Welcome to Ballivicar Farm Apartments

Ballivicar farm is a small family farm, with sheep and horses (chickens, dogs, cats and so on), run on traditional, environmentally friendly lines. We offer, attached to the farm house, three lovely self catering and well equipped apartments called The Chougherie, The Hayloft and The Bothy. All apartments have WiFi available.

The farm is situated close to but quite separate from Port Ellen, it is within 15 minutes of Islay’s principal ferry port, airport and its only golf course. The three most distinctive of Islay’s nine functioning distilleries are also within easy reach. The sea and empty beaches are, of course, ubiquitous on the island, which is, in many ways, locked in a time-warp.

Booking & Availability

Each Apartment can be booked online. The online availability calendar and booking system can be found on each of the three Apartment pages below. We are looking forward to hearing from you.
