This is a marvelous B&B and far better than most. Paula and her team are very friendly, the food is great, the bed very comfy and we can't wait to come back again. The location is at the outskirts of the main settlement and it is the first place you come to after the ferry. Walking distance to places to... More

The lounge was cosy with stunning view over the landscape and bay. Extremely service minded staff, they helped us with all sorts of things they wouldn't have had to. The breakfast was absolutely fabulous with everything... More

Just back from a long weekend on Coll, where we stayed at Tigh-na-Mara. It's a wonderful guest house. Immaculately clean, with comfy beds. Rooms were serviced daily, with clean towels each time. Tea & coffee facilities in the room, along with fresh cakes each day. The staff couldn't do more for you and the breakfasts are delicious - with a... More

We spent a comfortable night at Tigh-na-Mara. Nothing was too much trouble for Paula. She is chatty and unfussy, which seems to reflect the whole island. I could say that the setting and views from the house were superb but that applies to pretty well everywhere in Arinagour. Breakfast was great and she even took our bags down to the... More

Excellent host with the most. Lovely setting, facilities, attention. Rooms and food excellent. Such a great stay. Great views, and relaxing lounge to chill out in. Don't stay elsewhere! A central location to travel the island too. Grounds to wander around in well manicured. Could not recommend more highly!!!

My wife bought me an amazing 3 day trip to see basking sharks in Coll which I had this week. I stayed at Tigh-na-Mara and was warmly welcomed by Paula and her team who couldn't have been more helpful, supportive or pleasant. The room was a good size with plenty of space and a very warm comfortable bed. The ensuite... More

The superlatives would not be good enough. Paula's hospitality is superb, breakfast outstanding, location amazing. The island is a peaceful paradise with deserted beaches, endless walks with dolphins , seals and amazing machair. Restoration for the soul
