It's just a walk down the road to the wonderful Eilean Donan Castle. The breakfast was great. We visited the Isle of Skye from here.

The Gills were excellent and kind hosts. The food was wonderful and our en suite double room was good. They really made us feel at home.

From the view over to the Cuillins at Skye, to the proximity of the bus stop (200 metres away opposite the castle - although that didn't stop me accepting a lift down to the stop from the host, such is the level of care and hospitality at Sonas) to the warm,friendly welcome and the magnificent breakfast - this B&B is the finest I know anywhere. (though if it becomes any more popular I shall have trouble getting in for my annual trip to Dornie, although all the stops will be pulled out to suggest other places in the village if you can't get in - such is the hospitality and welcome you can expect here.

I previously reviewed this establishment and decided to make a return visit and if anything it was even better than the last time.The garden is now fully developed and was in full glorious colour. The hostess, Angela, provided us with tea and home baking in the garden which was very much unexpected but greatly appreciated. I still think that for the quality of service that you receive that Angela does not charge enough. On the morning of her departure we had to leave early and we were served a full breakfast at 6.30am. We stayed for 4 days and wished we could have stayed longer. I thoroughly recomment this establishment.

We biked through Scotland and arrived in Dornie quite by chance. It was the best moment of our trip. Sonas B&B was just perfect, breakfast great and we felt at home. Dornie is such a lovely place with a great pub. especially on a sunny day. Food was great.
We shall return and stay longer.

Room Tip: Didn't see the other rooms but Dornie is a quiet place so I think any room will do. Clean and co...

My wife and I just finished backpacking through Europe and this was by far one of the best accomodations we had. We hired a car and drove the Isle of Skye and originally intended to head down to Glen Coe and get a room, but happened upon Sonas when we were near Eilean Donan castle. The rate was fantastic and Angela went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. We were in a bind with clothing and she happilly volunteered to help us out there. The hot water heater broke while we were there, and she apologized profusely for it. Breakfast was fantastic!

Make sure you go down to the castle in the evening as the lighting is amazing!

Sonas is situated in the most perfect of locations. Within 200 hundred yards of this welcoming and comfortable accommodation is Eilean Donan Castle, the beautiful and mystical icon that so picturesquely attracts visitors to the Scottish Highlands! Also visit the atmospheric pub/restaurant The Clachan which is practically on the doorstep of Angela's welcoming guest house. We spent 3 days here and loved every minute of it! Angela provided us with a great breakfast at a time to suit us and then filled our flask with hot water and provided us with coffee, sugar and milk for our picnic! She even offered to provide us with sandwiches!! Thank you Angela and family! Love from Tommy and Janie xx
