The landlord is a very nice widower who warmly welcomed us in his cosy abode. Our room was typically Scottish in the choice of colours, materials & furniture and had a great view on Lochinver harbour, which is within easy walking distance (look out for the bobbing seal !), as well as commendable eating facilities. We had a plentiful and... More

Cathel looked after us very well, nothing was to much and he provided us a great breakfast at the times we requested. Very clean, comfortable and warm. Nice welcome and very reasonable on the pricing side of things.

Polcraig is a very nice bed and breakfast, with a wonderful host, clean rooms, comfortable beds, in a great location with a delicious breakfast. Lochinver really is a beautiful village - but plan on eating dinner early! The restaurants close early, and are busy! We stayed almost the last weekend of 'the season' and the place seemed busy and happy.... More

I'm sorry this review is so late. My husband and I stayed at Polcraig for three nights from 24th September and found our stay to be one of our most memorable experiences overseas. The house is beautiful, spotlessly clean and comfortable in a quaint little town, peaceful and quiet where one can chill out for a few days and enjoy... More

Polcraig is a lovely B&B located close to the center of Lochinver. Rooms are spacious, comfortable, and sparkle clean, and the cooked breakfast is one of the best I had in Scotland. The owner (who is a former policeman!) is very welcoming and full of tips and information to visit the highlands. There are a few restaurants within walking distance... More

Stayed here for two nights as a convenient base for climbing the impressive mountain of Suilven a few miles away. With a comfortable bed, good shower, hearty breakfast and spotlessly clean, I would highly recommend this excellent B&B, which is centrally located in the village of Lochinver. The owner Cathel is an ex-Highlands bobby and quite a character. Friendly, welcoming... More

Extremely comfortable room (4) with good shower and plenty of space, including two comfy chairs. We found it late on a Sunday afternoon and were delighted to find there was a room spare. On a 2,500 mile trip around the highlands and islands of Scotland this was one of the best places we stayed in, comparable to, and in some... More

I thought this b&b was excellent in almost all respects: Cathel, the owner, was extraordinarily helpful, the room and en-suite were well-planned and spotless, the shower was great, breakfast was perfect..BUT the mattress in bedroom 5 was very uncomfortable. I could feel the springs digging into me, and struggled to sleep well. It's such a shame to have something so... More

A lovely place to stay. The host was, it seems, a third of a century upholding law and order and has the geniality and humour one would hope a man of good human spirit would retain and impart of such experience (s). Genuine good. Tis an excellent breakfast that sets you up for the day too. I cannot recommend Polcraig... More

Cathel is a fine host and nothing is too much trouble. He always finds time for his guests however busy he is. Our room was spotless and very comfortable. The breakfast was great too , as other reviewers say. One reviewer mentions the price being a bit high. We didn't think so, given the overall quality but I suppose it... More
