“Superb Host”
Reviewed 28 July 2008

We booked a double room well in advance as we were going to the Hebcelt Festival. We were very impressed on arrival as the host was very welcoming and our room was huge! It also had a view overlooking the bay and a large en-suite. We were further impressed when instead of calling a taxi to take us into town he took us personally and gave a brief tour so we could familiarise ourselves.
The breakfasts were brilliant and the black pudding is well recommended.
The only downsides to our visit was a lack of breakfast menu. Anything can be had but it is easier if there is a choice instead of having to ask. Also, the smoke alam batteries were dying and therefore giving a beeping warning - very distracting.
If it were not for those 2 very easily fixed complaints I would have given 5 stars and excellent.
Chances are that the batteries will have been replaced so I would recommend this B&B.

A fantastic location,only a few miles from Stornoway overlooking the sea and south towards Skye.Mr.Martin could not have been more helpful,we had an en-suite room with sky T.V.(not that we watched,much) This house lies on a narrow strip of land with a rocky beach in front and a sandy beach behind,great for walking.
`we`ll be back`.
