What an idiosyncratic little gem The Smithy is. We only had a brief stop, but sitting by the loch eating gorgeous (Gluten free) cake with really good tea is hatd to beat! Really interesting hosts who are as individual as the house itself. Looking forward to a return visit.

At a historical site Carol and Peter manage to offer perfect accomodation with lovely breakfast in the morning, tea and scones during the day, as well as to feed the animals around the house, such as geese, dogs, cats. I stayed there for one night and on my return for another one.

Superb stop on a cycle touring adventure across Scotland. The scones are homemade by the man of the house and we a god send to power us over to the Isle of Iona. Great views from the garden in front of the cafe!

We popped in on the off chance for a coffee and a slice of cake. Great welcome when we first arrived, home made cake was lovely. The place has a really relaxed homely feel about it, we will definitely visit again one day and stay in one of the lovely rooms!

We booked in advance and cycled over from Strontian. Carol and Peter were lovely and welcoming. Peter makes fantastic scones which we sampled with a lovely cup of tea sat overlooking the water watching the sun go down. Nothing stiff and starched like some places we've been, it was like having someone look after you in your own home.

We stayed in the twin room for one night. Smithy House is clean and homely with some nice touches such as dressing gowns in the rooms. The view was great! We feel that it may be best to stay here on shorter breaks rather than spending an entire holiday here. Please note, if you have larger luggage you may struggle...

We spent the night here on our way to Iona. We were made to feel at home by Carol who was the perfect hostess. It was very clean, the food was perfect and the view over the Loch was breath taking. Carol provided all bath salts imaginable, along with sprays and creams.... we had the most relaxing time. The dressing...
