Nestled on the shore of Loch Indaal in the heart of Bowmore, The Lochside is an Islay institution which has been warmly welcoming locals and visitors since 1884. Retaining its historic charm, this independently-owned inn now boasts 12 recently-refurbished cosy guest rooms, a bustling bar and a stunning restaurant and outdoor terrace overlooking Bowmore’s picturesque harbour and Loch Indaal.

Of course, Islay is known for its whisky distilleries but there is so much more to see and do on Islay, and The Lochside’s location in Bowmore makes it the ideal base for exploring all this beautiful island has to offer. And after an action-packed day there’s no better place to relax and unwind than The Lochside – a true home from home!
