The Old Library & Lodge Information

Description

Built in 1750 as a stable for the local estate horses the Old library has undergone many changes until in 1973 it became a restaurant and over the years has added on bedrooms. With stunning views from the front of the building looking out over Loch nan Ceall to the Rhue peninsula and Hebridean islands of Eigg and Rum and peacefull views to the rear of our garden. The Old Library is a welcoming and friendly place to stay.

We have finally achieved our dream of running our own business!!!! My wife and I have over 50 years experience in Hospitality and catering ranging from small hotels like The Old Library up to 5 star establishments like Gleneagles also latterly I have managed hotels in Baku, Azerbaijan. We welcome you to our "new" Old Library and hope you have a pleasant and enjoyable stay.
