“One night is not enough!!!!”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

David and Stella Cash are the perfect hosts. A warm welcome into their comfortable home soon makes you feel at ease and relaxed after, in our case, a long journey. The bedroom was so luxurious with lovely linen, Arran Aromatics toilletries, books to browse and views to loose your thoughts in. But unfortunately the time here was very limited. Drinks and canapés beckoned with friends in the drawing room. We arrived later than planned the single track twisty road from Salen takes longer than I had thought.
Dinner in the dining room is a set menu so if you if you have any requests, better for all, to call ahead. The menu,for our taste, was absolutely delicious. To start spinach, cherry and goats cheese salad which was, for us, a new combination but ooh so tasty. Mains was fresh lobster, salad, roast new potatoes and salad leaves. Well that is a combination that works every time and all sourced within walking distance or very nearly. Dessert was their special goats milk salted caramel ice cream and fresh strawberries. Another new combination but a firm favourite. Stella who is the kitchen goddess has an excellent palate and we, all three of us, could not fault it. There was daughter Pheobe's hand made chocolates and coffee to finish in a haze of loveliness. So pleased where we that it was late before we left out hosts company and enjoyed a deep slumber in our very comfortable beds.
Breakfast came too soon. There was so many choices from standard,for many, favourite cereal packets to homemade granola, fruit compote and freshly made on the premises goats cheese yoghurt. Cooked breakfast selection offered many variations to suit your hunger and personal requests. We had duck eggs with ours. All served with home baked bread toasted and their own preserves.
David is a lovely host, attentive, considerate without being intrusive. My only disappoint was that one night was not enough. You must stay at least two nights to get the full benefit and enjoy the house, garden, and this very special peninsula. Even pop across to Mull for a few hours or more. Sadly we had to leave but hoping to return soon..
The price? Well it is true you pay for what you get. The quality offered here is exceptional, the food freshly prepared with local produce should be celebrated. Then there is this very special location in the most westerly tip of Scotland. For us it was worth every penny.

“A meal to remember”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Booked a meal here for a family group of 12 for a birthday celebration and it turned out to be an excellent choice. The food is nearly all locally sourced/homemade and was amazing down to the finest detail. The salted goats milk caramel ice cream with raspberry coulis for dessert is not to be missed! Thank you to Stella and David for all your hard work.

“Very welcoming and cosy place to stay!”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We really loved our stay! David and Stella were very friendly and welcoming and taking good care of us. The house and the room are very cosy and warm and it's a great place to rest after hiking and travelling in the rain. And the breakfast was delicious home-made food!

“A Beautiful Bolthole from the Rat Race”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

This place is not just a B&B- Its an amazing experience. David and Stella gave us the warmest welcome we have had anywhere, fresh home made scones were put in the oven as we arrived, and from that moment on we were completely spoiled. David made the fire for us, we sat on the sofa reading, with the sound of crackling wood and the ticking of an old clock, with a constant supply of tea coffee and cakes. Stella makes everything herself from breakfast to dinner, all from the produce that David grows in the garden.It does not feel like a restaurant because its small and personal, it fells like you are in your own country home. The views are stunning, the ferry across to the Isle of Mull was exhilarating. The bedroom and en suite have magnificent views of the sea. The room is very comfortable and homely and has an old fashioned feel, but still with all the mod cons we are used to. Everything about the place is peaceful and harmonious. Probably because they only have 3 bedrooms A step back in time and a bolthole from the rat race. We have been twice in 6 months and are planning another trip very soon.
