While scrap booking our trip from last Easter and wishing we were back in Scotland this year too, I realized I hadn't made reviews for the trip. When I went to write this review, I was so surprised to read the recent, fairly negative reviews for this Inn. Our stay with our daughter and husband at MacKinnon House was magical. The location was convenient - MacKinnon Country Hotel is right over the bridge at the first round about on the right going towards Kileakin. We arrived late to the hotel and dinner due to some car problems en route and Ian was very welcoming and put us at ease, showed us our rooms, and arranged things so that we had time for unwinding and to have a drink in the "Honor Bar" beforehand. Dinner was amazing - so much so that we booked dinner for our third night on Skye at the hotel too! Breakfasts were nourishing, hot, with enough food to keep us going for most of the day. Ian was helpful with suggestions for touring the Island and the time involved. The room was well appointed with light wood furniture, a Tartan swag above the bed, drapes and curtains that looked great and the bed was comfortable for a good night’s sleep too. Lots of towels, robes, tea tray and wee dram insured comfort. Our second dinner was just as fabulous as the first. We enjoyed the common room fire, chatting with other quests and playing cards whilst sipping some Drambuie after dinner. My only response to those that had less positive experiences than ours is perhaps their expectations were different than ours. This is not a hotel with every amenity under the sun, nor is it a boutique B & B with modern style, it is a cozy manor, with the feel of the highlands, unpretentious and charming. The dinner is extraordinary. Both the accommodation and food were of excellent value. We stayed here for considerably less than our B&B in Inverness and the hotel in Edinburgh. I would go back in a heartbeat.
