Stayed just the one night but was made very welcome by the delightful Mary. Room was comfortable. In the morning there was a great choice of three types of breakfast. I had the traditional cooked breakfast which was excellent and was preceded by muesli with homemade yoghurt. All was delicious. Overall a lovely b&b, great value, high standard, and a... More

A pleasant stay with great breakfasts each day. Convenient location for driving to the Isle of Skye (about a 10 minute drive to the bridge). We received a warm welcome from Mary who was very helpful during our stay. Rooms were comfortable and clean.

We spent 3 nights here and we're delighted with all aspects of our stay. Mary is keen to help with local advice and there are several pubs in the area for your evening meal. The rooms are good and the breakfast choice is excellent. Being just off the main road it is nice and quiet in the evening. The property... More

The proprietor, Mary Moran, was very cordial and helped us plan our outings each day. The breakfasts were all wonderful, fresh baking, eggs, meats, juices, tea, coffee, home made yogurt and Scottish specialties. The room had a stunning view of Castle Eilean Donan and the water. The breakfast room and guest lounge also had beautiful views and were beautifully furnished.... More

We stayed here for 3 nights at Eilean a Cheo Guest House which I have say was excellent. Mary made us feel very welcome. We had a Room overlooking Eilean Donan Castle which is only 10-15 minutes walk away over the Dornie Bridge. We enjoyed our highland breakfasts every morning. Eilean a Cheo Guest House is in a quiet location... More

This was the second time we had stayed in the Eilean a cheo. We stayed just the 1 night as a stop off on our way home from having a wonderful time on Lewis and Harris. The room was lovely and clean and tea and coffee was on offer that's all we needed. Mary is very welcoming and helpful with... More

My parents, two sisters and I thought that this guesthouse was absolutely superb. The beds were really comfortable, bathrooms great, carefully chosen biscuits with the in-room coffee and tea, there was a nice sitting room downstairs and the whole place was very clean, tidy and pretty. Of the three breakfast choices we were given we all chose the continental breakfast,... More

It was a shame we spent only one night there. Everything was wonderful. Our rooms were fantastic, comfortable and cosy, very clean, new and beautiful. We even had views to the Eilean Donan Castle. Breakfast was amazing. We had freshly cooked breakfast (scramble eggs with salmon!) and homemade yoghurt and marmalades. Mary was lovely. She was very helpful. As we... More

We spent 2 nights here during our travels through the Scottish highlands. Mary takes excellent care of guests, the rooms are very modern and clean. We loved her towel-origami-animals ;). The room even has a small fridge. We had a lovely sight on the Loch. Quiet nights and a lovely, big bed. Freshly cooked breakfast (no buffet) that was really... More
