Good Hotel Guide Review
On the north-west coast of the Isle of Lewis, Elaine Fothergill and Richard Inger run their ‘high-quality’ guest house in a traditional Hebridean farmhouse, a short walk from the water’s edge. The sky is vast here; the birds, wild. Recently refreshed bedrooms with views of rugged coast or moorland crofts have a modern rustic feel, with handcrafted ceramics and works by local artisans. Organic coffee and tea are supplied, along with fresh milk and cold drinks. Guests have use of a TV lounge (with a fire, in chilly weather) and a reading room overlooking the surging Atlantic. Served communally, a hearty, Aga-fresh dinner may be arranged in advance. ‘Excellent’ breakfasts fuel exploration of beaches, mountains and burns.
