“Excellent Bed & Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

We stayed three nights at the Sithean, Lochcarron.
Lorna and Ken made us very welcome in their home, greeting us with tea and cake on our return each evening. We had the use of a lovely lounge overlooking Lochcarron where we could sip our wine , chilled by our hosts. There is a wonderful view across the Loch as the house is up a small steep drive. The bedroom was very comfortable with a lovely ensuite and comfortable bedding. The breakfast was plentiful and excellent. There are not many restaurants locally so it was not easy to find a different restaurant each night. An excellent B& B for a short stay.

Where does one start with the superlatives? The Sithean has just 2 rooms and the one we styaed in was simply perfect. Everything in the room was of a quality which would put many large hotels to shame and there were so many tiny details which added to the enjoyment of our stay. I would guess that the other guest room is of equal quality. The proprietors are friendly and welcoming at all times. A lovely cup of coffee (and Lorna's mouth-watering lemon drizzle cake) were offered on arrival and on every evening when we came in. There is a resident's lounge with beautiful views over Loch Carron (the house is a short way uphill ablove the road). The breakfast's are utterly delightful with a remarkable variety on offer and the quality of the food is of the highest. All in all an oustandingly good place to stay - if it were possible to award a level beyond excellent it would be deserved.

Room Tip: The 'sea view' room has glorious views over Loch Carron.

We stayed for three nights, and were very pleased with our stay. Our room was comfortable and the guest lounge had a lovely view over the loch. Breakfast was excellent. It was also very welcoming to be offered tea and cake when we arrive back each day.

We had a lovely couple of nights here! Absolutely spotless, warm,tasty breakfast, and views to die for from the guest lounge! Our hosts were very helpful and provided tea and cake when we got in each evening! Would recommend it thoroughly!

We spent one night at the Sithean in Lochcarron on our drive south along the coast. The Sithean is a family home with its guest bedrooms on the main floor, family lives up above. Our room was clean and simply furnished. Their website is accurate. We were not too impressed with Lochcarron, however. We were told there was a pub out of town that served food, but when we located the pub we discovered the kitchen was closed on a Saturday night. Back into Lochcarron to find a spot for dinner and ended up at the Bistro. Our meal was fine, but we kept feeling that the town wasn’t particularly friendly to outsiders. Breakfast the next morning was quite good. We enjoyed chatting with the other couple staying there.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Sea View Room.

Stayed here for a couple of nights on our tour of Scotland. I must say that this is the Best, Cleanest & Most Comfy B&B I've Ever Stayed & a Host who couldn't do enough for you. I Would Recommend The Sithean to Anybody & Give it 10 out of 10.(I even Overpaid it was that good).
Thanks for a Wonderful Stay & Hope to be Back.

We stayed here for one night before going over to Skye. The room was lovely, beautifully decorated with a really nice en-suite. We had a lovely welcome with coffee and cakes. This is the cleanest B&B or hotel I have ever seen, not a speck of dust anywhere. The house is spacious with fantastic views, the breakfast was cooked to order and delicious. Will definitely visit again.
