“A great location and wonderful host”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

This B&B is right on the seafront and our bedroom had lovely views of the bay. Our host Fiona was really friendly and persuaded us both to take a trip on her dad's boat to see the seals. It was a beautiful morning and the scenery fabulous. We enjoyed chatting with Fiona in the open plan dining/kitchen area as she cooked our hearty scottish breakfasts.
The house is 'lived in' and so has the usual everyday clutter we all expect and this helps to make it feel warm and friendly. Our bedroom was quite small compared to others we have stayed in recently but was clean and warm. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: One has an en suite.

We had a lovely stay there at the MacKenzie's ! The bedrooms are lovely and comfortable, bathroom is clean and nice. The couple is really welcoming and how to say the breakfast is more than delicious ! I have to say that some friend staying with us had an health issue and the MacKenzie were really helpful ! It's in this case of situation where you recognize valuable people ! I recommend to stay there !

Room Tip: Ask for the bedroom with the view !

Stayed one night, would like to have stayed longer. Really friendly hosts, brilliant breakfast and a comfortable room overlooking the loch. The room wasn't on-suite but the bathroom was right next door and was very nice with a great shower. Good value for money too. Highly recommended.

Just back from Bonnie Scotland during which 3 nights were spent at Mackenzies B and B at Plockton near Skye. Plockton alone merits a visit because of the stunning scenery and the fact that it appears to have its own microclimate at times with weather much better than locations just a few miles away. The Palm Tree's take a little getting used to ( it is Scotland after all ) and you will not be disappointed to view such beautiful surroundings on your first visit.
Mackenzies is run by Jane (mum), and Fiona (daughter) and they are everything a guest could wish for in terms of being a visiting guest. Our party ( 2 couples ) stayed for 3 nights , and had the place to ourselves, the single room being vacant. Stunning views as the Loch is only 30 feet away from our bedroom windows, and just the other side of the road. The rooms were both very comfy, one being on-suite, and the other had exclusive use of the large bathroom next door. A nice touch is that each room had a decanter with a large wee dram of Whisky ( FREE GRATIS ) courtesy of Jane, to help us sleep at night!
Breakfast was served in a very comfortable and homely family kitchen, cooked to order by Fiona. She did a sterling job, and the waffles on the last morning were to die for!
All in all we were very sorry to leave as the whole experience will take some beating.
Finally we ate at 3 different venues, Plockton Shores, Plockton Inn, and Plockton Hotel. All three were very good on service and quality of choice and cooking, so why not give them all a go as we did. Its doesn't get much better!

This B&B is beautifully located on the seafront at Plockton, a village which is itself breathtaking. The view from our room overlooking the harbour was delightful and the room itself was extremely comfortable. Fiona & her parents go to the effort of adding little extra touches like leaving some whisky in the rooms so you can have a dram before bed. Only thing I would say is that it is weird that the ensuite bathroom door has windows in it and the blind used to block these doesn't really do its job properly!

Breakfast was great and served at the family's large dining table in their open plan kitchen/dining area. You will therefore sit with other guests as the family prepares the breakfast for you (homemade waffles are gorgeous). This may not suit everyone but we thought it was lovely and really improved the atmosphere of the B&B in comparison to those with formal breakfast rooms. We would stay here again in a flash.

I stayed at MacKenzies with my brother in late July. Jane, Calum and their daughter were excellent hosts and very welcoming It did make me smile when the previous reviewer said it felt like they were staying in a strangers house...isn't that the same in any B&B, unless you visit the same one regularly.

Breakfasts were excellent with Jane's freshly made fruit salad a highlight. I can also recommend Calum's Seal Trips which are excellent value for money (and no charge if you don't see any seals). The only slight downside was that the toilet in the bathroom didn't flush most of the time but that didn't spoil our stay. The view from the bedroom window over Loch Carron is probably worth the money on it's own and we shall certainly enquire about staying here again when we return either later this year or early next.
