Perfect stay at Persabus. We went to Islay for the annual whisky festival and stayed again with Donald and Rosemary at their farm cottage. We had a lovely time enjoying their hospitality and daily introductions to the Islay whisky delights! The cottage has everything needed to enjoy a stay on b & b basis, comfortable bed, great shower and exclusive sitting room where we could relax with a “wee dram” or two!
