bustle of island life, Gortanachuirn is ideally situated to allow that to happen.

The beautiful views from the garden make it a fantastic place for relaxing and settling into ‘Islay Time’ while its proximity to Bruichladdich means a good whisky ( or Gin) is never very far away.

Please note that the house is located at the end of a gravel farm track and surfaces can be quite uneven. Care must be taken when driving on it especially during the wetter winter months.
