Great location for access to Skye and Wester Ross. The hosts are really helpful with local knowledge and tales. Superb breakfast and comfortable MacKintosh/nouveau/deco styled accomodation. Ross's workshop was worth the visit alone ( Traditional pipes ). Enjoyed every minute. 5 nights of escapism ! ! !

We stayed one night here. Wish it had been more! Its such a lovely area and Ross and Jayne were so warm and welcoming. Ross not only played his pipes for us in the morning but also some of his albums. It was a great experience. We would definitely stay here again.

My wife and I stayed in the standard double room for three nights in July 2013. This place was amazing. My wife loved the decor and the views of the loch from the property were great. Location was great, away from the hustle and bustle with parking readily available across the street, but close to the shops of Kyle of... More

My husband and I stayed at Ceol Na Mara for two nights last week. We unexpectedly stumbled upon the property, and thankfully they had availability! The house is stunning - quite large with beautiful interior design (I particularly loved the high-backed chairs in the dining area). It sits right across the street from the water, so the views are spectacular.... More

Stayed in the king room, it was warm and comfortable, with views over the bay. Breakfast was excellent and set us up for the day. Ross was a great host and gave us loads of ideas of where to visit. Would stay again in a heartbeat.
