We stayed with Ken and Gwendy for four nights in June and could not have had a better experience. Their croft is lovely, overlooking the Sound with views to Skye, Rassay, and Rona. Our room had a beautiful view and our bed was a dream to sleep in. Gwendy and Ken go overboard for breakfast - homemade bread, kippers, bacon... More

Stayed with Gwendy & Ken with our (relatively) new-born for a night back in March - we're seasoned travellers to the Highlands & Islands, but this was our first time B&B with a baby. Gwendy could not have been more welcoming.. family-type room with a shared bathroom, lovely views across to Rona. The house itself is not for you if... More

The house is very remote, near just 2 or 3 other houses and 15 minutes drive from Applecross, a tiny village with a row of houses, a pub, a small shop, a restaurant and a hotel. The nearest town is probably at least one hour of narrow mountains roads away. The surroundings are spectacular with sea, hills and view of... More

Welcoming and very comfortable accommodation, just a few miles from Applecross in a very peaceful location. The room is spacious and relaxing,and I slept like a log in the comfortable bed. And, what an amazing sea view from the bedroom window! Gwendy's breakfast is really good, especially the venison sausages. We didn't get to meet Ken this time, but Charlie... More

Ken and Gwendy are such lovely people and have the 'light touch' of the perfect B & B host - they know exactly when to give you space, but are on hand to give great advice, tips, local info and they are so friendly! The place is gorgeous, what a lovely peaceful spot - great for walkers, wildlife spotters, anyone... More

Wonderful location about 7 miles north of Applecross. Ken and Gwendy are the perfect hosts. Breakfast very filling and great choice. Views from the room overlooking Rona, Raasay and Skye are stunning. Room is very comfortable.

What a great B&B! We had a lovely room, with amazing views over the Sound to Rona and Raasay, and the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in in a B&B. The house is on a croft, just above the sea at Lonbain and is peace a quiet personified. Gwendy and Ken are lovely hosts, and provided amazing breakfasts (try... More
