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

Jack was great - unfortunately Katherine was ill and we did not get a chance to meet her - but nonetheless this was one of our best stays on recent visit to UK and Europe - Jack is the manager for the nature reserve on Islay and provide some great information about the area - the place was immaculate and...

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!

After travelling around Scotland for 10 days, I can easily say that this was the best place we stayed in.. it's what a B&B should be.. the host Jack is a true gentleman and makes you feel that his home is yours to share. The house was spotless and the library of books is amazing.. it is a house that... More

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
