We made a detour on our trip through Scotland to visit Laphroaig Distillery on Islay. After some difficulty with the ferry (don't trust the GPS!), we made the late afternoon sailing to Port Ellen. The Oystercatcher is no more than a five minute walk from the ferry terminal. Lynn was understanding of our change in travel plans. She even walked down the block (instead of just calling ahead) and made us a reservation at the Islay Hotel's restaurant while we changed our clothes. The view from the room was incredible. It was not large, but we did not expect it to be.

Lynn came in at the last minute after our previous accommodation fell through. The room was warm. Beds were comfy and had awesome facilities. Stones throw from Port Ellen's harbour and ferry port. Breakfasts were second to none. Recommend as a quiet place to get away from the rush of the mainland.

My partner and I had a great two night stay in at the Oystercatcher: friendly host, nice room, amazing and enormous breakfast! Our room had a lovely view of the harbour. The Islay Hotel, just along the road, was good for dinner & whisky, and had live music on both Fri and Sat nights.

Fantastic stay at the Oystercatcher. Lynn is so welcoming and makes you feel so at home straight away. Our room was bright, comfortable and spotless with everything that you could need from tea/coffee making facilities to a hairdryer. The breakfast was delicious and as other reviewers have noted filled you up so that there was no need for lunch!! Islay hospitality at its best - cannot recommend highly enough.

The Oystercatcher was an absolutely brilliant B&B. The owner, Lynn, was friendly without being intrusive and helpful without being pushy. We were entirely relaxed throughout our stay. I've never seen such a huge choice of delicious breakfasts at a B&B or hotel, all cooked freshly to order. We tried several different options and all were very tasty. When Lynn discovered we liked seafood she offered to get us a very reasonably priced fresh seafood platter delivered the same evening, which we were able to tuck into in the breakfast room, using the fridge in the kitchen to chill our own wine. She even brought her tablet in with her spotify account to let us use her speakers! She then suggested we buy our own oysters from a farm on the island and leant us the utensils to have an oyster picnic on the beach. I cannot speak highly enough of her hospitality, which went above and beyond what you might expect of a B&B owner, without her ever verging on being intrusive. The B&B is clean and perfectly placed for arrivals off the ferry. Don't be put off by guide book reviews of Port Ellen, it has no less happening than any of the other villages on the island (a couple of restaurants, pubs and small grocery stores) and is walking distance to 3 of the distilleries on the island. We stayed for 3 nights, which was plenty for us to see most of Islay. If you're not interested in whisky then there isn't too much happening on the island, and eating out is relatively expensive, but we had a lovely time, helped by the perfect weather.
