We had three nights at Polcraig while up in the north of Scotland tackling a few mountains like Suilven and visiting the gorgeous, but remote, Sandwood Bay. Cathel looked after us very well with excellent breakfasts to start us off through the day on our long hikes. Polcraig is very conveniently situated in the centre of the village and has... More

We stayed one night at Polcraig without a prior booking. Cathel was an excellent host. The rooms were very clean and well-appointed. Breakfast was excellent and cooked by Cathel. A screen on the shower , rather than the plastic curtain, would have given more room and ease when showering but overall it was a great choice of B and B.

We booked a room at Cathel's Polcraig GH at the last minute and we were lucky he had one room left for us. The GH is well situated in the village. Cathel is very welcoming and will be the person to speak to if you like fishing. The room we were given was on the small size (especially with a... More

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!
