    "our Guest House by the Loch - Location. Isle of Islay. Location.Bowmore Location.The Inns by the Loch Rooms with a View"....

    Imagine awakening to the sound of the waves lapping gently against the shore, to the sight of the Paps of Jura across Loch Indaal and to salt filled smell of fresh Hebridean air.

    Experience the best of Hebridean tranquillity and wilderness on your doorstep, at your fingertips, without compromising comfort or convenience.

    Enviably situated in the centre of Bowmore, yet literally a step away from the shoreline of Loch Indaal, the Inns by the Loch offers the perfect environment where you can unwind and indulge your natural senses within the luxurious setting of first class accommodation.

    Imagine a calm evening stroll along the gentle lit harbour, where the lights of Bruichladdich twinkle on the horizon, where fishing boats rock with the rhythm of the waves and where breathtaking sunsets melt down behind Bowmore Distillery. And if the wind roars and the waves crash, then enjoy the very same impressive scenes from the warm comfort of your room and conservatory.

    Originally amongst the first settlement buildings within the planned village of Bowmore, The Inns by the Loch has recently been refurbished to a luxurious standard. Fresh, modern styles are combined with traditional character and an element of “ old world colonial charm “, creating a special , harmonious atmosphere. Each en-suite room is stylishly and individually decorated and offer all the comforts and extra little touches you would expect from top class accommodation.

    A full Scottish or Continental breakfast is served within the ambience of the Guest House and as a special service to our guests we offer a simple supper menu again served in our dining room.

    Enjoy the calm serenity of the Conservatory and let the sound of the waves against a sandy and pebble shore work its magic.

    “ tranquillity o’ the heart and mind begins and ends with one’s surroundings “
