Caroline is a fine baker so an afternoon treat will be waiting – a Victoria sponge filled with George’s raspberry jam or maybe some Welsh cakes just off the griddle – delicious with a pot of tea. Breakfast is good too, by the fireside and full of locally sourced meats and eggs, veggie options and homemade sourdough and pastries.
Each bedroom of this classic island cottage has a family connection and story. Upstairs Flora with its Scottish touches comes with the whole top floor and a sitting room; Nancy downstairs is all soothing blues and cosy Welsh fabrics. If it’s a ‘dreich’ day you can stay in and enjoy the warmth of the wood-burner while you dip into an interesting book on these fascinating slate isles.
A two-minute walk and you’re on Clachan Bridge enjoying the stunning Sound views; take a trip to Easdale for gardens and museum and the Sea Safari through the Gulf of Corryvreckan. Busy terrier Bramble will welcome you back.
