We stayed at The Schoolhouse for a night in september with my wife and two sons. We took a double and a twin room and both were excellently well decorated and comfortable. The twin upstairs in particular had an excellent view of Loch Long. The Rooms are within a 10 minute walk of Eilean Donan Castle. Would certainly stay there... More

We loved this place and the people were so good to us. We were right next to the most beautiful castle as well as the Isle of Skye. We had a loaf of bread and a wheel of cheese plus a whole lot of other breakfast foods. Mary went above and beyond to help me recover my sandals that I... More

The spacious bed area and enormous shower room was complemented by the large, spotless and well appointed dining / breakfast kitchen. The breakfast was DIY with a hamper of fresh fruits and breads, complimented by an array of cereals with eggs, cheese, juice & fresh coffee thrown in for good measure, provided. With outside seating areas to the back and... More

When we arrived a couple of weeks ago we were devastated to discover that the Schoolhouse is for sale. Hoping that whoever purchases will maintain the fabulous relaxed "go your own way" style. The visit was very enjoyable. Mary obviously noticed that we had the makings of a fry up in the fridge and added some eggs for us, super... More

We really enjoyed our stay at The Schoolhouse. Our room was very comfortable and we were able to help ourselves to breakfast in the morning. The stunning location is very close to local hotels for an evening meal and a walk to the beautiful Eilean Donan castle - an absolute must-see location in Dornie! Our hosts were very friendly and...

It was my first experience at The Schoolhouse based at Dornie. Warmly received in this beautiful house near the Eileen Castle, such a lovely place! The advise provided by Mary were really relevant to visit the main spots and restaurants in this area. A lovely place highly recommended.

Unusual B & B with self service and cooking facilities - giving you privacy and freedom to come and go. No cooked breakfast served but all the ingredients supplied to do it yourself using great local produce. Location is ideal - close for trips to Skye and further stunning areas in the North West of Scotland. Also convenient location for... More

Dornie is a beautiful small village just before the bridge to the isle of skie and is a great jump off point for a visit in the area. we were travelling as a group of 5 - 2 couples and a single and we "took over" the whole schoolhouse - it was wonderful! The rooms were large, super clean and... More

This may be the best value BnB in Scotland, super spacious, comfy rooms, great self catering facilities with the massive attached kitchen and an ideal location if you're visiting Skye. When planning our trip we found the accommodation on Skye ridiculously over priced for what was on offer, stumbled across the School House thankfully and would highly recommend it. Easy... More

Myself and a friend had the pleasure of being hosted by the lovely and welcoming Mary Drummond, owner/operator of the The Schoolhouse. It is spotless, modern, cozy, and well-equipped with a gorgeous communal kitchen, and lovely shop/gallery brimming with local art, jewellery and other fun stuff. I bought most of my souvenirs for my entire 2 week UK trip there,... More
