Had a E-mail from Tom the day before we were due to arrive saying that he had no telephone landline and couldn't make arrangements when we got to Invergarry to collect us by boat, and could we walk in. Weather was bad, with wind and rain and very wet underfoot, but when arriving dripping wet, Tom made us very welcome and coffee and cake was soon produced. Not having stayed here before, we did not know what sort of food to expect, but we soon found Tom's meals excellent, many cooked by the light of his head torch. As it started going dark, and with no electricity, the hurricane lamps and candles were lit and with a roaring fire, we soon settled in for a nice cosy evening. There was only one other guest who arrived a few minutes before us, and we had some nice conversations with him. We stayed for a week, and most of the time we had to stay in, but we found plenty to occupy us, by reading some of the vast amount of books or trying to do the jigsaws that Tom has. We did get out once or twice and Tom took us out in his boat to the car park one day. While having our evening meal in the greenhouse, the deer came down to graze. As it is rutting season we could hear the stags roaring and one day one stag chased another one off. We throughly enjoyed our stay at Skiary and Tom was a great host. We will definitely be coming back again next year, hoping that the weather is slightly better. Definitely highly recommended, a great get -a-way from everything place. With no electricity, phone network or wifi, it just reminded you how simple and enjoyable life used to be before TV and technology arrived. A truly amazing place.

Remote and beautiful on the edge of the loch. No internet, no TV, no electricity (but hot water), great food (thank you Tom) and what a landscape. We walked and walked and saw hardly anyone where ever we went.

We'd been wanting to stay here for several years - and it did not disappoint. We spent three nights here, walked miles along routes picked out for us by Tom, ate amazingly, and relished the wildness of the scenery and its remoteness. The lack of electricity and internet signal was no problem - it enhanced the experience as did the fire and oil lamps. As other's have said, Tom's cooking is wonderful. We all had a fabulous time.

Incredible scenery and a wonderful host (Tom)! We couldn't have asked for a better place to start our trip around Scotland. We stayed in June 2016 and were lucky to also have beautiful weather. Tom showed us around the area and we enjoyed evenings around the bonfire, long walks and even a swim in a nearby waterfall. Tom was a fantastic host (and fanstastic cook!) - dining next to the loch was a highlight! I would love to go back and would recommend to anyone visiting Scotland.

Can't describe how good the experience is here. It's so remote, the journey along the single track road taking you further and further away from civilisation until eventually you meet Tom at the edge of the Loch. A quick boat ride and the house comes into view. The house is wonderful and cosy with the fire and the paraffin lamps when the light starts to fade - comfy sofas and plenty of books and board games to keep you entertained. Tom is an excellent host and the food he prepared was incredible from the home made cake he first served us, to the delicious dinners he cooked up and packed lunches we got through the weekend. I have already booked to go back this year and will likely keep returning as long as Tom stays open!

Absolutely fantastic few days at Skiary with our wonderful host Tom. Food was amazing, Tom is obviously very passionate about his cooking. Everything fresh, home made, and a taste sensation and if that wasn't enough its served in the greenhouse at the side of the Loch. Its a dining experience with a view to die for!

Skiary is phenomenal! Nothing is too much trouble for hosts Claire & Tom, the scenery is beautiful,food delicious & accommodation cosy. An idyllic setting to get away from it all, accessed on foot or motor launch,a glimpse of how things were before life got so hectic. Would love to return. Fiona & Mike

Genuinely one of the most amazing places in the UK to stay - the location, scenery, fresh air and the bounty of fish/shellfish available in loch hourn...plus the actual cottage itself - cozy, welcoming and comfy, and the hosts...Tom & Claire...two of the most willing, genuinely accommodating, funny and friendly people you will ever have the pleasure of meeting! Highly recommended for the ultimate in a break from all the irks of modern life!

Two TGO Challengers walking coast to coast across Scotland were warmly welcomed to Skiary to enjoy tea, freshly made scones and the best jam I've tasted in years. Don't miss this place if you are boating or walking around Loch Hourn. Liz Robertson (walking with Susan Pow)

This fisherman's cottage guest house provides a wonderful holiday if you like peace, quiet,fabulous views and personal service. Tom and Claire looked after us so well, the meals and picnics were superb, beautiful home cooking to a high standard. Nothing was too much trouble and there were so many thoughtful touches in every room. Take warm pyjamas !
