The Lochside is an Islay institution: a privately owned hotel with a bustling restaurant and a lounge that has been recognised as one of the great whisky bars of the world. With 12 newly refurbished ensuite bedrooms available all year, the lochside really is the heart of bowmore.

Now under new management by Neil Morrison (Macgochans-Tobermory) and refurbished in January 2016 by renowned Scottish Designer Ronald MacColl, the Lochside has been transformed back into its glory days with an establishment to suit the service and warm welcome we provide.
