Good Hotel Guide Review
Part of a small crofting community on the dramatic north-west coast, Elaine Fothergill and Richard Inger’s traditional Hebridean farmhouse displays rugged views across to the Butt of Lewis. Welcoming, and charmingly decorated, the guest house has comfortable, blue-toned bedrooms with locally crafted pottery, paintings, soft furnishings; a silent mini-fridge contains fresh milk and water. The quiet reading lounge overlooks the surging Atlantic; hot drinks are available all day. Served communally, a simple two-course, Aga-fresh supper (arranged in advance) showcases local produce, alongside an extensive selection of tipples. ‘Excellent’ breakfasts and packed lunches fuel a day’s exploration of beaches, mountains and burns; vigour for observing the abundant wildlife.
