Stayed for 2 nights in August and had a wonderful time. Jayne and Ross were the perfect hosts and really looked after us. Jayne cooked a delicious, hearty breakfast which set us up for the day and supplied us with beautiful fresh white linen and towels. The place is immaculate and the views from the rooms are spectacular. We went... More

We only stayed 2 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. Jayne was a wonderful hostess - so helpful with tips on things to see and do. And we got to hear Ross play his bagpipes and had a great discussion about music. The breakfasts were just perfect. We stayed in the king room - quiet and spotlessly clean,... More

We had a very good stay at Jayne's B&B. Jayne and her husband (sorry don't remember his name) were very great! The room was clean, spacious and of course cozy. Breakfast was tasty and had a lot of choices. The smoked salmon/scrambled eggs is delicious ! Would definitely stay again if we have the chance !

Wonderful stay, really excellent facilities, very comfortable, very clean, lovely breakfast with homemade bread and yoghurt. Better than any other guest house or hotel we stayed in on the Hebrides, would thoroughly recommend.

What a lovely place. Right on the waters edge and Ross and Jayne have a treasure of a place to share with anyone who stays here. The attention to detail in the style and decoration of the room and house were quite nice. We had the added enjoyment of seeing Ross's workshop and hearing him play the bagpipes....very lovely.

Lovely Place. The Attention to detail in The King Size Bedroom with Large En-suite was excellent. Art Nouveau/Arts & Crafts Period Style.The Views of Skye, The Water & Skye Bridge from the bedroom Window where great. Very Nice breakfast. Choose this room if you can £40pppn well worth the little extra.

Ross & Jayne were great hosts. They've renovated the Ceol Na Mara into a beautiful place to stay. The bathroom is stunning (in the King room). We lucked out with weather because it was bright sunshine for most of out stay so the view across the water was spellbinding. Jayne chatted with us about things to see on Skye, places... More

My partner and I stayed in the Ceol na Mara 23-26 Feb 2016 and absolutely loved it. It was easy to find, right on the A87 with parking available (but it isn't noisy, the A87 is not a busy road at all). The views from both our bedroom and the breakfast room were breath-taking and ever changing with the weather.... More

Driving through the Highlands is a must when going to Scotland - extremely beautiful! But staying at Jayne and Ross' B&B made our trip complete. Absolutely wonderful people, very helpful, generous and kind. Very cosy and very nice accommodation and service. We will definitely come back to stay at Ceol Na Mara. We give this B&B the best recommendations.
