For romance and special memories we think a turfed-roof cottage set in a secluded spot on a Scottish island hillside fits the bill. An exciting new addition for 2017 are the swanky 'star tubs for two' - chemical free and filled with spring water our double ended outdoor bateaux baths make looking out on unspoilt sunset skies even more romantic.

With a sumptuous sofa to curl up on beside a brightly burning wood stove; fresh white linen and fine spun wool duvets on one of the comfiest beds in the world and you've got the perfect setting for a romantic getaway with that special person.

Our amazing lodges at Coillabus on Islay have been designed with romance in mind and we’ve taken care to offer you all the right ingredients for your Scottish island honeymoon or romantic escape - we've even had our first wedding ceremony at Coillabus.

We know that details large and small will be key to your experience and we’ve taken quite some care with them. You’ll find a fabulous master bedroom ensuite with a curved walk-in shower, double ended bath and warm Caithness slab floor, soft  cotton velour robes and thick and fluffy organic towels, and Scottish soaps and toiletries.

For couples’ getaways the second bedroom can become a quiet spa space for a relaxing massage or bespoke holistic treatment from Eilidh Carmichael our visiting therapist: the perfect unwind to a stress beating honeymoon or relaxing getaway. There’s plenty to do on Islay or you can just spend lazy days together wandering on one of many unspoilt sandy beaches – you might well have it to yourselves - or  walk for miles undisturbed along quiet heather framed cliffside paths. And to make very night a special night in, a range of fabulous chilled meals from an award winning chef lets you dine in in style with no issues about nominating a driver.

Your own sauna with a view adds to the personal spa experience and at the end of the day – well yes, we did mention the star tub...
