A PLACE OF PERFECT HARMONY
Bowmore Distillery Cottages encapsulate Islay at its beautiful, peaceful, traditional best. A Stay with us at Bowmore Distillery offers the chance to stay at the heart of one of Scotland's oldest distilleries.
Our cottages are all beautifully renovated to 4 Star Visit Scotland standard; all are located within or beside the distillery complex, and our guests are invited to join us for a complimentary distillery tour, to savour a dram, and to simply relax.
Upon arrival guests will also find a bottle of 12 year old Bowmore waiting for you. Please enjoy with our compliments. As part of your stay with us our guests are entitled to a discount at Machrie Golf Links.
So welcome, or as we also say around here, fàilte!
Mashman's Cottage Accommodation
Attached to Maltman’s Cottage, Mashman’s Cottage allows you to experience the magic of being in close quarters to Islay’s oldest distillery. The word ‘cosy’ may just have been created especially for Mashman’s Cottage – a place to retreat to with a loved one or very good friend!
Pour a dram, stand beside Loch Indaal and watch the sun set on the horizon. Wake up when the sun rises and pop next door to the Mactaggart Leisure Centre swimming pool.
1 twin bedroom, kitchen, lounge, bathroom and patio area with garden
Mashman's Cottage Facilities
Of course, nobody knows more about our whiskies than those who make them, so our bespoke Craftsmen's Tours are revealing as well as enjoyable.
But you don't have to take our word for it - as The Malt Advocate put it: "There is no better tour - comprehensive, visually arresting, and well-planned, delivered with wit and nuggets of local knowledge - one gets the feeling that the tour has been specifically tailored just for you.
A final treat is nosing the 'angels share' in the traditional warehouse - little wonder that the Queen has had a cask here since 1980."
In between, it's been ruled - not always peacefully - by the Kings of Norway and Scotland, not to mention various clans (most notably the Campbells of Cawdor and then the Campbells of Shawfield). Today, Islay is a tranquil place. The ghosts of battles fought long ago been put to rest.
With a population of approximately 3,000, it is a place with a strong community. Farming, fishing and, of course, whisky are the main sources of employment for the islanders (known as Ileachs).
From the breathtaking nature to the welcoming locals, Islay is definitely well worth a visit.
Islay malts are renowned for their peaty smokiness and Bowmore is no exception. We carefully smoke our malt in a peat-fired kiln, just as our ancestors did over 200 years ago.
The single malt created here by generation after generation of Bowmore craftsmen has long been regarded as one of the finest in the world.
A stay with us at Bowmore Distillery Cottages offers the chance to share in that fine tradition - to reflect on the heritage of these ancient practices in beautifully renovated cottages, located at the centre of a charming village on a beautiful Hebridean island.
