Four of us on a walking holiday stayed three nights. We wanted B&B but were billeted in the self-catering cottage and had our breakfast at the main house. With our car abandoned at Mallaig, the ferry to Invery was a holiday in itself with stunning views to Eigg, Rhum and Skye. We were met at the pier by Cara who...

I didn't book the trip for me and my walking party personally and hence I hadn't read any reviews of The Gathering previously on TA. In a way it meant I was even more pleased when I arrived and saw the obvious quality of the place. Coupled to that the exceptional food (one of the best cooked breakfasts I've had)...

There were 6 in the party so we were given the self catering property "Lochside" to stay in on a B&B basis. Superb and excellently appointed house with modern facilities. Breakfast and evening meals were also excellent as was the beer and wine!!! Superb after a hard days walking.

I try to avoid giving five stars on TA, except for exceptional places, as many places seem to receive five stars just for being good. Luckily, Cara's b&b is thoroughly deserving of the top rating because the building, hospitality and food are all faultless. Sitting a stone's throw from the sea and harbour, the b&b is perfectly sited for the...

I recently stayed at The Gathering with 5 friends during a walking trip to Knoydart - an excellent decision. The accommodation was top class, the owner (Cara) and staff very helpful and the food exceptional - breakfast, evening meal and even the packed lunched. I have no hesitation in recommending The Gathering & I will certainly return.

Met on the pier by Cara, who took our bags directly to the house, while we walked the short walk up. We always get a warm welcome. As you approach the driveway up to The Gathering their is a sign that says Knoydarts Premier Accommodation - that is more than true. The Gathering is a modern B&B with 4 guest...

Thanks Cara for a fantastic weekend, from your welcome off the ferry,your kindness throughout our stay to the very comfortable bedrooms and delicious homemade food.The stunning views and hot tub were an added bonus, rounded off by a great fiddle recital from your twin boys. I'm definitely planning on coming back!

Absolutely outstanding stay at The Gathering. The service afforded us by Cara, Jackie and the rest of the gang was in the words one 56yr old member of our group, 'the finest hospitality he had encountered in nearly 40 years of travelling'. I could not argue. The food was divine. The scallops referred to by another reviewer were indeed, fist...

This B&B is a problem for us as it sets the bar so high that all other B&B's struggle to come close to what Cara has built at The Gathering. A super NY's stay, an untouchable location and with food that you would gladly travel to have on its own. The scallops were the size of a fist. Thanks again...

“Great views from upstairs rooms and the conservatory”

“I believe rooms upstairs would have felt a bit more away from the breakfast bustle if you're a late sleeper, but best ask when booking.”

“Book upstairs room if you can, could be a little noisy if you are in a downstairs room and guests come in late / go our early.”
