We spend 3 nights at this B&B and it was amazing. The host was more than hospitable. He told us a lot about the region, activities, restaurants etc. He even made time for us during rugby matches of national importance ;-). We really felt like pampered guests. Everyday the room was cleaned when we got back. Maybe this is considered... More

There is something about this place ..... totally welcoming, we loved it. I think it has a subtle style, smart yet cosy. It was as if you were staying in a friend's house. Big bedroom, comfortable lounge, amazing value. We enjoyed fruit/cereal/fresh bread breakfast rather than cooked, and self-service made it relaxed. Top recommendations from Jack for walks and bird...

...waking up to the smell of fresh baked bread, arriving home to the smell of fresh banana loaf, hot tea and a comfy couch with fields of birds out the front window, all on the north end of Islay. This is the retreat known as Loch Gruinart House, where Jack and Catherine will look after all your needs. We were... More

Really enjoyed our 3 night stay. Great hosts, made us feel very welcome. Very clean room with en-suite and comfy bed (bedlinen must be 900tc, luxurious or what!) Help yourself breakfast with lots of choice and home made bread. Location is so quiet with lovely walks and nature reserve right on the doorstep yet it is very central for exploring... More

We spent a week in the 'Studio' at Loch Gruinart House last October. It was so nice, we made sure that we booked in again for our return visit this year. Catherine and Jack are the perfect hosts. We received a warm welcome and they provided us with all the local information we needed. Finn the Labrador was also keen... More

Boyd and I stayed only one night at Loch Gruinart House as we missed the ferry, which was a great disappointment to us. Catherine and Jack were very gracious, friendly and informative hosts. They made every effort to make our short stay as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. The room was clean, tidy and the bathroom was very spacious. We... More

Hi Folks, thanks for your kind words. It was indeed a shame that your visit was shorter than you hoped - but perhaps that brief taste of Islay left you hungry for more! You will be particularly welcome when you return. Best wishes, Jack and Catherine More

Jack and Catherine made our trip to Islay just wonderful. Their hospitality is one of a kind! The Bed & Breakfast itself offers clean, comfortable and warm rooms. The breakfast includes handmade bread. The perfect start for exploring the isle or taste some nice peated whisky! We definitely come back!
