Promote your accommodation or business

We offer two kinds of promotion – listings and banner ads. You can have both.

To get your promotion live, or to make an enquiry, please contact us. Here’s what you need to know:


Your listing will appear on the relevant ‘Stay’ accommodation page:

Self-catering (including cottages & holiday homes)

Bed & breakfast


Campsites & motorhomes

Here’s an example regular listing. These appear in alphabetical order:

Featured accommodation listings

‘Featured’ properties can appear higher up than regular listings. Please contact us for details.


If you have a non-accommodation business, you can list it on the Islay Info About Islay local businesses page, coming soon.

Here's an example regular listing:

Islay E-Wheels example ad

Listings fall into business categories and appear in alphabetical order, followed by basic text entries in alphabetical order.

Listing costs: accommodation & business

Advertise with a banner ad

Maximise the visibility of your property or company. A banner ad is a cost-effective way to reach a large number of potential visitors. Ads on Islay Info are popular and are subject to availability.

There are two options – Premium and Standard. All are displayed at 300 pixels wide and include a link to your website. Which option you choose – and the nature of your business – determines how much your ad costs and where it will appear. Here are two examples:

Ellister Lodge ad.

Accommodation ad

For accommodation, your ad will appear on the home page and relevant Islay ‘Stay’ accommodation page, plus if you choose the Premium option, on the nearest ‘Key places’ page to you.

Islay E-Wheels ad.

Non-accommodation ad

For a non-accommodation business, we will place your ad on what we consider the most relevant page but are open to discussion.


The cost for advertising includes creating and producing your banner ad.

Ad option Annual cost Location on website
    Accommodation Other business
Premium £110.00 Home page

  • Your business category (for our guidance – we can discuss this)
  • Brief description (maximum 350 characters including spaces)
  • E-mail address
