Very nice place and kind accommodation! Our bedroom had a very kind view on loch and sundowner.. The breakfast is fantastic with homemade marmelade, a large choice of fruit, tea... The pub associated to the hotel is also excellent with simple and very well prepared food and we had the pleasure to heard a music group..

We were touring Scotland in a camper van, and fancied a blow-out breakfast. Tigh an Eilean will take in people for breakfast if they've room. We paid under a tenner each for fresh coffee, enormous bowls of fresh fruit, fruit loaf, yoghurt, cereals, toast and home-made marmalade and amazing prunes done with spices and lemons. It was so good we... More

We only stayed one night here but liked this small hotel a lot. The room was comfy and clean with a large bathroom (apart from the fact that there wasn't a proper stand-up shower). No TV in the room (quite refreshing) but there's one in the very cosy lounge. The food in the adjacent restaurant (Coastal Kitchen) was excellent (the... More

There was an air of shabbiness about the reception area and a very 'off' smell. We were shown our room right at the far end of the building with a view over the loch as requested. We couldn't get the wifi to work which is a vital requirement for us due to personal reasons and we were told it doesn't... More
