We stayed 2 nights at this bed and breakfast. The owner was very friendly and the accomodations were clean and nicely decorated. This is a great place to stay to tour Skye or Eilean Donan. Can't wait to return.

We stayed at this little B&B for one night on a tour of Scotland last week and would definitely recommend it. Our room was very clean, newly decorated and well-equipped. It wasn't en suite (cos the en suite double was already booked when we enquired) but the bathroom was only shared with one other room (a twin) which wasn't occupied... More
