    About the house Availability

Set in the Rhinns in the north west of Islay, Rockmountain was built in 2005 to the highest standard, with a strong preference for natural and Scottish materials. The house is superbly equipped, and sleeps up to six people. We are developing a large wildlife garden, with deck, picnic and other seating areas.

From the house there is easy access to all the delights of Islay – deserted beaches and rockpools, horse-riding, moorland walking, bird spotting, swimming, craftware and gifts – and of course the distilleries!

Our huge ‘wildlife windows’ provide fantastic views – of birds and wildlife, of the natural environment, and of the enormous sky. Hen Harriers, Buzzards, Chough, Barn Owls, Deer, occasionally Eagles are all on view. Our ruin by the roadside, supported by the RSPB, protects rare birds. Rockmountain overlooks a Site of Special Scientific Interest featured on BBC’s Springwatch in 2007. The views take in the Atlantic and Loch Gorm to the West, Loch Gruinart and Mull to the North, and Jura to the East.

We are 5 minutes’ drive from the village of Bruichladdich. The house has its own car parking area next to a single track tarmac road, and is not overlooked by other houses.
