Fairy Hill Cottage, Isle of Islay, Scotland

This is another ‘Islay Cottage’  but this time, a sweet little Victorian one.  We passed Fairy Hill Cottage in Kildalton, Islay,  which is at the end of the Whisky trail, after passing the distilleries of Laphroaig, Lagavulin and finally Ardbeg, all of which we did visit.  The little cottage is at the foot of Fairy Hill, which is in the heart of a designated ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’.  You pass through the bluebell wood before you reach the cottage, which makes it a little bit more magical, but I only managed to get a little of the hill.  I think the Fairy Hill is called Cnoc Rhaonastil, and was long known to be the place of the faerie-folk and it’s thought that the Queen of Faerie herself lived here.

  1. That is the most charming little place! It looks to be just about the right size for me. But I don’t think I’d be wanting to take it away from the Queen of Faerie. 🙂
