A warm welcome from our hostess, Ann, awaited our very long journeys end. A very sumptuous bed with views over stunning landscapes & en-suite bathroom giving us ample room to relax after our hiking adventures.
Perfect location for walking from the door. Breakfasts are very flavoursome using local produce. Ann's home made bread & jam are delicious & far better than commercial items. Very Eco & sustainability aware, so very refreshing. Cannot fault at all. Torridon restaurant for evening meals is a short drive & worth it for view of the spectacular sunsets. We based ourselves here for a week & loved every minute. Breathtaking scenery, very comfortable accommodation, great food & ann with her ever present smile & willingness to please. Struggling for ideas to explore, Ann has a folder full of walks etc. highly recommended. You will not be disappointed.
