Welcome to The Trout Fly Guest House in Port Ellen Islay

We are open as of 3rd August 2020 and we’re looking forward to welcoming you back to our home. We are rightly proud of the cleanliness of our rooms, however, we have enhanced our cleaning regime to comply with all government requirements and standards.
We are “ Good to Go “


  • All public areas will be sanitised throughout the day particularly pre and post check in. Bedrooms will be made utilising fresh mattress, pillow and duvet protectors along with linen laundered at 60C.
  • Mounted hand sanitisers are available throughout the building.
  • We intend to stagger both check in times and breakfast times and we can provide details of this and our breakfast menu prior to your stay.
  • We have always tried to be flexible with check in times, however, to ensure your room has time to be cleaned, sanitised and aired we plan on providing check in from 4pm onwards.

In The Trout Fly Guest House we offer you warm Islay hospitality in the centre of Port Ellen, minutes from the ferry terminal and only three miles from our local airport.

We offer 3 twin en-suite rooms as well as 1 double room with private bathroom across the landing. There is also a residents lounge for you to relax in with television and tea/coffee making facilities. Free wifi is available throughout the building.

We are situated close to our local distilleries of Laphroaig, Lagavulin and Ardbeg and also to our local RSPB Reserve and American Memorial Monument both in the Mull of Oa. Port Ellen is a picturesque village surrounded by beautiful beaches and has a working harbour which accommodates ferries, cruise ships, local fishing boats and also a yachting marina.
