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.
