Got here from the ferry port after a delayed crossing...over an hour late. It was a pitch dark night and the B&B took a bit of finding, but the directions were sufficient to make sure we didn't get too lost. Iain was waiting for us and welcomed us in, helping with the cases and stuff, and more to the point,...

This Guest House situated very conveniently for the Airport was a fabulous place to stay, Karen and Iain were the perfect hosts and despite the rather strong winds we enjoyed the view over the bay.from our balcony. We were sorry that we could only stay 2 nights but we managed to do all we wanted on the island. Highly recommend...

We received a warm welcome from Karen and Iain and were shown to our first floor room by Karen, the room was stunning with access to a seated veranda with fantastic views...

We have been travelling to the UK over many years and stayed in all sorts of nice B&B. But Solas has topped them all, it's such an amazing place to stay, Karen and Iain are extremely nice and welcoming hosts, you immediately feel like home, being a good friend or even a member of the family. The house is impeccable,...

What a wonderful place to stay the night (and longer if we could have done). Ian and Karen were perfect hosts making us feel like friends (rather than first night guests) right from the start. Everything was first class from the room with great views, excellent amenities and a very comfortable bed to the house itself, the great kitchen and...

The most beautiful B&B that I have ever seen. The hosts Ian and Karen are very friendly and hospitable. We can highly recommend this place! PS: It is very popular and often booked out. If available, we would recommend to book two or more nights.
