Good Hotel Guide Review
‘What more could one ask for?’ On the northern shore of Islay, this ‘charming, beautifully appointed’ B&B is run by ‘wonderfully welcoming’ Fiona Doyle. The stone-built house is fronted by well-kept gardens, and has ‘amazing views over the bay’. A florist, the hostess displays ‘magnificent’ flower arrangements in the large drawing room. ‘Cosy, comfortable and bright’, the prettily furnished bedrooms gaze seaward or inland across the fields and have superb bathrooms. ‘Fiona made dinner reservations for us – a nice touch.’ Breakfast (‘such a feast’) is a ‘scrumptious’ start to the day. Wellies, coats and beach towels are provided for coastal wanderings. Justly famous for its malt whiskies, the island currently has eight working distilleries.
