We stayed here for three nights and would recommend it. The room is comfortable with views of seals planking on the rocks opposite! The breakfast is great - everything is homemade, including homemade bread, biscuits and cakes. It's very cosy and quiet. Portnahaven is a...More

About
Description
We have been described as remote - we see this as a good thing - almost the furthest from the distilleries (but still only 15 minutes drive from Bruichladdich) and the regular bus service although excellent does ...More not run in the evenings or on Sundays.We love dogs but even our three black labradors are not allowed in the house. Despite our best efforts the house is not easily accessible if you are unsteady on your feet. Our WiFi works perfectly in some rooms, but when the main body of the house was built in the late 1800's it was built to last, and the thick walls are not conducive to the transmission of radio signals.Lastly we have two children, naturally as parents we think they are amazing, they rarely stray into the guest areas but you may meet them at breakfast. Our eldest will of course offer free crab fishing lessons to guests of all ages should you be interested! Less
