The picturesque village of Port Charlotte, on Islay, is home to three holiday apartments. Ideal for couples and families alike, the properties are set in the building that was once the village school and then the village hall. Originally built in 1830, it has been sympathetically restored and transformed to provide luxurious accommodation.
Islay is well-known as the Queen of the Hebrides and Port Charlotte typifies this. It's the perfect base for exploring and the apartments are only a few minutes walk from a sandy beach, museum, wildlife centre and play park.
Each apartment includes the following as standard:
Saligo - Ideal for a large family, group of friends or business colleagues. Includes three double rooms and one twin, a galleried landing, and a living space which utilises the full height of the hall.
Kilchoman - Open plan apartment split over levels, perfect for a single occupancy or a couple.
Ardnave - Sleeps eight people in two double and two twin rooms. Features a lower and upper floor, and a galleried bedroom overlooking the lounge.
To the rear of the building is an enclosed garden with outdoor tables, seating and umbrellas.
Bed linen and towels are provided. Travel cots and highchairs are also available for young children at no extra cost.
Please contact for availability.
