For a really relaxing stay on Islay, (we are no longer a working farm,) close to many places of interest our self catering unit sleeps 4/5 comfortably. Carraig Fhada Farm is by the Port Ellen Lighthouse; has incredible views over the bay to Port Ellen and also over the Atlantic to the Mull of Kintyre and Ireland.
The lighthouse is an unusual square shape and was erected in 1832 as a memorial to the Lady Eleanor Campbell by her husband, Walter Frederick Campbell. Don’t worry, there is no sweeping light or foghorn to keep you awake, just a brief glow for half a second every three seconds.
There is a small sandy beach in front of the house and just a few minutes walk away over the farmland is the beautiful beach known as “The Singing Sands.” With the chance to see Otters, Seals, Wildfowl and occasionally Dolphins or Feral Goats there is much to interest nature lovers.
