House of the island is a small hotel in a beautiful location in the rugged western highlands. How many hotels have an island with two white tailed sea eagles visible from the restaurant windows? Not to mention the common seals on the rocks
Cathryn and her husband have been here for 14 years or so and have mastered the art of making you feel at home and relaxed. Nothing is too much trouble and the restaurant serves fabulous local produce both for breakfast and dinner, simply prepared and presented but with bags of flavour. Set dinner at £45 pp is not cheap but is good value. Wines we had were quality and good value. The ever attentive Cathryn ensuring that we were well looked after at all times. They also run the public bar next door which also has a great menu
Decor needs a bit of a revamp but bedrooms overlooking the loch are spacious and have big comfortable beds. Lovely little lounge with wood burner to make It cosy
Local scenery is spectacular and rugged with many local walks of various grades for both Munro baggers and those who like it less hilly.
Fitness centre rating and swimming pool relate to the hills and the loch, respectively
All in all a great place for a long weekend that everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime!
