Bowmore House: Superb B&B on Islay

We stayed at the Bowmore House for 3 nights as part of our Scottish Routs whisky tour of Islay. The hosts Andrew and Alison were great, the food (and whisky) at breakfast were great. Of course, when on a whisky tour one would need a nice hearty breakfast to prepare for the whiskies!  The room was clean and tidy and the bathroom was huge.

Bowmore House - Bed

Very comfortable bed.

Bowmore House - Bathroom

The bathroom is very spacious

The location of the Bowmore House is perfect. It is not far from the city center of Bowmore (if there is such a thing), and about 5 minutes from a very nice pub called the Lochside. Also very nice and not far from the hotel is the restaurant at Harbourside Inn, which is more expensive but also very good.

Bowmore House - Breakfast

Smoked haddock at breakfast was yum!

Our tour covered every other distilleries other than Bowmore and we were away during the day when they can sell alcohol.  The hosts offered to help us pick up some during the day if needed, but warned that if we fail to pay up they’ll keep the whiskies for themselves.

A great stay at a lovely little house. Superb.
