Lovely Place. The Attention to detail in The King Size Bedroom with Large En-suite was excellent. Art Nouveau/Arts & Crafts Period Style.The Views of Skye, The Water & Skye Bridge from the bedroom Window where great. Very Nice breakfast. Choose this room if you can £40pppn well worth the little extra.

Ross & Jayne were great hosts. They've renovated the Ceol Na Mara into a beautiful place to stay. The bathroom is stunning (in the King room). We lucked out with weather because it was bright sunshine for most of out stay so the view across the water was spellbinding. Jayne chatted with us about things to see on Skye, places...

My partner and I stayed in the Ceol na Mara 23-26 Feb 2016 and absolutely loved it. It was easy to find, right on the A87 with parking available (but it isn't noisy, the A87 is not a busy road at all). The views from both our bedroom and the breakfast room were breath-taking and ever changing with the weather....

Driving through the Highlands is a must when going to Scotland - extremely beautiful! But staying at Jayne and Ross' B&B made our trip complete. Absolutely wonderful people, very helpful, generous and kind. Very cosy and very nice accommodation and service. We will definitely come back to stay at Ceol Na Mara. We give this B&B the best recommendations.

We stayed with Jane and Ross for 3 nights, accompanied by our Australian friends. Right from the start we felt welcome by Jane who settled us into our rooms. Both rooms were of a good size and fitted out with everything we needed, and more. One room has a very large bathroom and our Ozy friends were most impressed with...

An ideal place to stay just a few miles from Kyle and Skye. The house itself is warm and welcoming with great hospitality from owners Jayne and Ross. The Rennie Mackintosh decor and wonderful views of Loch made our stay very special. Breakfasts fab too!

Ross and Jane always gave us a very heartwarming treat for us, we are very appreciated. If we go back to Highland, there is no doubt to stay at their BnB again. We can not forget a nice chat with Ross and Jayne. Highly recommended.

We had a great three night stay at Ceol Na Mara. We stayed in the king size room which was very spacious and comfortable with a great view and a really nice ensuite bathroom (huge). The breakfasts were great with a nice selection of items. It is conveniently located close to Skye as well as other attractions in the area....

We have stayed at Ceol Na Mara twice; both times Ross and Jayne have been brilliant hosts. The bed and breakfast is very nice and the master bedroom is especially stunning with it's beautiful bedroom and a great view out to Skye. Breakfast is very tasty - I'd recommend the salmon and scrambled eggs! I'd go back to Ceol Na...
