Met on the pier by Cara, who took our bags directly to the house, while we walked the short walk up. We always get a warm welcome. As you approach the driveway up to The Gathering their is a sign that says Knoydarts Premier Accommodation - that is more than true. The Gathering is a modern B&B with 4 guest...

Thanks Cara for a fantastic weekend, from your welcome off the ferry,your kindness throughout our stay to the very comfortable bedrooms and delicious homemade food.The stunning views and hot tub were an added bonus, rounded off by a great fiddle recital from your twin boys. I'm definitely planning on coming back!

Absolutely outstanding stay at The Gathering. The service afforded us by Cara, Jackie and the rest of the gang was in the words one 56yr old member of our group, 'the finest hospitality he had encountered in nearly 40 years of travelling'. I could not argue. The food was divine. The scallops referred to by another reviewer were indeed, fist...

This B&B is a problem for us as it sets the bar so high that all other B&B's struggle to come close to what Cara has built at The Gathering. A super NY's stay, an untouchable location and with food that you would gladly travel to have on its own. The scallops were the size of a fist. Thanks again...

Loved this place. We arrived off the ferry in the dark & she unexpectedly came to collect us rather than leave us to struggle to find it. The hostess is an amazing cook - food was really on another level & portions were huge so prepare to put on a pound or two! Views are beautiful and the B&B is...

The food served up in the Gathering is some of the best food we've had at a B&B anywhere in Scotland. Everything was delish with hungry walker portions. Really impressed with Cara in the kitchen. It's hard to believe there's only one Cook in the kitchen. I has a delish salmon & pickled herring salad starter & my wife had...

We stayed here for one night and had an amazing time. The views are outstanding, especially from the hot tub on the terrace. Breakfast was vast and delicious - freshly cooked to order and more than either of us could finish. The rooms are very clean and comfortable with all amenities. The night sky was so clear and we even...

Stayed with 2 friends at the Gathering and could not praise it high enough. Food excellent and really comfy beds. Cara and her team very eager to make your stay enjoyable. Try the Mallaig kippers- fantastic. Also had an impromptu concert in the village one sunny afternoon. Very relaxing- thank you.

The accommodations were gorgeous - comfortable and clean. Everything was new and fresh. The bed was one of the most comfortable ones we had on our 2 weeks+ in Scotland. Breakfast was amazing. So fresh and well prepared! The perfect start to a long day of hiking! Despite all this being excellent, it was still outshone by the hospitality of...

Just spent 2 wonderful days at The Gathering being well looked after by Cara and her wee team! A wonderful location with great food both at breakfast and in the evenings. Cara collected our luggage from the ferry and we took the short walk to The Gathering, taking in the spectacular views. A great time was had by all and...

“Great views from upstairs rooms and the conservatory”

“I believe rooms upstairs would have felt a bit more away from the breakfast bustle if you're a late sleeper, but best ask when booking.”

“Book upstairs room if you can, could be a little noisy if you are in a downstairs room and guests come in late / go our early.”
