Allt Arais Guest Reviews

Absolutely beautiful island. Fantastic views and a fabulous bed and breakfast. We were welcomed on the door step with a lovely smile and felt at home straight away. Our rooms were very clean well decorated and a very comfortable bed. Our two night stay was the highlight of our Scottish holiday.
