We arrived wet, tired and with a broken bike. Ron sorted us out. He introduced us to his dog,hens and hand reared lamb and welcomed us into his beautifully kept croft. He gave us a lift to the pub in the evening and the following morning served the best breakfast we had on our long 3 week cycle ride, with... More

This is an amazing location & we wished that we could have stayed for much longer than 1 night, it is such a pity that we only found out about Ron's accommodation from a local when we arrived there late in the afternoon. We had a cabin for 4 people which is separate from the B&B with "trillion dollar views",... More

Ron is a wonderfully enthusiastic host and his breakfasts are delicious. The view from the bedrooms is staggering. We spent two nights in idyllic weather wandering the north west coast and Ron's B&B is ideal for reaching everything in the area and a haven of beautiful bird song and bleating lambs. Nearby Handa Island is a spectacular bird spotting reserve... More

Such a beautiful location, looking out over Badcall Bay, and surrounding mountains. Sharing his knowledge of the area, Ron made my stay the highlight of a month long visit to Scotland. His homemade breakfasts with home made sausage and eggs from his hens were out of this world! Fantastic coastal walks and mountain hiking, and endless photo possibilities! A wonderful... More

Everything was perfect. It was the situation- isolated, quiet and beautiful- that made us decide to make this home for a week and thanks to Ron's local knowledge we feel we did the area justice. Loved Handa Island and fresh salmon . Great relaxing spot. Very well run.

My boyfriend and I stayed in Ron's cosy B&B and it was even better than expected. The view was absolutely stunning and the room was very tidy and comfortable. Ron gave us a lot of tips where to go and what to do, even taking his time to draw a detailed map of one of the nearby beaches. The breakfast... More

We went to stay at Stonechats Croft for two days and were made welcome by the one and only "Rocket" Ron, someone whom you really must meet. His cooked breakfasts were delicious with fresh eggs from his chickens. Our bedroom was very clean and comfortable with a wonderful view of the mountains, lochs and sea. This place should not be...

The view from Ron's B&B is the most spectacular view. We traveled from Israel and Ron and his wife's hospitality has been heartwarming. During our trip to the highlands our stay in Ron's B&B was definitely the highlight of our trip.

A wonderful location and a friendly welcome make Stonechats well worth a visit. Ron and Elaine have a fabulous view from Upper Badcall, and are keen to share it, and welcome you to their home. Ron will ensure that you get the most from your stay with local reviews, advice and help.

Myself and my eight year old daughter spent a week with Ron; one night in the croft and the rest of the time in a park home. The accommodation was clean and well presented. The park home in particular looked new and was very well maintained. The views from the croft were spectacular. Ron was friendly, helpful and always on... More
