Carn-Raineach
Ranked #3 of 6 Applecross B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Seonag and Alistair (and their young son!) make a fantastic job of running this little B&B with commitment, alongside running the farm, the post office and the village shop! We were warmly greeted with tea and coffee and homemade shortbread and a chance to sit down, relax and chat. That's unusual and really nice - we felt at home immediately.

Our room and the ensuite bathroom were big, with the bedroom simply but cheerfully and tastefully decorated. The ensuite had a proper powerful shower and most importantly for us, everything was spotlessly clean. Carn-Raineach is a proper, authentic family B&B which still provided for our needs, like plenty of space for luggage and good wifi, and our hosts did it all with an effortless personal touch. Alistair kindly volunteered to drive us the few minutes back to the Applecross Inn for dinner, and even made arrangements with the management to be telephoned when we were finished, so that he could pick us up again promptly. What more can you ask for? Alistair, thanks again, that is going well beyond the call of duty!

Bed was comfortable, room warm, food plentiful. Much of the breakfast is own produce - Alistair could be spotted in the early morning out with the hens to collect our eggs. The view of Syke is breathtaking, the annexed post office and shop are very convenient, and the advice on walks and tourist tips were detailed. We enjoyed those two very refreshing days a lot and would not hesitate to recommend Carn-Raineach.

Room Tip: We were lucky enough to get the big room downstairs, which was great

We greatly enjoyed our stay with Alistair and Seonag who could not have been more welcoming. Our room was spotlessly clean and comfortable and it certainly is a room with a view across the sea to Skye. We would definitely recommend Carn Raineach to others as a place from which to enjoy the peace and quiet of the Applecross Peninsula. Our only regret we couldn't stay longer, as the north coast called!

Great b&b and a wonderfull family, they were very helpful and kind with everything. The room was clean and fresh and the ensuite was lovely and the breakfast-wow, we were well set for our day ahead after that, nice local produce and a plate full. Just hope it wont be too long until we return again.

If you are looking for a B&B in the Applecross area then this is the place to go. Lovely accommodation, owned by a lovely family who couldn't have been more welcoming, friendly or helpful. Great breakfast as well! Thanks Seonagh and Alistair - looking forward to staying with you again soon. Judith & Fraser

A 15 min walk from the Applecross Inn brings you to a small settlement and an essential local stores. The B and B is part of this so you feel very local and involved. Hosts couldn't be more helpful and accommodating. Highly recommended!

... to have stayed with this lovely family, in a lovely house, in a lovely corner of the world. It's 20 minutes' walk to the Applecross Inn, but we were lucky in that the weather was excellent and so the exercise was welcome! The room we had was well equipped and comfortable, with an unbelievable view. Very enjoyable, and highly recommended.
