If you are in the area, you can't go wrong with Craigvar. The hosts, accommodations and location were superb. Exceedingly clean room and bathroom. The breakfast was delicious and very filling. They gave me a great recommendation for dinner and were kind and friendly. This was one of my top three places to stay in Scotland.

The breakfast menu was really something else, and the food was perfectly prepared and presented. You will need to diet when you return home. There was a superb sitting room for you...

Beautiful building, rooms and furnishings. There was a bathtub in my room - great to relax! The owners/managers are lovely people. Delicious breakfast. Awesome surrounding countryside and only about an hour from Ullapool if you're catching an early ferry.
