The Old Schoolroom is the perfect place to relax and get away from it all. Situated on the Hebridean isle of Islay you will be well placed for exploring Islay, Jura and Colonsay.
Leave the mainland stresses and strains behind. Although off the beaten track Islay is easy to get to, with daily ferry crossings and flights (from Glasgow International Airport).

Moin--a-choire is a Victorian Schoolmasters house (our family home) with The Old Schoolroom being just that - the schoolroom! We have a relaxed and friendly outlook on life and invite you to come and enjoy a simpler way of life. With it's own driveway and garden The Old Schoolroom is not overlooked and is private from our home.
Islay is renowned for its wildlife and whisky. The Old Schoolroom is the perfect place to unwind after a hard day relaxing! The geese are getting ready to fly away for the summer, daffodils are making an appearance with the snowdrops, and it won't be too long before the swallows return. Barn owls and Hen Harriers hunt across the back of The Old Schoolroom, and at the other end of the scale wrens are frequent visitors too! Deer can often be seen in the garden and surrounding fields.
Enjoy the slower pace of life and experience the unique atmosphere of Islay.
