Bishops Walk bed and breakfast is a relaxing place to stay for either a short break or longer if you are lucky enough to do so. It is very clean and comfortable where the delightful owner of the property Mrs Margaret McDonald makes you feel very much at home and sets you up for the day with a very... large... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at The Bishops House. Margaret is a lovely lady, and very hospitable. Food was great and very comfortable surroundings. I very much enjoyed chats with Margaret on the way to the kitchen - she made me feel very welcome.

Had a great 2 night stay with Margaret in June and thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our stay with her. Her knowledge, insights and honesty about Island life were very much appreciated and her breakfasts tremendous. It was a privilege to share Margaret's home with her for a brief but memorable period. Thanks

Margaret met us from the ferry, gave us a tour of the village, and welcomed us into her home. She was lovely and friendly, the room was very comfortable, and the bathroom, right next door. I'm sure the sea view was fabulous (shame about the mist - other reviewers have talked about the hill, we didn't see it!) Still despite... More

I had 4 wonderful days at Margarets house - so close to the Abbey and the beautiful beaches in the south end of the Island. Very recommendable indeed. And Iona itself is the most beautiful place in the world. I will come back for sure.

I have been to Margaret McDonald's Bishop Walk B&B now 3 times and EVERY time I have been very pleased with the friendly welcome, the cleanliness and superb cooking, I even visited Margaret once when I stayed on Iona but was not able to stay at her B&B. I can highly recommend this B&B and can see no reason why... More

Margaret is a lovely person who was very accommodating. She was flexible with our dietary needs, arriving and leaving times, and in getting our bags to and from the ferry. The sheep are very entertaining, especially the lambs (in May). She has a beautiful view of the sea from the tub upstairs, and the tallest hill, quick to climb, is... More

A true shelter. Margaret McDonald made us feel like we had finally arrived home after a long, long journey. She picked us up at the ferry landing, fixed delicious meals, treated us in every way as if she had been waiting just for us and, at the end, regretted our leaving. I suspect she makes everyone feel this way, but... More

Margaret undoubtedly is a great hostess. She picks you up from the pier from the ferry and welcomes you warmly to her large and comfortable home. Her kitchen becomes yours for the duration of your stay. Her breakfasts are amazing and her kindness refreshing.

Thank you for a lovely stay at your place Margaret. Your warm welcome, the spotless and cosy house with our 'room with a view'. Waking up to the wind and sunshine and the smell of a tasty breakfast. Our conversations over the breakfast table from mother to mother, the sharing of stories. Your helping hand for getting ready for the... More
