“A great wee spot”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

We stayed here while visiting Eilean Doonan castle and I would recommend it to anyone with the same plan. It's cosy and comfortable with a great outlook...also reasonably priced. The only drawback, if there is one is the commual kitchen...but, hey, that's nothing when you are visiting such an amazing area.

Just had a really comfortable and enjoyable night at the schoolhouse. It was perfect accommodation and had the best furnishings and the standard is excellent. The hostess was very welcoming and the village is cool.

This is a self catering cottage, which means breakfast breads, cereals, coffee etc. are there in the full kitchen you have complete access to, and you help yourself. What a concept!! Mary provided us with a welcoming treat of homemade muffins on our first night's late arrival, and we found a nice treat of some kind in our "box" each night when we arrived back at the Schoolhouse from our explorations. We bought some food and added eggs to our breakfast, cooked a dinner and made lunches for our treks. It was great!

Our room was not particularly luxurious, but the Schoolhouse also is a small art gallery and the room was unique, with interesting and unique art and fabrics that made it different and special. The view was exquisite out of the front and off the kitchen. It was very comfortable and clean and in very good repair throughout. It was like having your own bedroom and bath at your very tasteful, artistically inclined, non interfering, Mom's house!

We wanted to explore the Isle of Skye and the Highlands and this was an excellent jumping off point for that as well. It is within walking distance to Eilean Donan Castle which took our breath away as we were driving in at night ( it is beautifully lit ). We easily explored all of the Isle of Skye, Inverness and Loch Ness. We enjoyed it so much we extended our stay another night.

This is a far cry from your cookie cutter hotels, but in a really good way. Mary is fabulous and so is The Schoolhouse. Highly recommend!!

Despite being pesky one night guests due to a CalMac ferry shambles, we were made to feel very welcome. Our room was lovely and self service breakfast suited us perfectly; local bread and some delicious cookies on arrival - thank you!

and a good sized communal kitchen for cooking any of your own meals. Clean, comfortable and uniquely charming, this b and b is connected with a wonderful little art gallery and coffee house. A perfect jumping off point for day trips to the Isle of Skye or other nearby towns. Mary was a perfect hostess providing us the some kitchen basics and wonderful home made cakes and pastries made my a German baker. I literally could spend a week in this place.

The Schoolhouse is in a lovely location and well placed as a base for a few days. The well- patronised local pubs were good places to enjoy an evening meal and a chat with locals. The room was neat and clean. We enjoyed delicious muffins with our breakfast provisions, but eggs were not provided. We had thought we had booked an upstairs room for the view, but were placed downstairs, which mean that our sleep was disturbed by noise of other guests upstairs.
