Op een van onze mototrips langs de prachtige schorse westkust vonden we dit pareltje, grenzend aan de zee met een prachtig zicht op de summer Isles. De oudere gastvrouw legde ons letterlijk in debatten met thee een koekjes, een lekker Schots ontbijt. We dromen graag terug naar dit mooie verborgen plekje, een aanrader voor wie net als wij graag eens rondzwerven in rustige schoonheid.
We didn't have anywhere booked and spotted Dornie House as we were driving along the coast. Mrs McLeod was very friendly and attentive, plying us with biscuits and checking we had everything we needed. The room was clean and comfortable, if slightly on the basic side, with an absolutely stunning view. Good breakfast, and very reasonably priced.
This has to be my most favorite place on earth! Mrs Mcleod is so lovely with her charming Scottish twang and her belly busting breakfasts! It makes me sad to leave everytime :( Thank you Mrs McLeod you will be seeing me again soon xxx
Dornie House is a house in every sense of the word, you really will be living in Mr & Mrs McLeods' home during your stay. It's not for everyone, but it was lovely for us, The furnishings are very kitsch, but comfortable and everything is in working order. The breakfasts are huge, I guarantee you'll struggle to finish! The view from the bedroom window is possibly one of the best in the UK, we opened our curtains to a view over the Summer Isles and the Isle of Lewis beyond that, spectacular! Dornie House is located outside of the remote village of Achiltibuie and is a little difficult to find (we had to ask at the Post Office) but if you are coming this far out into the Highlands then you are probably craving the isolation. There are a couple of pubs that are just about walkable, but everything else is a hike or a drive away. The countryside here is something else. The mountains are immense plus the ease of seeing seals, deer and kestrels everyday is fantastic. Mrs McLeod is very house proud and that extends to your room also. She is genuinely interested in all her visitors and it was a joy to stay with her. If you are after a B&B where you simply check-in and don't see the proprietor until you check-out then Dornie House isn't for you.…
