Welcome to Callumkill, an estate situated at the South Eastern corner of the Isle of Islay, the southern-most isle of the Inner Hebrides. Callumkill Farmhouse is set high on a ridge with inspiring views over fields of plump sheep, the pagodas of both Ardbeg and Lagavulin distilleries and the sea. On a clear day you can see the Ireland to the west and Arran and the Mull of Kintyre to the east. The setting is tranquil and remote, yet the town of Port Ellen is only a few miles away and Ardbeg distillery with its full flavoured peaty whisky is at the foot of the farm road. In fact the lochs of Callumkill supply Lagavulin and Ardbeg distilleries with the water that makes those distinctive drams.
On the hills of Callumkill we farm cattle and sheep, provide stalking of red and fallow deer and shooting of wild pheasant, snipe and woodcock and we have two very different properties for holiday let.
Islay has much to offer – 8 distilleries of the finest single malt whiskies, world class golf, wonderful beaches and a rich history to explore including Vikings, Celts, Irish saints, Clan feuds and the seat of the Lord of the Isles!
Islay has excellent restaurants and cafes, frequent Ceilidhs, a whiskey festival in May, beach rugby in June and a Jazz festival in August. There is always something happening on Islay. You won’t want to leave and you’ll soon be back.
