Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have just stayed 5 nights here and it was perfect. It’s a beautiful view driving to the Croft and wonderfully peaceful when you get there. The room was warm and cosy and full of character. Mono the sheep dog put up with our 5 month old dog and it’s great to have somewhere that genuinely accepts dogs. We really enjoyed the mealtime chats with Seori and his cooking was delicious. Also the suggestions of where to go. We would certainly come back if we are in the area

One of my wife's and my best experiences on our Scottish trip. After a long journey from the Isle of Skye, another 60 miles round trip for wine (another story), we turned right at Dundonnell on the road to Badrallach. The small road through the trees was so pretty, but the 8 mile journey got better as we came to the crest of the hill and could see the loch and scenery. It took our breath away. A slow drive down the single lane road brought us to the The Peatcutter's Croft. I called Seori, who told me to leave the car next to the Freelander. As I was unloading the car, Mono the sheepdog appeared, followed by Seori, who kindly helped me with the suitcases, and took us down to the house. The large guestroom has a separate entrance, so we dropped the bags through that door and Seori took us round to the room, & showed us round. The room has a large ensuite bathroom. Luckily, we asked for dinner to be included. We started chatting with Seori … and continued even as he cooked for us.. and we were pleased he joined us for dinner (we had halloumi with strawberries, salmon, followed by pear tartin.. delicious!). Such a great evening. As we went to bed, it had turned chilly… luckily there is a log fire in the room (electric fan if you prefer)… which added real atmosphere. Breakfast, more chatting with Seori and we headed to our next destination, but enjoyed the drive back along the road, the views .. and didn’t mind waiting for the cows to get out the way.

We were made to feel so welcome here by the very friendly hosts. We were cooked an amazing meal and had a lovely evening chatting away and sharing dinner with them. The room is very cosy and a great interesting mix of architectural styles, being a contemporary converted barn. The setting is stunning, with great local walks.

Wonderful place that has everything going for it. Very hospitable, tasty and comfy accommodation surrounded by awe inspiring nature. Even in the pouring rain the Peatcutters Croft is a wee gem. Will definitely stay there again

A truly beautiful and quiet location next to stunning views. A big room with en suite and tonnes of character and trendy fittings. But the best part of the Croft is your hosts who make your stay fantastic. We had dinner there both nights and loved it. Three courses which could have easily been served at a high end restaurant but we also felt very much at home. Considering that you are in a building which is nearly 200 years old there are just the right amount of modern things like trendy lamp fittings, freeview tv, WiFi and a nice tea making set. The shower is old but that doesn’t matter because it’s about the whole experience and the beauty that surrounds the whole area, and that’s what you should come for. Dogs are welcome which is a bonus. If you’re doing the NC500 or just fancy a couple of nights away check out this place and you will love it. We did. Thanks

What a wonderful place to stay, I’m so glad I found the Peatcutter’s Croft. The beautiful 30 drive from the main road is worth a trip in itself, as the views are breathtaking. It’s wonderfully remote, in a stunning location, and the room is so stylishly put together it feels like you could be in a boutique hotel, but with a much more charming, down to earth atmosphere, being greeted by chickens and sheep every morning. But the best thing really about the Peatcutter’s Croft was our host Seori, who runs the B&B with his family. We loved chatting over fantastic breakfasts, which catered for vegetarian, vegan and carnivore. This is the way a B&B should be done! Fantastic.

Our visit to The Peatcutter's Croft in June 2018 turned out to be one of the most enjoyable experiences we have ever had on holiday. The location on the hills above Loch Broom is idyllic and both Pauline and Seari were the perfect hosts. The accommodation was very comfortable and quite unique for a B&B. We had our own entrance to a spacious bedroom with ensuite facilities offering not only a shower but a bath as well. Our dog, Jennie, was made very welcome too. To cap it all, the weather was absolutely perfect. The highlight of our stay, however, was the banter at breakfast and the evening meals. We ate with the family in their own kitchen. Pauline is a wonderful chef and our meals were far above the standard of many hotels, never mind B&Bs. Seari's boiled eggs for breakfast were were cracking. All in all we intend to go back. Great value for money as well.

Well worth the drive down the 8-Mile single-land Road, this quirky little spot was one of the highlights of our trip. The best part of it was the hosts themselves. Seori and Pauline were lovely hosts who gave us wonderful conversation along with our delicious breakfast. We will absolutely return.

Travelling the North 500 we stayed at Peatcutters in the first weekend in September, which also happened to be a fabulous weekend of weather. Peatcutters is unbelievably special because of its location, its unique appeal, but most of all because of the warmth of welcome and excellent company of Seoras, Pauline and their family. We shared dinner with them all on both nights we were there and enjoyed fabulously cooked food and great conversation. They have both enjoyed really interesting lives and are happy to share their experiences with you, at the same time as being interested in your life and experiences. The accommodation is part of their family Croft. It's comfortable and well designed and enjoys private access. The approach along an 8 mile single track road affords stunning views over the Loch and occasional meetings with cattle and sheep. The complete lack of light and noise pollution meant we had the best sleep we'd enjoyed in months. We are one year into a two year "gap year" and our stay at the Peatcutters will remain as one of the warmest and most memorable experience of all our travels and we really hope we will get to go back sometime soon. Truly amazing!!! Thank you Seoras and Pauline, and your lovely family.

We spent our fifth wedding anniversary in the Peatcutter's Croft and loved the whole experience. It is a wonderfully quirky and comfortable place, tucked away in in a beautiful part of Scotland. We adored the hens and cockerels and ducks and cats that roam outside the Croft and inside we particularly enjoyed the wood burning stove and the superb hospitality of Seori and Pauline. A delicious dinner and terrific craic, and our hosts could not have been more generous with their recommendations for what to see and do in the area. We stayed up way too late watching election results so the coffee and excellent breakfast the next morning we're most welcome too... I'd highly recommend the Peatcutter's Croft, it's a magical spot in a magnificent part of the world.
