4th comment: Buchanan Schoolhouse was absolutely delightful. The accomodation was extremely well appointed and very clean. There is plenty of room if you need a bit of space from the rest of your party as well. All the beds are very comfortable and the WIFI is a great touch. The Oak Tree Inn at Balmaha was a favourite of ours for dining but we did make use of the kitchen facilities like the oven and dishwasher and all worked perfectly (again, very clean). We very much look forward to returning. Excellent all round. Thank you. April 2011.
