Ladeside Cottage is in School Street in Bowmore which is the main village and in the centre of the island . Whether you arrive at Port Ellen or Port Askaig (or even by air) it is approximately 15 minutes drive to Bowmore. School Street runs up from the main square of the village, past the Bowmore Distillery to the Islay High School. Ladeside is on the left hand side as you go up the slope ,about 30 metres past the distillery gates. There is a small slate sign on the left side of the door with the cottage name. You are welcome to park (no charges thankfully in Islay ... yet!) outside and usually there will be a space in front of the cottage or very close by.
The cottage will be available from 4 pm and check out is by 10am. There is a key safe for self check in.
Linen and towels are provided. If you need to use sofa beds then bedding is easily located .
(See Red Folder in kitchen for information). The Red Folder in the kitchen/dining area is a users guide to the cottage containing instructions and manuals for all appliances and equipment and some tips for things to do and places to visit.

In the unlikely event that any guest develops symptoms of Covid 19, they must follow government guidance as detailed at www.gov.uk/coronavirus and www. nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-Covid-19. They must immediately call 119 to book a test and notify me. If the test is positive, they would not be able to use public transport so should call 111 for further advice.
