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.

A wonderful B&B in Lochcarron! The room was lovely and breakfast was great too (they were able to accommodate my request for a vegetarian breakfast – it was delicious!) loads of free overnight parking all around the B&B. Check-in was easy and Lorna was a wonderful host. Would 10/10 recommend and would happily stay again!

Laura

 

Beautiful B&B with incredible views right along the Loch. Highly recommended for anyone coming by Lochcarron. Gary was very helpful with local tips and suggestions, with the check in process seamless. The breakfast Gary prepared was hearty and delicious. Hope to stay again in the future!

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!

“Lorna’s B&B is a beautiful place in a very special town. She and her husband are both very friendly and welcoming and we enjoy chatting with them. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was very spacious, and breakfast was absolutely delicious. Very convenient with a beautiful view. I can’t say enough good things about this place and highly recommended it !”

“Gary and Lorna are perfect hosts and this is a truly lovely B&B in a fabulous location on the waterfront. If you are thinking of Lochcarron then look no further as you cannot go wrong here.”

“Lorna is an easygoing young lady with great hospitality. She explained everything to us with patience and provided useful tips for local traveling. And we got a lovely, neat, comfy room with a stunning view! If I’m going to highland in future I’m sure I’ll chose to stay at her house again. 房东Lorna非常热情好客,而且做的早餐巨好吃!房间很干净,窗外就是非常漂亮的湖景。Lorna还为我们提供了当地开车出行的一些建议,如果再去高地自驾游,我大概还会住她家,如果定的到的话。

 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

“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.”

Lorna and Gary are most obliging hosts. The bed was super comfortable, the shower hot and breakfast delicious. Thank you.

Angela

 

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!

Fiona

 

“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!!”

Lynna

 

“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.”

Jonathan

 

It was just as advertised, warm welcome, comfortable rooms, excellent breakfast, and we look forward to staying there again.

 Peter
 “Lorna and Gary are absolute great hosts! Very welcoming and helpful and great cooks as well! Really enjoyed their Scottish cooked breakfast. The bedroom and ensuite bathroom were just great and the bed was very, very comfy. Lorna even took the time and effort to decorate the bed with Christmas decorations, very nice, really cozy! The cottage is beautifully located and we really wished we could’ve stayed longer to fully enjoy the scenery and surrounding, but unfortunately we could only stay a single night. Will certainly be back if we get the chance!”

“L’endroit idéal où dormir entre Ullapool et l’île de Skye ! La maison est très bien située, au calme, très belle vue sur le loch de la chambre, le petit déjeuner est très bon (même le café!) ! Gary nous a aussi donné de nombreux conseils pour visiter l’île de Skye. Bref je recommande vraiment !”
Translation: “The perfect place to sleep between Ullapool and Isle of Skye! The house is very well located, quiet, beautiful view of the loch of the room, breakfast is very good (even coffee!)! Gary also gave us many tips for visiting the Isle of Skye. In short I would definitely recommend! “

Shannon
“This was my first AirBNB experience and thanks to Lorna and Gary, I had a great stay at Lochcarron!! We arrived at the lovely cottage very late at around 10 pm and Gary was still waiting for us and gave us a warm welcome. Our room was cosy and clean although a little bit small, but the shower was good and we slept very well that night. The breakfast was great and really delicious! If we came back to NC500, we will definitely stay again.”
Zoey
Very kind and helpful hosts. Beautiful location on the loch!”

“Lorna’s BNB was amazing! It had spectacular views and Lorna was exceptional! She went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed. Including giving us local tips, making a special trip to the grocery to make sure I had some vegan food to eat and helping us with every last question we had for her. The room itself is adorable and very clean with an amazing view of the Loch. I will definitely be returning! ”
