Gairloch View Guest House
Ranked #4 of 18 Gairloch B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 September 2013

We booked this on the basis of good Trip Advisor reviews, and it was excellent. Alan very helpful and welcoming, both in the booking process and for our stay; super quality room with excellent f&f and much care and personal touches made. Our room didn't have a view but we were warned, and the guest lounge and dining room did. No tv in room, but that didn't bother us - one in the lounge which encouraged us to meet other guests. About 10 mins walk up the hill from town - fine for us but not so good for those with mobility problems. Breakfast delicious; much helpful information given. Note - they don't take cards; cash/cheque only. Definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Twin beds - view; double bed - no view - so it depends on your priorities!

We absolutely loved this B&B. The views from the guesthouse are stunning. Sheena and Alan are wonderful hosts who gave us a warm welcome upon our arrival with tea, coffee, and cake. When we asked for recommendations for dinner, they gave suggestions and made our reservations for us. As avid hikers, we were especially grateful for Alan's wealth of knowledge and help in choosing hikes in the area. He provided maps and personal insights about area trails. The rooms in the guesthouse are small, but they are comfortable and spotlessly clean. The full Scottish breakfast was a real treat, especially since our table was situated under a large picture window offering a wonderful vista of the Loch towards Isle of Skye. We also enjoyed talking with Alan during breakfast and learning more about the area. We can't recommend this B&B highly enough!

Room Tip: Ask for the room with the Loch view.

Arrived a bit early (12) just to check that our dates were correct, as we had no confirmation paperwork. We seemed to take Sheena by surprise, and told us we were too early, to go, and come back after 4. Later we were greeted by Allan who appeared much freindlier and helpful. He made tea and gave us a slice of cake. Room spotless, as was rest of house. The only thing missing in the room was a small television, that I personally like to watch the morning news. Breakfast good and hot. Overall good value.

We had planned to stay for a couple of nights but ended up staying for only one night as our confirmation had apparently been misplaced. Alan sorted us out very professionally and we ended up wishing we could have stayed longer. The B&B is spotless and very pleasant. Spacious rooms, beautiful views and excellent Scottish breakfast. Alan was very helpful in helping us plan our day trip. He recommended several hiking trails nearby and lent us maps and literature of the area. Definitely a B&B we would return to.

We came across Gairloch View b&b by chance in a brochure produced by the Scottish Tourist Board. We hadn't booked in advance as we like to be flexible but during July & August this is rather inadvisable. However we struck lucky and were warmly welcomed by Sheena & Alan to their clean and beautifully kept house, where we stayed for two nights.
The room was welcoming, had everything we needed - except perhaps a chair - but this could be forgiven as the view was perfect - across to Skye - and the room comfortable and spotless.

Breakfast was a real feast - fruit, yoghurts and a delicious cooked breakfast. This too was served in a dining room overlooking Skye, with a veranda (for when it is not raining there!) where we could have eaten had it not been raining!

I would strongly recommend this b&b to any of my friends, as apart from the above comments, it was good value for money. I would love to return there if ever we are in that area.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view over the loch!

Enjoyed our two night stay here. Very friendly and welcoming. Great location close to some fab restaurants. Spotlessly clean and a very good breakfast. Gairoch is a beautiful place with a fantastic beach a couple of mile away. Would definately return. Just to see that view!

My wife and I stayed just the one night with Alan and Sheena, enjoyed it very much and thought it excellent value. When we booked they were so helpful with advice about local restaurants and facilities. We were made very welcome on arrival and were impressed by the immaculate appearance and fresh feel of our room and the facilities provided. My wife liked the small soaps much preferring this to the dispensers which are very prevalent these days.The only TV is in a shared lounge but that is a blessing. One can avoid the TV if you want or, as we did, share an evening with the other guests. The breakfast was excellent and my request for a croissant was no problem and I was soon presented with a freshly-baked delicious croissant.
The property is called Gairloch View for a reason. It says it in the name and although it was not a clear morning when we were there the view is stunning and we could even see Skye far into the distance. There is lots to see in the Gairloch area and I can't think you will get better value than at Gairloch View with Alan and Sheena. Highly recommended.
