This is a review from our two-week driving tour through the Northern Scottish Highlands, where we stayed at mostly Bed and Breakfasts and Guest Houses. We are experienced travelers and try to provide an objective review of our guest experience.
1. Welcome and Hosts
We arrived and the hosts were not home (but left a note on the door) which allowed us to take a nice walk to the beach, which is only minutes away. The home if very bright and although a modular home, very well appointed. Isabell and Graeme were very nice and spent some time chatting (and listening) to us. Best to stay away from any discussions about politics : )
2. Room and Facilities
We had a spacious bedroom with en suite and a nice window with a view. There was nothing lacking. There is not a general living room area that one can sit in, but we were too tired after dinner. The dinner recommendation in Big Sand was a good one.
The breakfast was cooked to order and I enjoyed the full Scottish breakfast, which I could on finish.
4. Summary and Recommendation
Big Sand is delightful, much better than being in Gairloch and so peaceful and tranquil. I would highly recommend it to anyone staying in this part of the Highlands. Make sure you have enough cash as they do not accept credit cards. This was not stated in our reservation, but was not a problem as we had just enough left over. There is a bank in town with a ATM if needed.
