“A fabulous place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2013

We stayed for two nights and had a great break. Janet's welcome was very friendly while also knowing when to give you some space. She had great recommendations for local eats and attractions, including the walks nearby. A lovely room in an idyllic setting, just a couple of minutes from the beach. Heated floors in the lobby and bathroom are a really nice touch.

Great food made this a fantastic weekend. We'd go back any time we're returning to Applecross.

Visited here in February 2013 when the landscape around Applecross is simply stunning. Janet and Lulu the dog made us feel very welcome, and our room was just a haven of tranquility. The towelling robes and slippers were a lovely touch to make us feel extra relaxed. Everything about the Ragged Acre is well considered and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was beautifully cooked, and Janet gets the balance just right between knowing when to chat, and when to leave you alone. We were fortunate enough to take the lovely Lulu for a walk, and on a blustery winter day walking along white coral beaches with a friendly dog was idyllic. You won't find better - go ahead and book it now! But not before we get our next dates organised.

A delightful place in which to stay especially during the winter months when the landscape is so beautiful for walking through. The cottage was comfortable, calming and welcoming thanks to Janet and we look forward to staying there again. Strongly recommended.

stayed at ragged acre for 3 nights at the end of October and had a great time. Room and bathroom were spotless as well as really comfortable. Janet was an ideal host, being really attentive whilst also allowing us our space. Lulu the dog was great as well and Janet was good enough to allow us to take Lulu walking with us.
We arrived a bit late for afternoon tea, but Janet made sure we didnt miss out by putting the cakes in our room for us. She also offerred to drop us off at the pub so we didnt have to take the car (the pub is 3 miles away). Breakfast is ordered the night before and cooked fresh for you sitting down.
We ventured over to Skye from here as well for a day trip, which given the location isnt as long a journey as it seems.
All in all was a great stay and would thouroghly recommend it to anyone wanting a relaxing few days away. You will need to relax after coming over the Bealach na Ba mountain pass - interesting drive, especially in fog!!

We recently stayed at Ragged Acre for 3 nights and had a fantastic time around the Applecross bay area. Janet made us feel right at home and made an excellent cooked breakfast and fruit salad each morning, together with great coffee. The room was really clean and well appointed and the bed was very comfortable. En suite is modern, clean and the heated floor is a nice touch. The room had complimentary walking guides for the area which came in handy and the wifi access allowed us to plan day trips and book local activities, such as sea kayaking and clay pigeon shooting. Lulu the dog is also really good fun and very well behaved!

We would definitely stay again and look forward to trying out some more outdoor activities the next time we're up.

Room Tip: One room only, book early!

My partner and I throughly enjoyed our 2 nights at Ragged Acre, Applecross and perhaps Scotlands best B& B. We ventured to Applecross by train to Strachcarron and then bike over the Bealach na Bà - what a challenge - however the gradual progress up the pass made for a truly memorable experience - lots of time to take in the views and dramatic atmosphere of the pass. Janet's welcoming gesture of afternoon tea was tremendously appreciated and devoured! The ensuite room was comfortable and appropriately luxurious for the setting and our experience. We could have stayed longer however the route north with a wind that pushed us all the way called. Looking forward to a future opportunity to return.

Applecross itself is enough to charm your pants off, but Janet and her dog Lulu make Ragged Acre truly magical.

From the afternoon tea upon arrival to Lulu's enthusiastic greetings (not forgetting Janet's helpfulness) this B&B is very special. Nicely furnished, clean and very comfortable. Book now before the only room gets filled: we were incredibly lucky to get a last minute cancellation and loved our stay.

Room Tip: As there's only one you won't have too much problem. Book it now!
