A new Islay Accommodation Directory

All of Islay's accommodation in one easy to navigate directory, searchable, with a nice clean look and easy to navigate. Those are the basic features of this new website which is a part of the Islayinfo website. Up till now there were four different pages on the Islayinfo website with listings of accommodations and there were no search facilities either, which meant a lot of scrolling and switching pages back and forth. These pages will remain in place for the time being. The directory provides listings for hotels, guest houses, bed and breakfasts, self catering cottages and campsites. If you have a property on Islay which is not yet listed and you like to see it in the new directory please contact me. All the listings are free although the directory also offers sponsored links which appear first in the search results. Present advertisers on the Islayinfo website automatically receive a sponsored listing, if you want to advertise on Islayinfo and like to have a sponsored listing too you can contact me for a quote.

The new directory should make it a lot easier to find accommodation in an area of your choice. The properties are listed in categories which are geographically split in villages and types of accommodation. A map of Islay is provided to locate the areas and villages of your choice. Every property, in the detail view, also has the option of adding comments which act like a real guestbook, the ones you often find in accommodations. Everyone is free to add his or her comments to one or more properties, which could make it easier for other people to make their decision. The comments however are moderated before they come online.

I hope you enjoy the new Islay Accommodation Directory.

Another great addition to your site Ron... IslayInfo certainly IS the ultimate guide to Islay as no other Islay site comes close!

Thanks a lot Bruce! I really felt this would be a good addition and in fact the first visitor added a very nice comment on a B&B in Port Ellen. I hope people will start finding their way to this directory and especially add their comments, this makes the choice for future visitors even easier!

I'm already working on my next project: Islay Image Gallery. A collection of many Islay pictures. There are more than 60 pictures available now and there will be lots more very soon :-)

Keeps me busy in the winter months :-)
