Full description

Islay House is one of Scotland's most magnificent mansion houses and sits in 28 acres of mature grounds with a superb outlook down Loch Indaal and out to sea. EPC Rating F

The building of Islay House for Sir Hugh Campbell of Cawdor began in 1677 during the reign of Charles II.

A number of alterations and additions were made to the house in the 1730s, when the gable-fronted north wing was added, and again in the 1760s, when matching octagonal staircases were added to the north and south wings, along with the main front entrance. In 1841, Scotland's prolific architect William Playfair, created substantial sandstone service buildings in the Scotts Baronial style with extensive kitchen space, stores and staff quarters.

The present day house is substantial and impressive yet has a practical layout for everyday living. The principal rooms are in the central part of the house with the former servants' accommodation in the north east wing. Special features include beautiful curving staircases at either end of the central section, an impressive reception hall and well- proportioned reception rooms.

Islay is the most southerly of the Hebridean islands off the west coast of Scotland and is famous for a number of things: perhaps primarily for its excellent malt whiskies and for the world famous Machrie Golf Course.
