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.

The Albannach is in a great location, just a few minutes drive from Lochinver. It is also possible to walk from there to the harbour within 20 minutes so is ideal for restaurants in the area, especially if you do not want to drive. The owner was in communication before our arrival and was there to meet us to check us in. We stayed in the Byre for two nights which had everything we needed; the accommodation was immaculate with beautiful furnishings which felt very luxurious. There was also a hot tub which we didn't get a chance to use as we were sight seeing and walking around the area, but it was very secluded and was also well looked after. The host provided breakfast in the conservatory of the main house; he was happy to provide breakfast at a time that suited us which was really great as we wanted a lie in the first morning. He also went out of his way the following morning as we had to leave early yet he still managed to leave out breakfast and a few treats for us. The homemade granola was delicious as well as the Eggs Florentine. I would definitely recommend a stay at The Albannach and hope to return at some point in the future.

Absolutely the best hospitality we’ve ever had! The Albannach is simply amazing. My wife & I spent our silver wedding anniversary there and Ballal and his partner could not have been more convivial. The Kalsoom suite was immaculate, fastidiously clean and wonderfully equipped, the furnishings exquisite, the view from our room breathtaking (when the clouds finally broke) and our breakfasts-simply the best I’ve ever had, served in original beautiful highland stoneware pottery. We cannot recommend this beautiful establishment enough. Can’t wait to return 😁😁

This is a gorgeous B&B with stunning views. Stayed for three nights in the Penthouse Suite. It was immaculately clean, comfortable, and beautifully appointed. The owners really understand hospitality and have been renovating the property with a keen eye toward design and traveler comfort. Take the time to walk around the grounds and be delighted. Breakfast is absolutely divine with fresh ingredients. Lochinver and the Albannach serve as a great base for a few days while traveling the NC500. Excellent hiking, views, and wonderful people.

We stayed for two nights in at the Albannach in The Byre. It is beautifully comfortable and private. The views from the garden towards Canisp and Suilven are wonderful and the hot tub is fabulous. The owners are so friendly and helpful. We would return in a heartbeat! The breakfasts were delicious especially the eggs Florentine and the Shakshouka. It is a great base for exploring the local area.

Simply outstanding in every way. We stayed in the penthouse suite and it was absolutely superb. Fantastically well appointed with the most luxurious bath, and gorgeously decorated. A wonderfully comfortable and relaxing place to stay. The owners were fabulously welcoming and helpful; they’re proud of their breakfasts and justifiably so - easily the best breakfasts I’ve ever had at any hotel anywhere in the world. This is a great stop off on the NC500 (with excellent parking) or just to explore the beautiful Lochinver area. Cannot recommend highly enough!

What a lovely B&B to have discovered and stayed for three nights. The breakfasts are beautifully presented, extremely filling & most of all, delicious. As another reviewer noted, “the boys” really do care about you and your stay and it absolutely does show. They have been fixing up the B&B since they purchased during the pandemic (2020) and the penthouse was fantastic and large (rain shower was amazing), the hot tub and sunroom in the Byre was a wonderful treat, and the pink room perfectly quaint (we used three rooms between my 80+ in-laws, my husband and I, and our teenage son). I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend a stay here for that wonderful country ambiance, charm, character & gracious hospitality so many of us seek out in an upscale B&B.

“Practically perfect in every way”. I was simply going to write “exquisite” but my wife told me to cite Mary Poppins. From the friendly greeting by the owner, to the delightful bedrooms furnished and decorated to an extremely high standard, to the vast spa bath, to breakfast in the conservatory (and do try the salmon benedict - best ever) - this b&b couldn’t have achieved better. Book early and stay a few nights. You won’t regret it.

A room worthy of a top class hotel and a delicious breakfast, stayed for two nights would have been happy to remain for longer. Warm welcome and wonderful service from the host/owners. Convenient location for Ullapool and the surrounding area.

This B&B definitely rates 5+ stars. We were in the Kalsoom Suite. The room was huge and very clean and comfortable. Nice area just to sit and enjoy our time here. The room faced Suilven Mountain. The parking is in a large graveled area. WiFi was very good. I must mention the gardens, they were beautiful and a joy to walk through. They are close to the town of Lochinver about a 20 minute walk. The best part of this B&B is Robin and Ballal. They were so friendly and took care of our every need. Breakfast was about the best that we had on our trip and was served in the conservatory. Would love to return some day.

Lochinver is a nice little town with a good selection of restaurants, much better than in many places along the NC 500.
The Albannach we would highly recommend. We rented the penthouse and it was gorgeous. Beautifully designed, spacious with a nice sitting area and large bedroom, wardrobe, separate wc, good bathroom. Breakfast served in the conservatory, and a very nice selection of breakfast dishes.
This place was the most relaxing and best value for money during our 2 week trip along the NC500.
