Stayed at Doune as a lone hiker having had to cancel a trip with friends to another part of Knoydart due to Covid restrictions and can only say that the hospitality I received transformed this into a serendipitous turn of events. Travelling solo can quite often prove an uneconomical way to holiday and one might sometimes feel like a bit of an afterthought but at Doune it was a virtue. The bothy room would be decent value in and of itself but the quality, variety and abundance of Liz's home-cooked food, included in the full board price, makes it pretty astonishing. Updating my scarcely believing partner back home with descriptions of the 3 course evening meal was a highlight of each day! I also made use of their boat Gripper II to reach a couple of remote Munros and the advice, information and flexibility of Andy and Martin in planning my days around the weather in Knoydart was invaluable and appreciated. The dolphins in Loch Hourn on the second day's return were a nice bonus. Heartfelt thanks to Jane, Liz, Andy and Martin, I'm sure you are aware but you have something special here and I look forward to returning one day soon.

I’ve lurked on TripAdvisor for years, but never previously left a review - this glorious place has finally persuaded me to do so. Martin, Jane, Liz, Andy, Ronnie and of course the other guests have given me a holiday I’ll always treasure. I stayed in one of the Stone Lodges and by the end of the first evening, I’d already asked to extend my stay: I was lucky enough to be able to switch to the Bothy for the second part of the week. The food was exceptional, from the well-balanced breakfasts with just the right amount of choice, through the excellent packed lunches, to the beautifully presented and delicious dinners. I particularly enjoyed the care with which the courses were explained, and the home-grown fruit, vegetables and herbs that featured, as well as Liz’s superb cheeses. I was about to list highlights, but I would just end up cataloguing the whole week’s meals. I really appreciated the efforts that Jane and the others had made to minimise the risk of Covid19. Although guests were sat at different tables, we held good conversations across the dining room and there was plenty of communal spirit. I found the mix of being with other guests and having time on my own worked very well. Martin had a terrific knack of causing the next day's plans to coalesce after dinner. The walks were fabulous - I have no head for heights so kept to the lower hills and paths but loved the boat rides out, endless opportunities for swimming, spectacular scenery and clear paths. Andy was generous with his knowledge of the area and what we were seeing, and he and Martin were very patient when we took longer than planned to get to the pick-up point. Since returning home, I’ve missed Doune Bay badly, but have comforted myself with photos, maps, Liz’s recipes and a stash of biscuits that I’d saved from my packed lunches. And I’m just about to break into the souvenir marmalade. I feel so lucky to have stumbled across Doune Bay, booked incredibly last minute and been made to feel so welcome. Thank you, friends.

We eventually stayed here for a few days after having to postpone it due to an arm break and picking up a late cancellation. What can I say other than it lived up to all our expectations. Accommodation was great and had everything you needed. Food (and wine) in the restaurant was fantastic and the pack lunch is a great idea when you are having a day out walking. They’ve put all possible measures in place during these COVID times and, while we missed out on the big get-togethers at dinner, you still felt safe and could chat easily with other guests. The chance to use the boat to take you to start points for walks that otherwise wouldn’t be possible (or be damn hard to reach at least) is a great bonus...also a great opportunity for wildlife spotting with whales, porpoises etc all around. Finally, the hosts (Martin, Jane, Andy & Liz) we’re brilliant. On hand for anything you needed from pre-arrival advice and help (they timed the boat arrival to suit my wife’s broken arm 😁) to advice on walks and other things to do in the wonderful Knoydart countryside. We will definitely be back to this simply wonderful,magical place - even just so I get the seafood buffet next time 😁

I stayed here as part of a walking trip with Wilderness Scotland. It’s such a lovely place run by the nicest people. The location is stunning and this is the perfect base for hiking. Liz and Andy and Jane and Martin do an amazing job of creating a wonderful place to stay in this remote part of Scotland. We stayed in the group lodge and had all meals included. The food was plentiful and absolutely delicious. I really appreciated the vegetarian options I was given that were created with the same care as the standard meals - not just an afterthought. I highly recommend staying here if you are lucky enough to visit the beautiful Knoydart peninsula.

We had an amazing dinner here in front of a beautiful view - the weather was perfect and the food was excellent. Vegetarians well-catered for. Home-made cheese and freshly baked bread were delicious. Friendly and down to earth ambience. This is a must if you are staying on Knoydart and looking for a special dining experience.
