Stayed 2 nights June 21/22 this year, would have been nice to stay longer. Great hosts, found towns we had been in in the past. Wonderful scenery and long, long daylight. Easy walk to the local hotel/pub for dinner.

We arrived on a hellishly cold and windy day on the north coast of Scotland but we received a warm welcome from Bob. We'd managed to book through the tourist centre in Durness and then made our way to Talmine. We had a lovely dinner at the local Craggan Hotel and then another fabulous meal, this time breakfast, served by... More

This was our second stay at the Cloisters, we had been there in 2002 and we were very happy with our decision to return. The place is clean and comfortable with excellent breakfast foods prepared daily. The B & B is purpose built with the rooms in a separate building that look architecturally similar to the main building which had... More

Cloisters were warmly recommended by friends and we found that they had not exaggerated at all. It is a peaceful place with wonderful hosts. We enjoyed the quietness of the room that is a result of the experience of Bob as architect who designed the guest house himself. In addition the weather was fine so we could take a walk... More

A lovely setting, great room, good bathroom and wonderful breakfast. Very hospitable hosts and very helpful with regard to finding where to eat for evening meal. Nothing was too much trouble. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We really enjoyed our stay at The Cloisters Our room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. If you want to get away from it all, this is the place. Bob and Audrey are very hospitable and provided a delicious breakfast. I would highly recommend The Cloisters. Thank you Bob and Audrey for everything. We hope to return sometime.

We spent abaut 10 awesome days at Cloisters, which is located absolutely perfect about twenty meters above the sea near the village Tongue. The room was very nice, comfortable and clean. Even a TV and w-lan was included. Sitting a the breakfast table, you have a beautiful view over the Kyle of Tongue, one day cannot start any better. Big... More

Heard about the Cloisters from the Lonely Planet book and we had a wonderful stay. Normally closed throughout the winter period, my aunt was able to contact the owners who opened it for us so we could enjoy Hogmanay festivities in the north of Scotland. We had a wonderful firework show and a very festive evening hosted by Bob &... More
