Good Hotel Guide Review
‘What a fabulous place to stay!’ write trusted readers this year of this former Highland village blacksmith’s house and workshop, which Robert Bryson and Glen Russell now run as a restaurant-with-rooms. ‘We were very warmly welcomed by Robert, with home-made cake and tea.’ Four compact house bedrooms are decorated in attractive cottage style. Two have a king-size bed, two a 4ft 6in double. All have handmade soaps and fluffy robes. While two rooms face the road, they are quiet thanks to double glazing. If you want to stay a while, to explore the West Coast, maybe to climb Ben Nevis or take a scenic ride on the Jacobite Steam Train (aka the Hogwarts Express), book the Bryson Suite in the old smithy workshop. It has a ground-floor lounge, double bedroom, a bathroom with shower, and a spiral staircase to a twin-bedded room on a mezzanine. In Russell’s restaurant, Glen’s menus showcase local produce in dishes such as West Coast scallops au gratin and herb-crusted rump of lamb with pearl barley risotto, or for vegans maybe squash, chickpea and spinach curry. ‘The evening meal was delicious.’ (John and Val Norris, LM)
