New Kilchoan B&B Opens

A new Bed & Breakfast has opened in Pier Road, Kilchoan - and there's something very special about it.

The premises is Skipper's Cottage, built originally by Ardnamurchan Estate to house the skipper of the Estate launch.  In the centre of the village, with views across the Sound of Mull and close proximity to the CalMac ferry terminal, it's ideally placed both for the passing trade and for those who want to enjoy West Ardnamurchan at a more leisurely pace.

There are two rooms available.  This one, with double bed, is called Lady Butterfly, the other has twin beds and has been named Sea Eagle.  Both have sea views, and come with complimentary tea and coffee facilities, hairdryer, and wi fi.

What's so special about this new venture is that it's run by a young Italian couple, Lara Ferrarotti and Filippo Perratone, who have lived on West Ardnamurchan for long enough to fall in love with it and become determined to stay - even though they've seen it through the wettest winter ever.  Their passion for the place is reflected in the invitation on the first page of their website: "We are a young couple determined to offer you the opportunity to truly taste the unique West Ardnamurchan experience, made of astonishing views, strong gales and a very friendly community."

Lara and Filippo's B&B has just opened.  Their website is here.
