The lighthouse is such an amazing and unique place to stay you, hardly willl find anywhere else in Scotland. Definitely a recommendation for individuals who like to you off the beaten roads. Hosts have been very nice, food really amazing - so just a splendid stay!

This place is amazing, if you want to get away from the world surrounded by fantastic scenery and wildlife this is the place to stay. Roger and Tracey are lovely, and have great knowledge of the area. We stayed in the first officers quarters and found it spacious, comfortable, clean and everything you could possibly need is there,torches binoculars folding...

Something a bit different from the usual b n b's and hotels. We travel a lot touring on our motorbikes all over the UK and Europe and have stayed in all types of accommodation and it is nice to find something we had never tried before. Staying at a lighthouse certainly offers a unique experience. Yes it is a bit...

Nice place with stunning views. The environment is excellent for walking. The breakfast is good but no Scottisch breakfast. Dinner was nice and simple with fresh and healthy ingredients. Choice between a vegetarian and a non-vegetarian platter. Maybe the owners could create a better atmosphere during and right after dinner to encourage social contacts between guests. lovely dog!

Thanks for your review, we are glad you enjoyed the views and the walking but a little disappointed with your other comments. We don't do the boring 'bacon & eggs' breakfast that you get in every other B&B in the Highlands. Instead we provide an amazing buffet of home made granola and muesli, home-made bread with home-made preserves, a selection...

Simply an excellent West Coast experience of fine hospitality and dramatic scenery. Much attention to detail by Roger and Tracy in both accommodation and food including ethical and sustainable sourcing.

We had a really nice stay at Rua Reidh Lighthouse. Roger and Tracy are really nice people, helpful, great food. We did the suggested walk of a few hours and explored real Scottish surroundings including wind, rain, sun and beautifull views :-) Afterwards relaxing on the couch near the stove, just a perfect day! Thank you!

We really enjoyed our week's stay self-catering in the first officer's quarters. It had everything we needed and was really comfortable. It's in a fantastic location away from it all.
