What a fantastic place - sheer perfection! The location is idyllic; remote and tranquil, yet only about quarter of a mile from the main road. We stayed in a beautiful room (the kingsize) overlooking the loch, spacious and exceptionally clean. The little touches in the room make all the difference - beautiful toiletries, freshly baked cakes delivered each day (the treacle flapjack's to die for!), filter coffee and choice of teas.
Breakfasts were excellent, with a good choice of cereals, apricots and yoghurt, homemade bread, jams and marmalade and cocoked food served to order; all served in the dining room overlooking the loch. We enjoyed an evening meal on each of the three nights we stayed. The menus were varied with plenty of choice; the food beautifuylly cooked and presented, with coffee served in the guest lounge. Cindy is a fantastic cook!
Richard and Cindy were lovely hosts - warm, friendly and helpful, attentive without being intrusive and nothing was too much trouble. Richard, in particular, was very knowledgeable about the island and was always ready and able to make recommendations.
We can't wait to return!
