Aird Hill Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 2 Badachro B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 September 2012

A great B & B with stunning views over Badachro Bay. We were given a very hospitable welcome by the owners, Gordon and Vanessa Quinn. The room, though reasonably compact, was very well equipped and had everything you could need. Lovely dining room (with even more stunning views) for breakfast which was also very good. A lovely stay and a warm welcome. Highly recommended.

Thanks very much for your review. We certainly enjoyed having you here and hope to be able to look after you again before too long.
A new, much larger en-suite room with private balcony & tv / sofa area will be available to book soon which provides stunning views across the loch, hills & Minch to the Isle of Skye.
It would be our pleasure to upgrade you if you do make it back next year!
Very best wishes,
Gordon

This modern but sympathetically styled house, over looking the beautiful Badachro Bay, is home to your hosts, Vanessa and Gordon Quinn. This husband and wife team have brought skills, honed in their former lives as business professionals, to bear on the challenge of providing an outstanding B&B experience.

The house is immaculate, bright and airy and within easy walking distance of the local village pub.
Reclaimed wood and heated terracotta tiles cover the floors. Two ground floor bedrooms provide compact but very comfortable accommodation.
Home made/grown foodstuffs include ,in season, Eggs, bacon, sausages, honey ,soft fruits, jam and bread. Other breakfast items are locally sourced where possible. The hosts are very friendly and do everything they can to make your stay memorable. A real find!

Room Tip: You can't go wrong!

We had a wonderful stay with Gordon and Vanessa. The house is beautiful and the landscape breathtaking with a great view on the loch. The room is confortable but a bit too small. We stayed only one night so it was fine.

We stayed with Gordon and Vanessa for two nights meeting up with friends and undertaking some lovely walks. We really appreciated the warm welcome given by Gordon. He was friendly and informative about the local area and personal touches added to our few days break. The house is in a stunning location with fantastic views of the mountains and loch.These can be best appreciated from the conservatory where we ate breakfast or the garden where we enjoyed coffee. The breakfasts were excellent with lots of home produced products.The local pub at Badachro which is easily within walking distance also offered super food. Our rooms were excellent being exceptionally clean with a very comfy bed and a powerful shower which was lovely after a day walking. Our best walk was to Fairy Loch which was where a USAAF B 24 Liberator plane crashed. The site was very moving; the grandeur of the mountains and the tranquility of the lochs surrounded by moving mist and remains of the plane is an experience not to be missed as is a stay at Aird Hill.

We had a 2 night stay here and as in the title 'It Really is a Good as it Looks'. Gordon & Vanessa are great hosts. Room is v comfortable. Location and breakfast superb. If you are in the area and it's available stay. You will not be disappointed. An earlier post about new owners is not correct. G & V have been there 5 years and intend to stay.

This was a great place in a great location with really nice hosts. The views are stunning and you will be well looked after here. Breakfast was excellent and in the best location of our whole trip. Also Badachro was a little gem of a village with a great pub serving fresh seafood. The only thing that stopped this being a 5 star B&B was the size of the rooms which were cosy and very clean but a bit on the small size. Possibly due for a unique extention in the future which will be worth a re-visit.

What a fabulous b&b! We were given a lovely welcome on arrival along with advice on a fantastic afternoon walk along red point beach (the Beach is in our opinion the best kept secret in Scotland).

Aird hill sits on top of a hill overooking Badachro harbour with the most fantastic views to the mountains beyond. Badachro is definitely the best part of gairloch to stay with its quant harbour and perfect mix of isolation and location to other facilities in Strath and Auchtercairn.

The accommodation was outstanding and breakfast stunning, particularly that view from the breakfast room. We couldn't fault it! The only thing we would change is to have stayed longer! We can't wait to recommend Aird Hill to friends and family.
