My Mum and I recently stayed at Kismul B&B on a short trip to the West Coast.
Katherine was there when we arrived and greeted us with a pot of tea and some of her delicious home baking! Perfect after a drive up from Edinburgh...
We stayed in the downstairs room - a double and single room with en suite shower and toilet. Both beds were very comfortable and the bedding very warm. The room was very well presented and we were provided with our own kettle and complimentary coffee, milk etc. The heating system in the room was very impressive and included the option to have the heated flooring on in the bathroom!
Breakfast was consistently excellent on all 3 mornings we were there. I opted for the lovely pancake stack each morning; Mum had that on 2 mornings and had scrambled eggs, mushrooms and tomatoes on another. Katherine was nothing but flexible with our requests. Breakfast was when suited us and was served in her lovely dining room. Fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereals and toast were on offer before the "main event".
Location wise, the views onto Loch Morar from the B&B are stunning. The house is along a winding road with a steep brae half a mile before you get to the property and it's worth the drive! The weather was very changeable when we were there but it only added to the excitement of Scottish scenery. We were there doing the walk from Bracara to Tarbet to then get the ferry to Mallaig, train to Morar and then walk to Bracara, something I'd love to do again when the weather was perhaps slightly more favourable! Katherine very kindly gave me some of her homemade brownies when we returned - she could see I required some chocolate nourishment!
My Mum and I cannot fault Katherine's hostess abilities and I recommend her B&B wholeheartedly. We would both love to give her 10 out of 5!
