Good Hotel Guide Review

Patricia Watt’s rural hotel on the Cowal peninsula faces green fields close to the shoreline where cattle once crossed the water to the Isle of Bute. ‘It’s a fantastic setting,’ says a Guide reader this year, who discovered a ‘friendly’ operation with a ‘great bar’, ‘comfortable bedrooms’ and ‘terrific hosts’. ‘The only pub in the area, it is the focal point of what goes on in the village.’ A log fire and ‘excellent Loch Fyne beer’ create a homely atmosphere in the bar. In the dining room, take in views across the Kyles of Bute while enjoying much local produce: langoustines from the bay; local scallops; Bute lamb and beef. ‘The food is very good, especially if you stick to the basics. A seafood salad with Isle of Bute hot smoked salmon and crayfish tails was commendable; a plain prawn cocktail much appreciated.’ Upstairs, bedrooms (with ‘luxury bedlinen’) overlook coast or countryside. In the morning, take the ferry to Bute, keeping an eye out for seals and basking sharks; the hostess, a keen cyclist, can suggest the best walking and cycling routes. For sailors, there are six moorings on the bay for hotel guests. (Chris Elliott)
