Visited the Gathering briefly five years ago and decided to re-visit again this year. Certainly not disappointed, Cara was delightful and nothing was too much trouble, she looked after myself and my Mother (85) very well. The hot-tub, with all that beautiful surrounding scenery, was amazing despite the inclement weather. We will certainly be back again.

Stayed at The Gathering for Hogmanay 2014. Firstly, Inverie really does know how to party!! We left the village hall at around 3am on the 1st Jan!!! Once again nothing was too much trouble for Cara. Spotlessly clean, great breakfasts, afternoon cakes, evening meals were also available. This was our 5th visit but the first one in winter. We loved... More

Loved our stay at The Gathering. Feels like a home from home. Our host Cara lives in the house behind so was close by if you needed anything. Had one of the upstairs rooms and it was quiet and spacious - loved the bathroom products too. Hot tub is a great addition to the accommocation for all weather and the... More

Saved our bacon after the disgraceful treatment of 'the old forge'. My wife and i had booked into 'the old forge' to be told on arrival it had closed. Jackie Robertson recommended we get booked into the gathering and at was excellent. We ate every night of the rest of our trip here. Wonderful service at short notice, will be... More

I wouldn't have missed staying at Inverie on Knoydart for anything. It was somewhat out of my way and took more time (because of the ferry schedule) out of one of my limited traveling days than I would have liked, but once I got there it was all well worth it. I was traveling alone, so be aware that Cara... More

On our trip through Scotland we luckily went to Knoydart. We stayed at the B&B The Gathering. It is a very pretty house with great views of the ocean. We had a room downstairs which was very comfy, big and superclean. There was two of us and yoga in the morning was no problem. On top of that we had... More

If you are a walker,wanting only a place to rest your head, then The Gathering may suit but if you are hoping for a little luxury (The Gathering does claim to offer 'premier' accommodation), you might be disappointed. Knoydart is lovely, the scenery is spectacular. The food at the pub and the coffee shop are good too. I booked a... More

As the owner, and the person with overall responsiblity for each of my guests enjoyment of their stay with me at The Gathering, I am both professionally and personally very disappointed to see that my guesthouse did not leave a good impression on you. I am also upset that your stay here was not the special journey that to date... More
