Good Hotel Guide Review
Time for something completely different. On the shores of Loch Ewe, this ‘quirky’ guest house is run by two generations of the ‘charming’ Harrison family; it is filled with two generations of character and whimsy. The 300-year-old house brims with antiques and curios; admirers also like the gentlemen’s billiard table, Victorian piano, open fires and well-stocked library. ‘It has all the attributes of a small boutique hotel of outstanding quality,’ a Guide reader writes. Each of the four suites has a lounge and views across the bay. ‘We watched otters from the window of our sunny, spacious sitting room.’ A single (and singular) bedroom was added this year: accessed via a private garden entrance, it has a hand-painted antique two-poster bed, and a marble bathtub set between carved pillars. In the nautical-themed dining room (a seven-foot gilded compass; hand-painted stars on the ceiling), four-course modern Scottish dinners are ‘cooked to perfection’. Typical dishes: garlicky local squid, herbed vermouth; pan-fried Goosnargh duck, wild mushrooms, port-and-shallot sauce. Green-fingered guests, check out the shoreline kitchen garden and subtropical ornamentals. (JH)
