We had four nights here and had a wonderful time. Cathel served us some great breakfasts that put us on for the day. We had a double room lovey clean and spacious with a very good en suit shower. The house is central so it is easy to walk to restaurants for a meal at night. The Assynt area is... More

Cathel MacCloud is one of the nicest human beings I have ever met. Such a genuine person, his guest house is fabulous. Welcoming , spotless , comfortable , great breakfast. As someone else has said already look no further for accommodation in lochinver. Unbeatable local knowledge too.

Cathel looked after us so well, can't fault any aspect of his service. Great room, clean, plenty of space, lovely breakfast, and location wise it's pretty much in the dead center of Lochinver. Lovely place, and although this is not a place for those who don't like steps (it's on a steep hill) the height does mean you can open... More

We spent 2 nights here and had a lovely relaxing time. Cathel is a great host and we will definitely stay here on our next trip to Lochinver. The area of Assynt is truly beautiful with spectacular beaches. Hope to see you for lunch at Invermoriston at the end of the season.

Cathel - what a character and a great host ! Our room was very clean and brightly decorated, with comfortable beds. The en suite bathroom was a little small, but clean and adequate for our three day stay. Breakfasts were freshly cooked from an extensive menu, which you chose the night before. We would not hesitate to stay there again... More

There wasn't room for all of us at the place next door, so I stayed here. I loved it! The food was delicious, and I was well-pampered. The heavy curtains helped me not freak out when I woke up at 3am and it was light outside. It was easy walking distance into town. I recommend this place to everyone!

The B&B more than met our expectations re cleanliness, a comfortable bed and general facilities. However what makes it stand out is the warm welcome extended by the proprietor Cathel. My wife and I had a very early start and he provided cereal, fruit bread etc for us to help ourselves. The location is convenient and enough parking was available... More

We had a great two night stay in Lochinver. Cathel is the most charming host and a lovely man. His accommodation is first class, everything is immaculate, great showers, delicious breakfast and a central location. He is trying to sell the business so he can retire and it would be a great opportunity for someone wishing to relocate to the... More

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
