We stayed one night to break our long journey back from the outer Hebrides. We had over looked planning where to eat that night and it was late when we arrived. Linda did not hesitate in offering to feed my young family and made us most welcome in our two ensuite rooms. My husband and our two dogs had a... More

It was only a one night stay, so being right next to the main road wasn't a problem. The room was clean, comfortable and warm and I particularly liked the entrance with space for boots/shoes etc and for once a decent space for the tea and coffee making facilities. Breakfast was lovely and very nicely presented. Would like to visit... More

Beds where very comfy and rooms a decent size with a bathroom. We opted for the 2 course meal for dinner- (£14) and it was delicious! Comes highly recommend -... More

Very good value clean and comfortable bed and breakfast with evening meal option. Good food, well presented. Comfortable rooms with tea and coffee facilities and vestibule area for wet clothes (though no drying room as such for the latter). Friendly, obliging owners. Easy stroll to nightly entertainment in the bar of the Garve Country Hotel. Good access for Torridon where... More

Myself and friend have been to stay with Ray and Linda on countless occasions over the past few years. Every stay is the same, fantastic food, great company and a comfortable nights sleep. Each meal is served to a 5 star standard, and all hand crafted. If you are a vegetarian you can expect something particularly exciting and unexpected. I... More

Had an overall fantastic stay. Accomodation immaculate. Food amazing. Atmophere wonderful. Linda and Ray welcome you into their home and nothing is too much trouble. The location is fantastic with access to so many places within hour drive either north or south from dolphins to waterfalls. Good location for keen walkers or even if you just want to admire the...

Stayed for 2 nights in adjoining chalet-type room just off busy road. Room a bit dated and small but facilities adequate. Had 1 evening meal - nice but not as good as they had made out it would be. Great breakfast.

We stopped off to stay here en route to the Orkney islands and thoroughly recommend this lovely cottage and its friendly and kind owners. The accommodation is lovely: our rooms were next to the road, but we were not disturbed by traffic AT ALL and this was the height of the holiday season. Very comfortable accommodation, delightfully comfortable bed and... More
