Donan House is an excellent bed and breakfast. Dot and Jim were fantastic hosts - warm and welcoming but not intrusive and very helpful with suggestions of things to do and places to dine. Our room was large, clean, light and airy and beds were very comfortable. The full breakfast was generous and everything cooked to perfection, with a good... More

We stayed for 3 nights from Saturday 19th October 2013 and had an exceptional break. The rooms are tastefully decorated, clean and warm. The cooked breakfast kept us going until the mid afternoon. Jim gave very helpful advice when we were going to Skye for a few hours walking. We would book Donan House again without any hesitation next time... More

A very friendly place to stay. A perfect view of Eilean Donan Castle. The hosts had a brilliant knowledge of all the attractions in the area. We were on a motor bike and we had parking in the garage. our room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was super

A very quaint and lovely place right across from Eilean Donan castle. If this is what you came to Dornie to see, then you will get a lot of it. The hosts were very accommodating, allowing us to drop off our luggage early before the room was available, and prepared a very substantial breakfast. The room itself was very modern... More

We were booked at at different guesthouse, but they were without water and thankfully they rebooked us at the Donan House. We arrived late and Jim greeted us and showed us to our room, he was very friendly, especially for the hour! The room is nice, modern, and cleanish... there were spiders in the room, I killed 3-4, they were... More

Definitely one of our highlights in visiting Scotland. I can't say enough good things about the owners, Jim and Dot. My husband and I rented a car and unfortunately got a flat tire on our way to the Donan House. When we arrived, Jim took my husband into town for him to buy a new tire and when we returned,... More

This B&B is perfect at all levels!!!! It is highly commendable!!!! We've got an extremely nice welcome and enjoyed a copious breakfast. The house, which is globally very pleasant, has a complete equipment and is in addition very quiet and located in a very quite area. The owners provide very good tips for walks in the mountains.

I found this B&B, after a thorough search for accomodation near to Skye, but on the mainland. I was glad I found this place. Firstly, the views from my friends bedroom was perfect, looking staight out over Eilean Donan Castle. Given, that one of them had taken the same trip with me 18 years previous, I was so happy she...
