We stayed in the King Room for two nights back in June last year and absolutely loved it - what a magical place. Our room had a view over Lochalsh and a really comfy bed with a huge and spectacular bathroom. We wished we had been able to stay longer there, as Jayne and Ross were extremely welcoming and friendly,...

We only stayed 2 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. Jayne was a wonderful hostess - so helpful with tips on things to see and do. And we got to hear Ross play his bagpipes and had a great discussion about music. The breakfasts were just perfect. We stayed in the king room - quiet and spotlessly clean,...

We had a very good stay at Jayne's B&B. Jayne and her husband (sorry don't remember his name) were very great! The room was clean, spacious and of course cozy. Breakfast was tasty and had a lot of choices. The smoked salmon/scrambled eggs is delicious ! Would definitely stay again if we have the chance !

What a lovely place. Right on the waters edge and Ross and Jayne have a treasure of a place to share with anyone who stays here. The attention to detail in the style and decoration of the room and house were quite nice. We had the added enjoyment of seeing Ross's workshop and hearing him play the bagpipes....very lovely.
