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

Stayed for three nights , 6,7, 8th July2015. Dot and Jim made us very welcome . The accomodation is top quality and the view from our room out onto Eilan Donan Castle could not have been better . Breakfast was superb , a thoroughly enjoyable stay.

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.

This is an amazing place to stay. Extremely clean everywhere with fab miniatures in bathroom. Sky tv not that you will watch it much with the view and Dot and Jim were great hosts. My dad absolutely loved it too as his favourite place. Dot very accommodating and can't wait to come back. Breakfast was lovely cereals with yogurts and... More

You can also have a view from your bedroom :) The room was clean, well equipped and very... More

This B&B had the most beautiful view of Eileen Donan Caslte from our room as well as from the breakfast nook. The 3 guest rooms are all located upstairs in this newer construction home, which for us was not a problem. Our room was spacious with two sitting chairs. It had an extra twin bed available to accomodate families. The... More

I booked this B&B because of its views of Eilean Donan Castle and wow what a view. Dot and Jim, the owners, were so nice and hospitable. Our room was clean and comfortable and had a view of the flood lit castle. Breakfast was great and a lot of effort in catering for me as I don't eat meat. I... More
