There aren't many places where you can play a couple of sets of tennis at ten in the evening on a perfectly maintained lawn with an expanse of beach and distant mountains as a backdrop. Baile-na-cille (or Bally na Killa as it's roughly pronounced) is a Lonely Planet legend & convivial owner Mr Gollin delivers on all things eccentric. There's... More

I booked Baile-na-Cille because it has a family connection. The location of the guest house can only be described as dramatic. It is very remote, and situated in a stunning landscape. Our only regret was that our stay was much too short. The guest house is set up with all sorts of activities as well as having a stunning landscape... More

I am so thankful that I somehow stumbled across this hidden gem, and despite this review, I hope it stays this way. Baille na cille is a special place, and not one meant for people who can't appreciate its very unique and other worldy beauty and serenity. I wish my husband and I had more time here, but we truly...

This was a magical place where you feel you are welcomed into Richard's family. The set up for meals is really lovely as you get to meet people. Richard is a superb cook, we wished we had booked in for longer. This place must be visited if you are in the area and wanting accommodation and good food.

My husband and I stayed at Baile na Cille for just one night on our honeymoon. We had no difficulty finding it, as there are signs leading you to your destination. The views, and the beaches, are unbelievable. We had delicious venison, pâté, and some sort of amazing orange cake for dinner, and I had the best black pudding I... More

I have just returned from a splendid four night stay at Baile-na-Cille at the end of two weeks in the Highlands and Islands. Our stay here was the highlight of our entire holiday. I really wish that we had booked to stay longer this time, and already I am plotting another return visit next year (which, admittedly, is something I... More

We stayed here for a four night visit to the Isle of Lewis. This delightful b&b is situated beside a beautiful white sandy beach in the area of Timsgarry. Richard our host is most attentive and the food was delicious. Our room was in an annexe without a tv which we did not miss at all, we where too busy... More

You couldn't see anything for miles around but sunlit hills and an endless stretch of golden sands. Would you believe it, there wasn't even a chip shop or pub within walking distance? OK, so there was lots of wildlife and endless peace, all very well if that's the sort of thing you like. The room service was unreliable, and where... More

Beautiful location, delightfully quirky, friendly, superb food and excellent service. (Can't comment on the value for money as I'd paid for a group trip inclusive of transport costs.) If only the weather had been better....

What can I say about the guests of FSC who come to us? These groups are brilliantly planned and led. But often it is the guests and the group themselves who deserve all the praise. This group had just dreadful weather from start to finish and yet they all stayed positive; out with their binocs every evening trying to spot... More

It takes a while to get there; but it's well worth the effort! You'll find yourself in what must be one of the remotest hotels in the British Isles, with idyllic views across a broad bay. The accommodation is fine. But the sheer quality of the meals piovided by Richard, the friendly owner and chef, is really what makes your... More
