Good Hotel Guide Review
Amid large gardens, Graeme and Emma Clark’s well-placed whitewashed house, midway between Bowmore and Port Ellen on Islay, gazes across the Mull of Oa to the Atlantic beyond. Consummate hosts, the Clarks dispense local knowledge, freshly baked cakes, a dram each night in front of the fire, to appreciative B&B guests. Smart bedrooms, decorated with antiques and judicious plaid, are supplied with spoiling extras: toiletries, Scottish-blended teas, chocolates from a Highland chocolatier. The award-winning breakfast spread includes poached and fresh fruit, porridge laced with whisky (from one of the eight working distilleries on the island). Golden beaches and archaeological sites are nearby. Close to the small island airfield; ferry terminals a short drive away.
