Coillabus - an amazing place to stay on Islay

We look forward to welcoming you to our amazing guest lodges on the island of Islay - the Queen of the Scottish Hebrides. Set in a world of their own just a half hour flight from Glasgow or a two hour sail from the Scottish mainland - and just ten minutes from the village of Port Ellen.


We're excited to announce that our popular dine in chef and chilled meals service has resumed.  Buon apetito! Sample menus coming soon.
