On arrival on Islay, make your way to the village of Bridgend, then follow signs for Port Charlotte/Portnahaven. You will drive through the village of Bruichladdich, and two miles further on, you will arrive in the village of Port Charlotte. In the centre of Port Charlotte, drive past the Loch Indaal Hotel on your right, turning right at the signpost for ‘Kilchiaran’. Follow this road for three miles and you will descend a steep hill with views of the sea. Continue past the round steading, and a further hundred yards along this road on your right is the track up to the cottages – it is the right hand cottage of the pair.
