 Last year we wrote about how wonderfully well-equipped the Smiddy is. It is simply exceptional..... communications prior to our visit were very helpful in reassuring us that great care was being taken to ensure C-19 security. We’ll be booking for next year again as soon as we get home!’

‘ .... the Smiddy is absolutely beautiful and so well equipped it offers things you never even thought of asking for. It is so homely and comfortable, we found ourselves looking forward to coming ‘home’ each night after our daily activities’.

What a fantastic place to stay near the fishing on the Ailort. We enjoyed the local beaches and had a great trip to Rum, seeing whales, porpoise, sea eagles and dolphins!'
