Good Hotel Guide Review
On this ‘very special’ island off the Isle of Mull, ‘charming’ co-owners Wendy and Rob MacManaway and Dafydd and Katy Russon create a homely, relaxing atmosphere at their ‘informal’ 19th-century former crofter’s cottage, its lawns tumbling down to the rocky shoreline. ‘It’s a lovely place to stay, with a character and charm of its own.’ Two cosy lounges (one with an open fire, the other with a piano) have wide water views – pick a book off the shelves and settle in. Some bedrooms may be ‘compact’, but all have immaculate linens on a wooden bedstead, and views over sea, garden or courtyard. Save space for chef Richard Shwe’s ‘creative’, ‘imaginative’, ‘delicious’ super-local dishes: Mull venison, garden carrot terrine, venison sausage roll, blueberry mayonnaise at dinner; home-made tattie scones and hogget sausages supplied by island crofters at breakfast. Admirers praise the place with a near-religious fervour: ‘We loved sitting in the garden with a glass of wine before dinner, watching the boats and the views across the Sound of Iona – simply heavenly.’ Another fan: ‘Being here makes a committed atheist feel holy!’ (RS, RM)
