Warm, friendly, and tasty. David and his son went out there way to give us a great stay. Hope we get to go back, as it was so relaxing and value for money when compared to the rest of the island. The breakfast was a full Scottish with option for cereal and fresh fruit. Their bar had a great selection... More

We visited this inn for dinner on Sunday. We had not booked and when asked if we could eat, the barman went to check. It took about 20mins before he let us know that it would be fine but would be after 8pm (we arrived about 7pm). We enjoyed a drink while waiting. We were given a menu and left... More

A very charming B&B clean and fresh, with the best food on the Island. Try Haggis with the superb sauce. David and his son take very good care of you, and they have a excellent bar with over 300 kinds of whiskey.
