The Island Bear is a quirky, cosy, wonderful place. The location is perfect for seeing all of Islay with access to the limited amenities on the island. We spend a few days there without a car and it worked out great. Bobby is the consummate host. He made reservations for us, organised a taxi, and even whipped up full-on Scottish breakfasts each morning. Although the place is only a few years old, all the custom furniture and antiques give the impression that it's always been part of the island.
Good luck on the sweet shop, Bobby! It will make a great addition an already fantastic property.
