This B&B is a problem for us as it sets the bar so high that all other B&B's struggle to come close to what Cara has built at The Gathering. A super NY's stay, an untouchable location and with food that you would gladly travel to have on its own. The scallops were the size of a fist. Thanks again...

Loved this place. We arrived off the ferry in the dark & she unexpectedly came to collect us rather than leave us to struggle to find it. The hostess is an amazing cook - food was really on another level & portions were huge so prepare to put on a pound or two! Views are beautiful and the B&B is...

The food served up in the Gathering is some of the best food we've had at a B&B anywhere in Scotland. Everything was delish with hungry walker portions. Really impressed with Cara in the kitchen. It's hard to believe there's only one Cook in the kitchen. I has a delish salmon & pickled herring salad starter & my wife had...

We stayed here for one night and had an amazing time. The views are outstanding, especially from the hot tub on the terrace. Breakfast was vast and delicious - freshly cooked to order and more than either of us could finish. The rooms are very clean and comfortable with all amenities. The night sky was so clear and we even...

Stayed with 2 friends at the Gathering and could not praise it high enough. Food excellent and really comfy beds. Cara and her team very eager to make your stay enjoyable. Try the Mallaig kippers- fantastic. Also had an impromptu concert in the village one sunny afternoon. Very relaxing- thank you.

The accommodations were gorgeous - comfortable and clean. Everything was new and fresh. The bed was one of the most comfortable ones we had on our 2 weeks+ in Scotland. Breakfast was amazing. So fresh and well prepared! The perfect start to a long day of hiking! Despite all this being excellent, it was still outshone by the hospitality of...

Just spent 2 wonderful days at The Gathering being well looked after by Cara and her wee team! A wonderful location with great food both at breakfast and in the evenings. Cara collected our luggage from the ferry and we took the short walk to The Gathering, taking in the spectacular views. A great time was had by all and...

A warm welcome from host Cara began a wonderful three-night stay at this very clean and comfortable establishment, overlooking Loch Nevis (which means 'Heaven'). Cara was so helpful and advised us on where to eat and how to get around this remote peninsula. The room was spacious and very comfortable, with sofa, TV, and two sets of bunk beds, so...

We visited Knoydart for a family wedding in August and were fortunate enough to have been booked into The Gathering by the organisers. Couldn't recommend it too highly ! It's very convenient for the ferry landing and as all the reviews confirm it offers a high standard of care and comfort. Special mention should be made of your host Cara...

“I believe rooms upstairs would have felt a bit more away from the breakfast bustle if you're a late sleeper, but best ask when booking.”
