We stayed in the bungalow of the old smiddy earlier this month. It was extremely well presented, well equipped, and very comfortable. Great base for exploring the local area with walks and visits to the local villages, and also perfect for shutting away the weather with a good book! Highly recommended!

It is situated in a beautiful pastoral setting with views of Gruinard Bay and the surrounding mountains. The bungalow was a wonderful base from which to explore many attractions such as Inverewe Gardens, the Inverpolly Nature Reserve, and several...

A truly delightful B&B, with wonderful hosts and a peaceful pleasant setting. The room (the Garden Room) was spacious, comfortable with all that you could possibly need. Breakfast was amazing. Full Scottish, set up for a day of exploring and adventure. I will be back!

I spent 2 nights here in May, weather not good but warm welcome from Julia and Julian, delicious food, five star accommodation and a real treat was the view from the studio bedroom where I watched the light changing over the mountains and the birds, from buzzards to swallows - with every imaginable comfort provided.
