Wooden bunks (rather than the typical prison-style metal cage), several clean bathrooms, lots of hot water in the shower, very (very!) friendly hosts ... simply perfect! The price includes a small breakfast (toast, cereals, and your typical beverages), the common room is cozy and there also is a nice outside sitting area. Only 15 minutes by car to Eilean Donan...

We were looking for a cheap accomodation just outside Skye Island and we arrived there almost by chance. What a nice find! Although the location is pretty remote (no grocery store within 20 miles..so plan your food before arriving !) It is also a beautiful setting with a magnificient view and really cozy atmosphere in the living room! The kitchen... More

Stayed 3 nights in family room with en suite bathroom (9yr old and 4yr old). Very peaceful location overlooking Loch Carron and mountains. Stromeferry (no ferry!) is a tiny quaint Hamlet with a railway station. Very friendly laid back staff, v well-equipped kitchen, large comfy common room with games, books etc. Bedroom again comfy with bunks. Can use large BBQ... More

A warm welcome, we stayed 3 nights, very comfortable. Beautiful views across the loch and within easy reach of Skye, Torridon and many munros! They even provide breakfast. If it's chilly then the wood stove soon warms up the room. A very good place to stay.

I had a great time! The breakfast is tasty and the kitchen spacious. Also the owner is a friendly guy! I stayed with 3 friends and we had a room to ourselves with our own bathroom. It was tidy and in a lovely location. Also downstairs is a comfortable area with couches and games. It felt more like a bed... More

I have to start by saying that this is a beautiful house and the location is absolutely stunning. Overlooking the water it seemed so peaceful. Then the other guests started to arrive. Around 20 of them. We all squeezed into 1 house with 1 small kitchen (a particular problem given the remote location) and a few sofas. Peace and quiet... More
