Very well located and ideal for the ferry port. Easy to find with convenient parking and a large Tesco minutes away. The room was comfortable and had the added bonus of a fridge. The bathroom was tiny however, just a shower cubicle and toilet, with a hand basin in the bedroom. Breakfast was fine. A comfortable stay.

We stayed for 3 nights before getting the ferry back to Ullapool. The guesthouse is comfortable and the hosts were friendly and welcoming. The location is excellent especially if you have an early ferry!

We were so lucky to stay in this charming guest house. Shona is so welcoming and did all she could to help us and our poorly daughter feel comfortable. The rooms are bright, traditional and very clean. The location is ideal for exploring the island and our delicious breakfasts freshly cooked every day were a treat. Wholeheartedly recommended. And thank you!

Shona & Alistair are perfect hosts! Friendly, attentive & professional. The B&B is ideally located, opposite the ferry port, walking distance to the town & a Tesco down the road to stock up on essentials! Very covid secure, very clean, very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious with self service of cereals,yogurts, fruit, toast, tea & coffee with a pre order for hot breakfasts. Very comfortable room, spacious & clean with a fridge! Big bathroom with a nice shower. Great views over the harbour. Would definitley recommend this B&B.

We chose this B&B because of its location right in front of the ferry landing. Our ferry departs at 7am ferry the next morning. The B&B is quaint with probably only 4 rooms. The rooms have simple furnishings. The owner is friendly. Breakfast was included in the room rate but as we have to leave early the next morning, we helped ourselves to the bread and cornflakes in the dining area. No hot food was not served at that time.
