We stayed here one night whilst cycling round the island and loved it. The room we had was thoughtfully decorated, lovely warm colours and textures and our hosts were most welcoming. We had not managed to get an evening meal for various reasons and had some cheese and biscuits with us and our hostess immediately offered to supply us with... More

very good B&B, fantastic location, great hosts, located in the country with no disturbance at all from either people or cars etc. could see deer from my room beyond the fields :) we arrived by car which frankly makes it very easy as Islay is not that big.

We stayed ay Loch Gruinart House for just two nights whilst visiting Islay. We arrived late on the first night but were still warmly welcomed. Our room was spotlessly clean and nicely decorated with a decent en suite. No TV and little phone reception but we didn't mind. Breakfast was cereal and homemade bread for toast (with other bits such... More

Like previous reviewers, we really enjoyed staying at Loch Gruinart House. Brilliant location for activities in all corners of Islay, beautiful walks right from the doorstep, lovely self-service breakfast, great chats with Jack about wildlife and the island, very peaceful, good night's sleep....all in all fantastic value for money. To top it off...corncrakes calling right in front of the house!!!... More

Brilliant location and brilliantly hosted by Jack and Catherine (& Finn!). Relaxed atmosphere and a very warm welcome make you feel at home straight away. Lots of books to help identify wildlife decorate the halls and wifi when you need to check extra facts about them. Their approach suited us to the ground and we would definitely recommend staying there.

Staying with Jack and Catherine at Loch Gruinart House was wonderful. They are so welcoming, so full of knowledge about the island and its wildlife, and run a very fine B&B. The house is very nicely furnished, the shower facilities excellent, the bed was very comfortable and the breakfasts were fine. Jack makes fresh bread each day, and the temptation... More

I note and corroborate all of the kind words referenced about Jack and Catherine, our host and hostess, and Loch Gruinart House. They are a lovely couple and wonderful hosts, and made our visit all the more enjoyable with their extensive knowledge and great personalities!! The beauty of Loch Gruinart House lies in the surrounding environment and beautiful nature preserve... More

We stayed at Loch Gruniart for three nights and it was a brilliant decision. Jack was a friendly and amiable host and was a font of knowledge of places to go and things to see. The house, on the edges of the RSPB reserve on the North of the Island, while slightly off the beaten track, is perfectly placed to... More

What an amazing host & house! Rooms were very cozy and nicely furnished; the house itself was beautiful & well-stocked with books; breakfast was delicious; and Jack was a gentleman and the perfect host! Worth every second of the short drive to stay here.
