Pleased to see everyone thinks the same about this place. I stayed for one night on a business trip. Beautiful views, really handy location, and immaculate house. Huge room, bathroom and balcony and decor is stunning - really high quality. As a lone female traveller on business I loved working with the uninterrupted views to the sea, really decent wifi...

It is no surprise to me that this is a 5 out of 5 guest house - everything about my stay here was perfect. The views are tremendous, the room was comfortable, exceptionally clean and Ian and Karen could not have provided a warmer welcome. Only complaint is that I cannot buy the sausages that Ian makes himself and cooks... More

Had a very pleasant night here.. would have liked to stay longer. Karen and Ian made us feel really at home and suggested a few things to do while on the island which proved to be very sound advice. Thanks

This bed and breakfast is fabulous, and so are the people who own it. It's a beautiful house, our room was amazing, and nice views too. We had encoutered some trouble with our travel plans just as we got here, and the owners, who never met us before, went above and beyond to help us out. It was just amazing.... More

Iain and Karen were wonderful! Very welcoming and informative. The room was nice and private with remodeled en suite bath. The view was amazing - straight, clear view to the ocean and breaking waves. The breakfast was superb with plenty of options. Location couldn't be better, far enough out for good views and quiet, but only about 5-10 minutes from... More

.....realising a long held 'ambition' we finally completed the classic Outer Hebrides/Cape Wrath/'top end'/Orkneys journey, one of the most rewarding and enjoyable we have ever undertaken - and with a 'decent breeze' blowing onshore for most of the time the midgies were largely kept at bay! Privileged to have stayed at some stunning places around the Globe, I must say... More

I cannot say enough great things about this place. Modern, updated, awesome food and absolutely lovely. If you want top notch accomodiations, this is your place. The rooms all have beautiful views of the water and great sitting areas outside each room. The layout of the rooms is great. The bedroom and bathrooms are divided by a closet area so... More

We were welcomed into the house by Karen and shown around our room. It is the biggest and best room I have ever stayed in and over the years and on this trip, I have stayed in a few. The bed was huge and there was a balcony which opened out onto a sea view. There was a huge walk... More

Myself and my husband visited Stornoway as our last stop on a tour of the Outer Hebrides and we couldn't have landed at a better place than Solas. Absolutley perfect in every way, the room was very spacious and immaculate with huge shower and a generous supply of coffee, tea, hot chocolate and biscuits. Iain and Karen were the perfect... More
