My dad and I stayed here a few years ago and loved both the locale and the amazing views of the castle, Eilean Donan, which is literally right across the street! For my honeymoon, my husband and I chose to book here again knowing of its views and proximity to Skye. It is a bit of a drive to get... More

We have stayed in many, many B&B's in the U.K. but none finer than this! It is located in the very small village of Dornie but I would go out of my way to stay there again. Dot and Jim were excellent hosts serving an excellent breakfast and providing good recommendations as to where to eat. The rooms were immaculate!!... More

Dornie is a small town - Eileen Donan Castle the only highlight. Donan House is fair, with nothing really wrong but not great either. Room was a good size, service fair to good, cleanliness fair to good.

I chose this place because of it's location near the Eilean Donan castle. After reading several reviews I made sure to call at 4:30 and tell Dot that I had arrived in the area but was gong to tour the castle before checking in. I did this to make sure she would hold the room for me. The room was... More

Dot has her home decorated beautifully, and she takes pride in welcoming guests. We truly enjoyed our stay, and had a wonderful breakfast. You can walk to Eilean Donan or to Dornie. She does not accept credit cards.

Excellent location at the foot of Eilean Donan Castle. We had a room that looked out right at the Castle. Our room was clean and well decorated. Bathroom was ample, as was the shower stall (ensuite bathroom). Very comfortable. Dot was friendly and helpful.
