One night stay on the final leg of our journey. Very friendly reception and lovely accommodation. Owner couldn't do more for us, including getting up at 6am to make us a full Scottish breakfast. View from the room was fabulous too.

The owner provided a friendly welcome and great hospitality. The room clean and comfortable, a refreshing sleep and a superb home cooked breakfast to start the day. The property also benefits from an elevated location with a view over Melvich beach and bay. Without hesitation I would stay here again.
