    Not convinced about the name but there are paintings for sale. Old inn cleverly extended with function room used as dining room with bar. There are seven modernised bedrooms. Food is OK but menu a bit limited. Lower room rates out of summer season

    Yes, there's a wee store 200 yds down the road, but shut at 6pm when we were there. As for ice, I'd get a whiskey and a glass of wine in the bar, ask for a half pint of ice and retire to your room. John.
