We have stayed in many, many B&B's in the U.K. but none finer than this! It is located in the very small village of Dornie but I would go out of my way to stay there again.

I did this to make sure she would hold the room for me. The room was...

Dot has her home decorated beautifully, and she takes pride in welcoming guests. We truly enjoyed our stay, and had a wonderful breakfast. You can walk to Eilean Donan or to Dornie. She does not accept credit cards.
