I arrived in a group of five and we were instantly made welcome by Cara the owner. The rooms were warm, comfortable and well equipped and the breakfasts were a gourmet's dream. Everything worked, the showers were hot and powerful and there was a drying shed for wet boots and clothing. If you like scaling your Munros from a base... More

The Gathering really is the ideal place to stay when exploring wild Knoydart, with Cara providing service second to none with high quality accommodation and food, plus great conversation. The hot tub eases the strain after a day in the hills and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast is a delight with coffee to die for and all is topped... More

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

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

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
