Good Hotel Guide Review

In ‘a fabulous location on one of the wildest, least-developed of all Scottish islands’, the McCallum family’s whitewashed pub, restaurant and hotel is the place to eat on Jura. Indeed, it is the only place to eat on Jura, where red deer outnumber the 200 human inhabitants 25 to one. George Orwell loved the mountainous landscape, and stayed in a farmhouse writing Nineteen-Eighty-Four. It was a primitive place compared to this ‘comfortable’ hotel, where, say the nominators, their premium room had ‘a king-size bed, superb modern bathroom, unbelievable view over the Sound of Jura’. None of the bedrooms has TV, but there is much else to watch. ‘We saw an otter fishing in the bay, a red deer stag grazing on the grass, a grey seal.’ Some rooms are not so spacious, not all enjoy a sea view. Two interconnecting rooms can accommodate a family of four. In the ‘cheering, likeable restaurant’, ‘delicious’ dishes include Jura venison in season; locally caught langoustine; Islay crab. Breakfast is ‘varied and imaginative; we especially liked the fat pancakes, crispy bacon and maple syrup’. (Alan and Edwina Williams)
