We are passionate about sustainability and preserving the environment we live in . . .
Just over 12 years ago we renovated the pre 1745 Inn so sustainability was at its heart, and we wanted to prove that it was possible to operate a leisure and tourism business in a remote location both efficiently and profitably with minimal environmental impact.
Equally important is preserving the environment around us, so we actively encourage biodiversity and try to protect the very thing that the area is renowned for, beautiful unspoilt countryside, coastline and waters. The areas was only connected by road in 1966 and to mains electricity since 1983!
In reality, today, we have used 100% renewable energy for 5 years, and during the same period no food waste has left site, we stopped single use plastic in 2017, and have reduced waste to landfill by 98.5%. The garden and immediate area is full of birdsong, wild flowers and wildlife.
One of the best ways to experience our surroundings from the water . . . imagine sea-kayaking in crystal clear waters, landing on white sandy beaches, paddling around ancient castles, discovering amazing geology and watching the diverse and abundant wildlife. As the great base for doing things, we run also run sea-kayak guiding and coaching specialising in bespoke adventures and residential courses.
All our modern, spacious and practical ensuite rooms are dog friendly and have their own ground floor external entrance. There is a large dining room, spacious bar and a lounge overlooking the sea which is ideal for pre-activity briefings, meetings, or simply admiring the view.
All our food is prepared and cooked on the premises and designed for those who’ve enjoyed a great day outdoors. Using the best ingredients possible we change our menu to make the most of the fresh ingredients available at the time; Healthy, Natural and as Local as possible is our speciality, and we cater for vegetarian, vegan, gluten free as standard.
The great food can be accompanied by a choice of Real Ale, organic wine, a natural soft drink, Scottish Highland and Island gin, or a heart warming single Malt!
Whatever your pastime, hillwalking, cycling, sea-kayaking, wild swimming, dog walking, photography, painting, sailing, fishing, wildlife spotting, island hopping, or just wanting to relax in beautiful surroundings, we are simply the great base for doing things . . .
As a family run business, we believe that personal service is key and therefore we don’t use and booking agents or 3rd Party online booking sites, preferring to help you directly and answer any question – just fill out the enquiry form, send us an email or call us!
