Arrived after a long drive just as the sun was setting which was a perfect introduction on a warm spring evening. A more welcoming, idyllic and memorable sight would be hard to imagine. A warm welcome from the very industrious and friendly Maggie who showed us to our lovely accommodation to the rear of the property. Spacious, clean and comfortable....

Found this place when looking for a restaurant to eat. We were told that there was no tables inside so we decided to stay and eat outside. We had two courses, prawn cocktail and soup the soup had no seasoning what so and my partner's prawns had not been tailed much to his disappointment. We had haddock and cheeseburger after...

All that is missing is that phone box and the old fisherman- otherwise you could be in the setting for that film. It is remote but handy for an overnighter and morning ferries to Skye. Our room was at the back and though basic was large clean and comfy. Maggie is very friendly and helpful. Food was excellent. The portion...

You wonder why you usually need to book a table at this restaurant - its in a wee quiet village in the back of beyond - but tables here are in demand ! That's partly what makes it so special - apart from the food of course ! Maggie (front of house) and her partner (the chef) run this wee...

Arisaig and coastline of white sand beaches and stunning views of the small isles is always a joy to experience. The Old Library Restaurant with Rooms provided a great place to relax and enjoy good food at a reasonable price. Expedia sold us a sea view room that was not available but Maggie and her team made up for our...

Really excellent food - most sourced from the local larder in the West Highlands and cooked with great imagination. Hospitality is impeccable with attentive staff and very relaxed atmosphere. We loved the scallops with orange and black pudding starters in particular..

We stayed here for one night and it was lovely. Lovely warm clean room with a fantastic shower. The Cullen Skink was the best I've ever had and the breakfast was just as good. The lady who looked after us was lovely and nothing was too much trouble. Does what it says on the tin, not pretentious in any way.

“Two sea view rooms at front, but rear garden rooms each have a small terrace with table and chairs - Room 4's certainly caught the sun!”
