Stayed here on Day 4 of my WHW trip. The bnb is just off to the right of the Way and pretty central in Tyndrum.
I was a little early and phoned ahead and the Lady of the premises said it was fine to check in early. I was greeted by Chris with a smile and a very refined accent! And on accidentally brushing against the freshly painted window frame, he said, "Are you touching things already?!" Now I can see how some folk might see him a little officious, but I think it was just his humour, though some could take him the wrong way.
He was good enough to have a heater on in my room for arrival on a very cold March day which was very "warmly" received. The shared living room was large and very nicely decorated. A large room to heat on a cold March day, even with the heater on at full blast, so it was much warmer to stay in my room.
Breakfast was excellent....TOO much porridge! He gave me a bucket not a bowl of it! I had to surrender as the cooked breakfast was to follow.
Chris has led an interesting life, and shared tales of his tea plantation life in South Africa. As I left he gave me a Time magazine with articles on S.A. to take away with me.
I would have no hesitation in staying there again. He can be quirky, but then again, who isn't at times?
