With two double and two single bedrooms, and two bathrooms, Drumlanrig accommodates up to six people in comfort.  

The living spaces feature beamed ceilings, a farmhouse style kitchen and a comfortable lounge with a log-burning stove.  A glazed porch, with seating, leads to a secluded terrace with outdoor seating and table.  All have beautiful, uninterrupted views south and west over Loch Gorm towards Saligo Bay and Kilchoman; the sunsets are stunning.  


There's an  upstairs playroom with cupboards full of toys and games and plenty of space for running around in the fenced garden to the south and west of the house.   

"So many lovely homely touches and very cosy.   Your [wood] stove is excellent" - LB, Feb 2018

"We found the house to be very comfortable and ideal for a family of five . . . Beautiful sunsets aplenty." - DS, July 2017

  • The self catering facilities include: a range-style cooker with gas oven and hob, fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, high chair, microwave, bread-maker, toaster, kettle and teapot.


  •  The water comes from the deep underground well shared with our neighbours;  purified with  UV rather than chlorine, it is crystal clear and delicious (but in any case tested regularly).

  • With oil-fired central heating and double glazing, the house is very warm, but the wood-burning stove adds a cosy ambience on cool evenings.  The log shed is well stocked.

  • The television has satellite freeview channels and a DVD player.   A bluetooth receiver allows you to play your own music from your phones or tablets.  You'll find a selection of books about Islay and there are board games,  toys and books for children.         The wifi is via mobile,  but adequate for everyday use.   Similarly, in common with many rural Islay houses,  mobile coverage may be patchy (although EE and BT Mobile are good) and you may not get a signal indoors.  There is no longer a  landline.

  • There is a bathroom with over-bath shower and a small en suite shower room; each has a toilet.

  • Two of the bedrooms - the ensuite double bedroom and a single bedroom - are downstairs, but with small steps to the en suite bedroom and also to the family bathroom.  Upstairs, the double bedroom, single bedroom and playroom have 'coombed' ceilings, so they are partly sloping and have velux windows.

  • Drumlanrig shares a driveway, parking and turning space with a small neighbouring cottage; there is room for you to park two cars here.   The house is reached via a stony track (pictured) shared by the seven other houses that comprise Carnduncan.    

  • A large shed provides plenty of space for bicycles, motorbikes and sporting equipment.​         Please note:  We have a 'no smoking' policy in the house.
