Arrived late at night , no problem , owner extremely helpful, room tidy & clean, great breakfast, good discussion with other guests in dining room, ideal for Kennacraig ferry, which was reason for booking there! Five minutes away.

I stayed there for two nights with my friends while touring around Scotland. The rooms were very nice, comfortable beds, lots of amenities. Breakfast were very good too. The lady that takes care of this place (shame I never asked for her name) was absolutely lovely and very helpful. We arrived quite late and felt really sorry the she had...

Stayed 2 nights on trip to Islay. Very clean and pleasant accommodation at good price, very close to ferry terminal. Helpful host Graham was full of useful information and I cannot recommend this Bluebell Cottage highly enough. The trip to the Laphroig Distillery was a 60th birthday treat and the B&B accommodation could have spoilt a great trip, no danger...

We stayed here for the evening before catching the ferry to Islay. The B&B is very close to the ferry terminal so very convenient. The closest place to have a good meal is Tarbert which is not too far. We had an excellent meal there. Blue Bells is immaculate and the host is most welcoming. We would not hesitate to...

Bluebell Cottage was the perfect place for us to stay for touring the Kintyre Peninsula of Scotland. Our room was large and well-equipped, with a very large shower (not always found in B&Bs). Graham took very good care of us and answered lots of my questions. When he did not know an answer, he researched on the computer and gave...

Upon arrival we were greeted warmly by Graham, who turned out to be a most relaxed, helpful and welcoming host. Staying at the Bluebell Cottage is like staying at a friend’s home, where you come and go as you please. For me, an important part of staying at a B and B is the host and his/her ability to interact...

Arrived mid evening for a 7am ferry crossing to Islay the following morning. Friendly welcome. Warm and comfortable room, with clean en suite shower room. Plenty of hot water and good towels. Great to have option to not pay extra for breakfast, as we wanted to have breakfast on the ferry (£60 room only for 2, £70 for bed and...

A lovely greeting on arrival, followed by introduction to our room for the night, spacious well maintained and immaculately clean. As is all of the property. A super breakfast, of fruits, cereals, yogurt and toast, tea coffee etc, and so nicely presented. I would highly recommend this B&B This is in an ideal location for the Islay Ferry terminal less...

We stayed at Bluebell Cottage the night before we took the ferry to Islay. It was the best decision we made. The room was very nicely decorated and the bed very comfortable. The en suite was lovely and clean. There was a flat screen television and coffee and tea facilities in the room. The breakfast was continental with a great...

We - two guys from Ukraine - were not brave enough to drive on another side of the road by ourselves, so we used public transport to travel to The Islay. The bus dropped us at the bus stop in the middle of nowhere. It was raining, the night was dart and we felt like two blind kittens looking at...
