Solas Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #6 of 18 Gairloch B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 October 2017

We were staying in Solas B&B last year and have returned for 2 nights back in August. Isabell and Graeme were warmly welcoming us, which felt like coming home! The rooms are very spacious and clean, offering great views towards Torridon mountains and Loch Gairloch. We enjoyed lovely cooked breakfasts and the chats with Isabell and Graeme. We had a wonderful stay for the second time now and we will definitely return to this lovely B&B and nice area in the Scottish Highlands! Thanks so much, Hamze

Great location , beautiful house, eccellent breakfast, very well appointed and extremely clean bedrooms. The owners were so kind and nice that we were really sorry to leave this morning. This was the best place we stayed in Scotland.

We greatly enjoyed our stay at Solas. Our hosts were extremely helpful; our room very comfortable and our breakfasts first class. The Solas outlook over Gairloch is magnificent and added tremendously to our overall stay. We'd love to return.

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.

3. Breakfasts
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.

Room Tip: be prepared to pay in cash.

I enjoyed a blissful experience here at the last stop on my NC500 trip before heading homeward. The location is very peaceful with the natural beauty of the sands, sea and fields. The name of the b&b was very truthful! The beach is a short walk across a couple of fields which take you through the local campsite. There is also a restaurant/cafe there for you to eat at so you don't even need to venture far for an evening meal. As for locality to Gairloch it is a short 5 min drive away. I would recommend heading to the end of the road to see the views and the cliffs.

The room was comfortable and warm with plenty of facilities. An outstanding view out to the loch/sea. Sky tv. Wifi, the works (if you decide to stay in). The owners were welcoming and able to give local information as well as a friendly chat. I really enjoyed staying here and really felt welcome. Thank you. And I will be back here hopefully in the not too distant future!
