Laphroaig View guest house was built in 2010 and is situated on a working farm, just outside Port Ellen on the south coast of Islay. Only minutes along the road are the world famous Laphroaig, Lagavulin and Ardbeg distilleries, making this the perfect base for lovers of Islay's most peated drams. Also to the north and west are Bowmore, Bruichladdich, Kilchoman, Caol Ila, Bunnahabhain and Ardnahoe. The Isle of Jura is only a 5 minute ferry ride from Port Askaig and the Jura distillery is 7 miles by road from the ferry port.

All our water, including all baths and showers, is supplied from our own 100% natural crystal clear spring water well. The bore well source is deep in the quartzite and granite rocks, then naturally filtered and finally passed through our state of the art UV system. The result is wonderful natural spring water as pure as you can get! Not only will you taste the difference but you will actually FEEL the difference.
A full cooked Scottish breakfast is available and included in your price. Packed lunches and evening meals are also available on request. Special diets can also be catered for.
