We stayed at the Dark Isle on our cycle trip through the Hebrides. We arrived on the only day that we'd had constant rain and mist so we were very glad when we saw the hotel looming out of the mist! The room was comfortable and the bath most welcome after our soggy cycle ride from Lochmaddy.
We ate in the bar and had good hearty meals, I had fish pie with loads of scallops, very tasty. Mr Woodcock had steak pie. All good stuff to refuel us for our cycle ride the next day. The portions were so big we couldn't manage a pudding.
The hotel is near the airport so the clientele is mixed, tourists, business men and tradesmen but seemed to cater for all needs.
The hotel is right next to the sea and a very large windmill.
The staff were helpful and friendly.
