We stayed at the Solar during the Easter holiday and it is fair to say this is an exceptional guest house. It is extremely convenient to the Airport and we were given a very warm welcome by the owners, Ian and Karen and shown through the their beautiful home to our room that was as breathtaking as the views from...

B & B does not come better than this! Karen and Ian are the perfect hosts - warm, welcoming and so friendly and their house is stunning. Beautifully equipped in a stunning location with panoramic views from the bedroom balconies. But what makes it truly special are the hosts - they could not have been nicer and went out of... More

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

such charming hosts - who have a very smart house we were very comfortable indeed - breakfast was fantastic and Iain and Karen were delightful and informative - and then went beyond the call too! Thank you for making us so welcome.
