Castle Cottage – offering quality accommodation right at the heart of Lochcarron village. With a waterfront location and amazing sea views, this is a wonderful spot from which to explore the NW Highlands of Scotland, as a staging point along the NC500 or as a stopover on the way to/from Skye! We have had the pleasure of hosting a fantastic range of guests from locations around the world and really enjoy the stories of your journeys around Scotland. We have included here a small selection of the reviews we have received online.
“Io adoro Lorna! La amo! Lei è super gentile è super carina, come se fosse una mamma. La stanza è bella, pulita e profumata! Consiglio di fare la gita a elgol per vedere i delfini e ele foche e di soggiornare da lei!! Super super consigliato”
What a wonderful place to stay.Lorna and Gary went out of their way to accommodate us at short notice as we were wanting to stay for the evening in this wonderful seaside setting. Great decor and amazing food which made the morning breakfast a treat. Definitely would recommend the stop and as its situated on the North Coast 500 if you are touring.Will be back again for sure.
Schönes BnB am Wasser mit toller Aussicht und ausgezeichnetem Frühstück. Lorna ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit und eine perfekte Gastgeberin. Es gibt ein schönes Frühstückszimmer mit Ausblick wo man auch abends gemütlich sitzen kann. Sehr zu empfehlen!
After staying the previous night in a very snowy Ullapool, in a freezing cold hotel, my wife and I were pleased to get to the fantastic castle cottage, in the beautiful village of Lochcarron. We received a lovely warm welcome from Lorna who is a lovely woman, who was always willing to chat and recommend things as was her husband Gary. We had a beautiful double room with a view of Lochcarron, it has a king size bed, and a huge bathroom with separate shower and wonderful corner bath. Breakfast was a very hot, and tasty full cooked breakfast, preceded by cereal, with toast, and plenty of hot Yorkshire Tea. Lorna and Gary gave us a couple if names of places to try for food, The Lochcarron Hotel, and the Carron restaurant which about 10min drive out of Lochcarron on the Kyle of lochalash road, as we had a 2nt stay we tried both ( the fish and chips at the carron are fantastic). We cannot recommend castle cottage highly enough, it is a gem of a B/B, and we will be going back when next in the area
Lorna has an amazing place with a view that will have you staring out the window for hours. She gave us a great tip for some ruins to check out with its local resident (Border Collie) who insists you throw his stick. Thank you again and we look forward to coming back. Lewis and Stacey. Australia.
Lorna was prompt to respond, communicated very well. She did not act like checking in at 9pm was a huge dent in her day which was even more welcoming and inviting. Her beds were so comfortable….omg…..I feel like my body was stuck to the bed in the morning. But the full Scottish Breakfast was to die for! I really appreciated the small touches to the amenities as well: stickers on the toilet paper to let u know it was yours, perfectly laid out soft sheets on the bed that hardly looked touched, the artisan black pudding and even letting me take a picture of her because I was so impressed at her running to and fro to ensure our stay with her was the absolute BEST! Out of all the B&B’s I have stayed in – this one felt like a 5 star B&B – It nearly convinced me that I need to move to Loch Carron. So glad I found this diamond in the rough 😉 ps- ask her husband about all his climbing adventures – you won’t regret it- TRUST ME! Cheers and have a great time in Scotland

The room was very clean and the bed incredibly comfortable – we slept like logs – and woke up to the beautiful view of the lake followed by a delicious cooked breakfast. Highly recommend!”
“Lorna’s place was excellent, couldn’t have been made more welcome, a lovely large clean room with a fantastic view of Loch Carron. The breakfast was great just what we need before a long drive. I would highly recommend a stay at Lorna’s, you won’t be disappointed! ”
“Lorna and Gary were superb hosts! They always made us feel so welcome and were such great people to talk to! Despite us contacting them pretty last minute Lorna was ever prompt to reply us and provide us with all the help we needed!

“Lovely views, great breakfast and friendly host. Would recommend it for the NC500 route.”
“We were the first people that had requested boiled eggs. So we found out on our last day that Gary had been up all night practising with YouTube videos on how to make them. And they were perfect! That says it all about Lorna & Gary’s hospitality. The place is very stylish and super clean with great views of the lake and mountain. Not to mention the fab breakfast! We had a cosy room overlooking the lake, and the breakfast also had lake views too. Really enjoyed our stay. A warm couple to stay with, with a great breakfast is just what you need to feel at home.”
“Fab place beautiful location …. fantastic hosts … amazing breakfast …. couldn’t wish for more Highly recommended xx”
“Very comfortable room with stunning views of the loch just in front of the house. Our hosts were vey friendly and helpful, and helped us reserve a table at the local restaurant. The full breakfast delicious! Just a short drive away from the tourist frenzy of southern Skye. We really enjoyed our stay.”
Lorna and Gary are most obliging hosts. The bed was super comfortable, the shower hot and breakfast delicious. Thank you.
My boyfriend and I stayed here overnight as part of our road trip. Accommodation had a great view over the water and plenty of parking nearby. Lorna was a very friendly and welcoming host. Our room was warm and tastefully decorated and the bed, very comfortable! She suggested a few options for places to eat, so we opted for, and can now highly recommend “Lochcarron Bistro”. Lorna also provided the best cooked breakfast of the entire trip! Delicious!
“Wonderful, cozy place that we enjoyed very much. Our host Lorna was so warm and welcoming, it was nice to chat with such a friendly person while we were checking in and having breakfast. Speaking of which, breakfast was made by her and was AMAZING! So yummy! Can’t say enough good things about this place, definitely stay here if you warm a super cozy and comfy stay while in the area. The view out of our window was of the gorgeous Loch as well, right in front of us! The room itself was really nicely decorated and clean, just perfect! Nothing more we could ask for. Just lovely all around. Would stay here again in a heart beat!!”
“A wonderful B&B in a great location, perfect for a stop before travailing further up the county. Lorna was very quick to reply and even pointed out a local road closure that would of been a shock (and a long unplanned diversion) had we not know.”
It was just as advertised, warm welcome, comfortable rooms, excellent breakfast, and we look forward to staying there again.
