Stayed here at the weekend for a 2 night break. The house is stunning and the owners obviously know how to look after their guests. This is the nicest place we have ever stayed. Everything about it is just so right. This is an old house with many quirky features. It is far and away better than higher rated properties. Order a coffee and it comes with slices of homemade shortbread and homemade Scottish tablet. Staff are first class. It's easy ti underestimate how much hard work goes into looking after guests in a hotel. The phrase 'if you need anything, just ask' is not just a throwaway comment in this hotel. We were there on a Spring deal but I can easily see why you would be prepared to pay the rack rate. The food is delicious. Also, if you want to add, or to leave something out, of a dish this is no problem. All cooked to order from the best ingredients. On our first morning we had the full breakfast. Every part of this was delicious, the black pudding and haggis especially so for us. On the second morning we selected the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon. We asked if we could have a slice of black pudding and haggis with this. Commented to the waitress that this must seem a bit odd. The response was 'No! It's whatever you enjoy'. We wouldn't usually feel comfortable making such a request but Coul House makes you feel so at home and so comfortable. During our stay we took a drive up to Ullapool and on up to see the Summer Isles off Achiltibuie. Found a bar called Am Fuaran, run by a family for decades. We had hand dived scallops for starters and creel caught langoustine. This drive has breathtaking scenery, if you follow satnav to Am Fuaran you will see one of the most beautiful beaches off to your right before the first small village you come to. I could go on and on about our trip but finally I must say that I cannot believe how much of a delight, and privilege it was to spend time at Coul House. We hope to return.
