Good Hotel Guide Review
A slice of home baking greets arriving guests at Graeme and Emma Clark’s much-praised island guest house, which stands in large gardens against a vista of the Mull of Oa and the Atlantic beyond. The consummate hosts enthusiastically dispense heaps of local knowledge, perhaps over a dram of Islay malt by the peat fire. Evenings, ask for a platter of charcuterie, cheese or local seafood – they come with home-baked bread and oatcakes – then retire to a handsome bedroom stocked with spoiling extras (Scottish-blended teas; Highland chocolates). The award-winning breakfast includes poached and fresh fruit; porridge laced with whisky. Close to the island’s small airfield; ferry terminals a short drive away.
