Clean comfortable and a good breakfast Mary was very friendly and helpful advising places to eat in Plockton where we had wanted to stay but everything was booked. Glad we did'nt as it was over run with tourists so Eilen a Cheop was a welcome relief. The double room at the front was nice the ensuite a bit small but...

Mary and Raymond were excellent hosts during our one night stay in August. They were very accomodating of our need for a gluten free diet. We stayed in a triple room with our adult daughter. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable and there wasn't a noise problem between rooms. The bathroom was roomy and modern. The beautifully cooked...

This is a lovely place to stay with a great breakfast. I have never had home made yougurt and home made croissants at a B/B before. Highly reccomended. Will hopefully be back!

Situated just down the road from Eilean Donan Castle and a short journey to Skye this B&B had a great location. The ensuite bathroom was very small, but clean, and the bedroom was clean too. The bed creaked loudly everytime one of us moved making for a disturbed night's sleep! Breakfast was tasty - the husband is a chef, but...

Dear Fellow Tripadvisor members The following is I believe is the only suitable response to this particular guests problems from the outset I knew she was a problem, arriving before the room was ready complaining about the weather as if we could fix that!! The Breakfast menu is on our website all of our ingredients are locally sourced and fresh...

We had a very small room at the rear of the guest house, no view other than to an untidy and overgrown garden to the rear. Mary did explain that a shed had blown over in a storm which did explain some of the mess. Not much sound proofing between the rooms - with toilets flushing, etc - although we...

6 of us arrived quite late in the day, and the owner had phoned up ahead of us to check which local restaurants would still be serving food. She then phoned up and booked one for us while we got our cars unloaded. The rooms were cosy, but the ones facing the water had great view over loch and can...

Eillean A’Cheo is a nice B&B conveniently located close to the Eilean Donan Castle. We had a warm and friendly welcome and the owner was quite informative and helpful about the area. The service and breakfast are good. Our room was in the ground floor facing the main road and therefore the view from the room was not remarkable. As...

We stayed at Eilean a Cheo Guest House for three nights (two couples traveling together) and found it to be a wonderful place. Our rooms were upstairs and were very clean and neat. I find it amusing when people complain about rooms being small. Must be people who never go anywhere or only stay in chain hotels. We had plenty...

A very warm welcome, a stunning view of Eilean Donan Castle, a delicious, hearty breakfast; everything a B&B has to offer. The location is ideal as it is close to Eilean Donan Castle, Dornie, the Isle of Skye, Glencoe and the rest of the Highlands.

The rooms were tidy but really small, all of them clairaudient. We were a group of six, our room was directly beneath the staircase, the other two beneath the roof. The breakfast was very healthy - as Mary told us, she only serves fresh organic food. All in all a good b&b near Eileann Donan Castle.

“We chose rooms with castle view, rooms 1 & 2. It was a nice view and we could indeed see the castle, but don't expect too much - a large part of it was blocked by a big white house.”
