“Great stay close to the Eilean Donan Castle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2013

We stayed here for one night during our trip through Scotland and were pleasantly surprised by the hospitality of the host, the cleanliness of the room and the great breakfast. Combining this with the super close proximity of the beautiful Eilean Donan Castle made this B&B guesthouse a great experience.

Room Tip: We had a room with the castle view, which was nice!

Very small room packed with many furnitures and noise from next door people, it wasn't cheap either. Not expected level of standard for the price paid. Surroundings and view through the window is fabulous.

There is absolutely nothing that could have been better in this lovely cottage deep within the Scottish highlands. It was just perfect from all point of views. Our host was so warm and welcoming and full of advice and insights for our trip to Skye and the surrounding area. The room was spotless and the en-suite bathroom was squeaky clean. You can see the Eilean Donan castle in the distance. Just blissful. Thanks!

Very comfortable stay and a great choice of a full Highland or Continental breakfast in the morning. Location is great for exploring the area. The room was very comfortable/clean. If you are traveling to the Isle of Skye this is a great option for you. The hosts provided local information and diner options for the late evening. Great place that should not be overlooked.

Thank you so much for a very comfortable and relaxing stay. The room was cosy and very comfortable and definitely had a view!

Breakfast was a treat. Rather than the normal full Scottish option we picked the continental option and it was perfect. Home made yogurt and pastries and a beautiful dining room to ear in.

Would thoroughly recommend!!

We stayed one night on our way back from the Western Isles but would like to stay longer another time. Everywhere was spotlessly clean, the bed one of the most comfortable we have slept in and the breakfast delicious. Mary was very friendly and helpful, even returning the clothing we left behind! The view from the bedroom window over the loch was an added bonus and we would recommend Eilean A Cheo to our friends.

Room Tip: The rooms at the front have a lovely view

We stayed here for one night on a tour of the west coast. We had a great room with large en-suite and the best, most comfy bed I have ever slept in... wow!!
Mary was a lovely host, and explained about local places to eat at night.
Breakfast was nice and very tasty, but only received white toast with no choice, we would have preferred brown, but just a minor gripe.
Property was spotless and had a most enjoyable stay, would defo stay there again on our next visit to the area.
We had a room with a view of Eileen Donan castle and was a lovely view over the castle, loch and mountains
