Good Hotel Guide Review
‘The combination of a very comfortable lounge and a decent range of malts gives this a house-party feel.’ Neil and Rosemary Colquhoun’s ‘highly enjoyable’ lochside B&B is in a remote, ‘idyllic’ location on the Isle of Skye, surrounded by secluded grounds. Mingle with fellow guests around the squashy sofas and log fire in the drawing room; play chess, snooker or two-piano duets in the billiard room. Named after Scottish islands, bedrooms in the Georgian (with Victorian additions) house have ‘gorgeous’ views of the loch or the garden. In the evening, chef Andrew Macpherson serves an ‘excellent’ dinner of Scottish classics, by arrangement. The Colquhouns have lived here for nearly 15 years and have much local information to share. ‘A highlight was discovering some really unusual destinations, thanks to Neil’s in-depth knowledge of Skye.’ Drawing room, bar, conservatory, dining room (non-residents welcomed, closed Mon), billiard room. 10-acre grounds. Free Wi-Fi (limited), in-room TV. No background music. Tennis court, croquet lawn. Parking. Children welcomed; dogs by arrangement (£10 per night). Resident Labrador, Soay.
