13th of May, 2016 | Posted in Bar News | Email Article | Print Article


Islay’s Lochside Hotel has had a revamp and it is looking good. The whisky bar and Duffies Bar, dining room and other public areas have been transformed, while the bedrooms too have all been totally refurbished and each, and every one, now has a brand new ensuite.
The hotel owner by Neil Morrison, who also has McGochan’s on Mull, entrusted Scottish designer Ranald McColl with the work. He told Wee DRAM, “For years people had been coming from all over the world to this bar, and they must have been disappointed when they got here. It may have been renowned the world over for its whiskies, but it didn’t look the part. I didn’t want people to be disappointed any more.”
They certainly won’t be. Check it out at
