Portnahaven is Islay's best kept secret. And the Anchorage is Portnahaven's. This modernised 200 year old 2 storey cottage has views over the bay, to the islands and open sea. Watch the sun set from the conservatory and you'll never want to go home!

Stunning setting, right on the headland overlooking the bay (and the seal colony). Beautiful, quiet and the village of Portnahaven is pretty remote, but the house is 5 minutes' walk from the local pub.

Love music, love cinema, love travel, love snowboarding, love scrabble! My wife and I have just relocated to Arizona, so we let out our Glasgow place through AirBnB when we are not using it (which is most of the time!). Both the Islay cottage and Glasgow apartment are manag…
