The owners are loverly people! The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom we had was marvelous and the breakfast was delightful. And the view of Skye - amazing! It truly was the best place we stayed during our entire visit to Scotland.

We absolutely loved our stay at Ceol Na Mara Bed and Breakfast! It exceeded our expectations in every way. The room was cozy with an awesome view and Ross was a wonderful host! He gave us many tips of things to see and do in the area. Breakfast was delicious and the location was perfect for our trip to Skye.... More

Stayed for 2 nights in August and had a wonderful time. Jayne and Ross were the perfect hosts and really looked after us. Jayne cooked a delicious, hearty breakfast which set us up for the day and supplied us with beautiful fresh white linen and towels. The place is immaculate and the views from the rooms are spectacular. We went... More

We only stayed 2 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. Jayne was a wonderful hostess - so helpful with tips on things to see and do. And we got to hear Ross play his bagpipes and had a great discussion about music. The breakfasts were just perfect. We stayed in the king room - quiet and spotlessly clean,... More

We had a very good stay at Jayne's B&B. Jayne and her husband (sorry don't remember his name) were very great! The room was clean, spacious and of course cozy. Breakfast was tasty and had a lot of choices. The smoked salmon/scrambled eggs is delicious ! Would definitely stay again if we have the chance !

Wonderful stay, really excellent facilities, very comfortable, very clean, lovely breakfast with homemade bread and yoghurt. Better than any other guest house or hotel we stayed in on the Hebrides, would thoroughly recommend.

What a lovely place. Right on the waters edge and Ross and Jayne have a treasure of a place to share with anyone who stays here. The attention to detail in the style and decoration of the room and house were quite nice. We had the added enjoyment of seeing Ross's workshop and hearing him play the bagpipes....very lovely.
