Welcome to An Conusg Self Catering Cottage

An Conusg (Gaelic for Gorse) is a recently renovated bungalow situated on the beautiful West coast of Islay. Located at Ballinaby Farm, it is ideally placed to discover the stunning beaches of Kilchoman, Saligo and Sanaigmore. Set away from the main road and up a short farm track, the house has outstanding views over Loch Gorm . It is surrounded by fields where our sheep and cattle graze and with a large garden area is the perfect place to relax, unwind and watch the world go by on 'Islay time'.

Islay's newest distillery, Kilchoman is a short drive away along a picturesque road where you are more likely to encounter bird and wildlife than other vehicles. The quiet roads surrounding the farm are ideal for any cyclists who would like to take advantage of seeing such beautiful countryside at a much slower pace of life.

The bungalow has oil central heating for those chillier Winter months and with plenty of living space can sleep six people comfortably. The accommodation consists of two double bedrooms both of which sleep two people and one twin room with bunk beds that sleeps two. A large kitchen area provides ample space for cooking, catering and entertaining, whilst the living room with its South facing windows has outstanding views over Loch Gorm. In additon to comfortable leather seating, it has a flatscreen TV, DVD player and Freesat TV. Books, games and DVD's are also provided for your use.

There is a family bathroom with a bath and separate shower cubicle. The spacious Kitchen/Diner has a Dishwasher, Tumble Dryer, Washing Machine, Fridge, Freezer, Gas Cooker, oven and tea and coffee making facilities.

There is also an additional separate games room that has a TV, games console, selection of games and a sofa bed that converts into a large single bed if required. This is an ideal space for children or adults to chill out in if the weather is not quite good enough for exploring the island.

A large private patio area with barbecue and seating is at the rear of the house and is a nice area to watch the sun setting over Saligo whilst planning your next few days adventures.

The cottage has an enclosed garden which is suitable for children and there is parking space for three cars.



Linen is provided and for stays of two weeks or more fresh linen will be supplied every Saturday. Towels are also provided but please bring your own beach towels.

Thank you for taking the time to look at our web-site. Being local 'Ileachs', we love Islay and would be delighted to welcome you to our cottage, where we hope you will enjoy your time with us and that a little bit of Islay's 'magic' will stay with you; even once your holiday is long past.
