          This was perfect, not too far from a major city, not too close to one either. Walks all over with a perfect view of the loch and friendly staff. The variety for breakfast is incredible, I would recommend the smoked salmon here, and there are...More

          Excellent B&B with wonderful views over the Kyle of Lochalsh. Travelled with friends from USA who were completely overawed by the setting. Couldn't have picked a better serring Wonderful welcome by the proprietor, Norman. Comfortable room and fantastic breakfast. Will definitely return.

          Others have commented well, and accurately, on the superb loch-side location. What makes the place stand out however is both the quality of the rooms/bathrooms and the excellent personal service. On that basis it's extremely hard to fault. Additional plus points: the breakfast itself; the...More

          I stayed two nights in the month of June. Very quiet room. If you are looking for the typical small B&B, this is not your place. Run like a mini-motel which was fine. No restaurant close-by. Second night had a very good diner at the...More

          We plan to be traveling in Scotland without a car, arriving in Kyle of Lochalsh by train from Inverness. We would like to visit Eilean Donan Castle and Isle of Skye. Would this be a good place for us to stay or are the logistics of getting around without a car too prohibitive? Traveling in the summer. Thanks for your assistance!
