A really nice little B&B, perfectly located within the town. The owner, Cathel, was a charming host--and a great cook! (He makes the breakfasts in the morning.) It's not fancy but it was very comfortable and extremely reasonably priced.

This is certainly one of the best B & B's we have stayed in. Cathel was very interesting and extremely friendly host - and he cooked an excellent breakfast as well. It is situated in the centre of Lochinver and is any easy walk to the harbour. The rooms were spotless, the beds very comfortable and the area quite -... More

I stayed here for two nights earlier this month and can thoroughly recommend it. The owner, Cathel Macleod, is very welcoming and you soon feel you have known him for years.. The house is spotlessly clean and the excellent breakfasts set you up for the day. Polcraig has everything you need for a comfortable stay, and the whole Assynt area... More

Cathel is the perfect Host! We stayed three nights and enjoyed three fabulous "Full Scottish" breakfasts. Our room was clean, cosy and comfortable with good wifi access. Well placed near the centre of the village with a good view of the harbour. Would definitely stay there again.

This is a wonderful b&b I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay. The owner (Cathal) welcomed us so warmly into the b&b. He gave us lovely bedrooms and a delicious breakfast. As well as this it had a wonderful view of the sea. We all loved it here.

We stayed for one night at Polcraig during our tour of the Scottish Highlands. This is a wonderful place to spend an evening away from home. The proprietor, Mr McCleod, is a wonderful host. His greeting is so warm and he cannot do enough for his guests. We were fortunate to be allocated room 6 which is a beautiful double... More

If staying in Lochinver I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Polcraig House. Good location, plenty or parking, absolutely spotless, comfy bed, good showers and tasty freshly cooked breakfast! What more can you ask for? Cathel is also very knowledgeable on local fishing and happy to point you in the direction of where best to have a cast.
