About Yardarm Cottage

A Modern Home in Portnahaven next to the Atlantic Ocean

Yardarm Cottage is brand new to Portnahaven. Our renovations finished in April 2019 and we’re now open for summer! Our spacious, traditional stone cottage is finished to a modern standard and fully equipped to ensure a relaxing time on Islay. With a large kitchen and two lounge areas there is plenty of space to relax, and with three generous ensuites and a small downstairs loo you’ll enjoy privacy whilst sharing with friends and family.


Portnahaven is a special place. Atlantic Islay at its wild best. Standing at our front door you look out over the Atlantic to Ireland.


Our first cozy lounge area has a sofa and lounge chair with fireplace, books, magazines and stereo system.

Nearby Restaurants

An Tigh Seinnse is the local pub round the corner serving excellent meals. Further away restaurants can be found in Port Charlotte at the Port Mor Campsite and the Port Charlotte and Lochindaal Hotels. 

Sunset Tip!

Be sure to take a walk down past the pub to the public footpath on the cliffs – the best place for sunset pix and perfect for a wee dram or a glass of wine.

Neighbouring Village

15 minutes away is the neighbouring village of Port Charlotte with its two pubs, shop and restaurants.

Dining Tip!

The seafood platter from An Tigh Seinnse, the pub around the corner, is an absolute must. Fresh from the boats in the harbour, it’s delicious and portions are very generous. Be sure to order 24 hours in advance.

Nearby Beach

Currie Sands, Portnahaven’s local beach is accessible via a beautiful coastal cliff walk. Spectacular in all weathers.

Nearest Distillery

Bruichladdich distillery is a 20 minute drive away along one of Islay’s most spectacular coastal roads.
