 Hallo hallo everyone! After 12 years running this unique small hotel with its award winning restaurant it's time for us to move on, because at 70 years the work is getting a bit tough, and I've lost interest in yachting...and it's all yachts and yachties around here...the best sailing in North Europe.We're 80 yards from the marina.

We've got 2 guestrooms cottage style with showers/toilets, a three room apartment plus bathroom for vacation letting, plus the owners cottage sleeping 2 adults plus two kids. There's a 13 yard long panoramic lounge bar, a restaurant "The Tavern" seating 40, and a full professional kitchen and beer cellar.

This village has a School, Post Office, 2 pubs, a shop, a golf course and the marina with its boatyard. There's a bus to the ferry every half an hour and the ferry leaves every hour taking 35 minutes to the mainland. From the ferry habor the train takes 50 minutes into Glasgow.

Anyone interested please Email me at yachthaven@rock.com and I'll send you a brochure. Americans and Canadians are particularly popular and welcome in West Scotland.

 Glad you enjoyed it! It's seriously beautiful in these parts and a low population so very peaceful. No crime on this island...maybe a bit of graffiti at the back of the school yard! The bay here remains calm even in strong winter winds so a very good yacht haven. It is the yachts that provide most of our trade, but we also get hikers, bikers, bird-watchers, golfers, and those seeking out the prehistoric standing stones and iron-age ruins. There's plenty of wild deer and a colony of 200 seals. As the Gulf Stream licks this bit of Scotland we have sub-tropical plants all along the isle's east coast, our "palms,"  they're really Yuka trees. We get snow very rarely and it settles just for a few hours. I should mention the astounding Gothic historic house, now open to the public, which attracts visitors from North America, and many of those tourists are seeking out records of their ancestors which is quite a fashion these days. I think I'll leave mine to stay in annonymous peace!

Just visited Scotland...into Oban...ferry to Mull...ferry to mainland western tip...ferry to Skye...Edinburgh for the fringe

Had a great time but just scratched the surface.

Where you are looks like it would be more protected geographically.. hence all the yachting?
