We recently took a trip with several other couples to the remote area of Scotland called Knoydart and stayed at the B&B The Gathering. It is beautiful, clean, friendly, roomy, and the proprietor, Cara, is really lovely. She also has a great staff and makes the most delisious breakfasts I've ever had. Just a wonderful place on a beautiful penninsula... More

The accommodation is spacious and very comfortable, the views are to die for, there's a hot tub (which we didn't use), the owner is friendly and unstintingly helpful, and the breakfasts are the best ever, anywhere. Packed lunches are also awesome. Just a pity I can't give it more than five because it really is in a different league from... More

Just returned from three nights in Inverie, Knoydart, staying at The Gathering and without a doubt this us the place to stay for anyone eager to explore this remote corner of Scotland but with a little homely luxury to return to at the end of the day. Myself and two friends stayed in the 4-man bunk room on the ground... More

A week's hillwalking from an ideal base. A well set building with a loch view. I enjoyed a comfortable ground floor en suite room, quality furniture throughout the house, and an very effective outside drying room. The breakfasts were excellent, including not only a wide variety of standard fare, but also a more exotic special of the day. And all... More

My wife and I spent 4 nights at this idyllic bed and breakfast expertly run by Cara and her team. Nothing was too much trouble and the breakfasts were beyond comparison. We even had an excellent dinner on Wednesday when the only pub in the village, The Old Forge takes the night off. The hot tub was a welcome indulgence... More

My husband and I have just returned from a weekend to celebrate the anniversary of some friends and stayed at The Gathering. The accommodation was excellent - comfortable, spacious and spotlessly clean as well as very conveniently located. The breakfast menu was amazing - a vast choice of fresh, very well cooked and presented food in pleasant surroundings. Cara, the... More

Cara took such good care of us, we didn't want to leave! The Gathering is a lovely place to spend a day or a week. Our room was extremely comfortable and roomy. The shower had plentiful hot water and awesome water pressure - perfect therapy after a long day of hiking in the hills. The hot tub was a bonus... More

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
