Good Hotel Guide Review

Time for something completely different. On the shores of Loch Ewe, this ‘quirky’ guest house is run by two generations of the ‘charming’ Harrison family; it is filled with two generations of character and whimsy. The 300-year-old house brims with antiques and curios; admirers also like the gentlemen’s billiard table, Victorian piano, open fires and well-stocked library. ‘It has all the attributes of a small boutique hotel of outstanding quality,’ a Guide reader writes. Each of the four suites has a lounge and views across the bay. ‘We watched otters from the window of our sunny, spacious sitting room.’ A single (and singular) bedroom was added this year: accessed via a private garden entrance, it has a hand-painted antique two-poster bed, and a marble bathtub set between carved pillars. In the nautical-themed dining room (a seven-foot gilded compass; hand-painted stars on the ceiling), four-course modern Scottish dinners are ‘cooked to perfection’. Typical dishes: garlicky local squid, herbed vermouth; pan-fried Goosnargh duck, wild mushrooms, port-and-shallot sauce. Green-fingered guests, check out the shoreline kitchen garden and subtropical ornamentals. (JH)

'A family owned and run hotel that surpasses all expectations. They have created an oasis on the wild coast of Scotland. Their passion and commitment is evident in every aspect. The house is comfortable and eclectic. The views are amazing. The food was a highlight of our trip. Dinner was beautifully prepared; breakfast menu extensive and creative . ' - - April, 2016
