Getting around Islay

A regular bus service serving both Port Ellen and Port Askaig as well as Bowmore stops just a few steps from Orsay House. This enables you to visit 6 of the islands distilleries without driving, but please note that the bus service does not operate on Sundays. We can help arrange taxis to get you around the island, enabling you to visit our many distilleries without worrying about who will drive!

The Pub (An Tigh Seinnse)

The pub has now reopened under new owners and you are able to enjoy local beers and whiskies as well as freshly prepared food in a traditional pub setting.
Whilst the pub is only three doors down the road, generally the only noise and disturbance will be the sound of the seals singing or the waves crashing.
