A warm welcome from host Cara began a wonderful three-night stay at this very clean and comfortable establishment, overlooking Loch Nevis (which means 'Heaven'). Cara was so helpful and advised us on where to eat and how to get around this remote peninsula. The room was spacious and very comfortable, with sofa, TV, and two sets of bunk beds, so... More

We visited Knoydart for a family wedding in August and were fortunate enough to have been booked into The Gathering by the organisers. Couldn't recommend it too highly ! It's very convenient for the ferry landing and as all the reviews confirm it offers a high standard of care and comfort. Special mention should be made of your host Cara... More

I stayed for one night with two friends. The property is immaculate. The rooms are spotless. It's obvious that Cara puts a great deal of thought and effort into everything associated with The Gathering from the website design to the games chest to the signs pointing the way to the property. Every small detail has been considered. It's just really... More

I stayed here with some family for a small reunion in late July. The accommodation is spacious, very clean, comfortable and well maintained. We had a family room on the ground floor with double bunk beds, sofa and DVD player, ensuite shower/bathroom. Cara made us very welcome and we were able to relax in the sitting room which overlooks the... More

We had 3 lovely nights at the Gathering. Cara picked up our luggage as we came off the ferry, and from then on we were so well looked after, it was fantastic. Cara runs a beautiful, clean, friendly house and cooks THE most wonderful breakfasts. There is a really warm atmosphere at the Gathering. It was hard to leave, and... More

Extremely comfortable, warm and welcoming. The accommodation was spacious, clean and comfy in a great location and breakfast delicious. The bedroom was huge and decor was simple and tasteful. The day lounge overlooking the Bay was very relaxing and peaceful. Cara was very friendly and happily arranged taxis, luggage transfers and nothing was a problem for her. Would highly recommend...

We arrived to meet Cara, our host on the pier with her Land Rover to take our bags the 200 yard journey to the house. We had a coffee and a biscuit in the sun room over looking Loch Ness, beautiful. The house was spotless and felt like we had the run of the place, it was great. Breakfast was... More

Due to some last minute changes in holiday plans, mainly around a trip to St. Kilda, we only had a three day window of time to stay on Knoydart. Fortunately, Cara had one night open at The Gathering, and we took advantage of it. We took an early Western Isles boat out to Inverie, and met Cara at the pier.... More
