Interaction with guests
We live nearby so we can be there to welcome you when you arrive and show you round the house and also point out places of interest in order for you to enjoy the Island. Callum speaks Gaelic as his first language and we both speak English. If you have already done your research and decided on your itinerary we are available to provide local knowledge at any time but we do realise that many people just want to be left alone to find their own way around.
