Stayed for only one night but we would have stayed on if time had permitted. The room was well nigh perfect in all respects with a clear view of floodlit Eilean Donan. Breakfast was very good indeed also. Dot has been criticised, we think unfairly, for perhaps appearing unfriendly at first. She does have a slight reserve but this is... More

Rooms are very spacious, clean and smell of fresh linens. We were given 2 rooms, both with a view of Eilean Donan Castle from the windows - looks amazing in the evening. Dot was nice and friendly and recommended the Clachan Pub, very close to the B&B for drinks and dinner. A very busy pub that serves good, fresh tasting... More

Had a nice stay at this B and B, good sized room with a nice ensuite. Breakfast was good and well cooked. Lovely views and within easy walking distance (about 3 minutes) to a friendly pub for a nice evening meal. Plenty of parking space.

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
