Wonderful B&B across the river from Eilean Donan castle. Our room was well appointed and very comfortable. Breakfast was great! It was a great place to stay for a night on our way north. It is a short drive to Kyle Lochalsh and then to Skye.

I have recently stayed at the Eilean a Cheo Guest House for 4 nights and this is my second visit. The guest house is run by Mary and Raymond Moran. I really enjoyed staying here. Our room (room 3) was first class as well as the Highland Breakfasts. The guest house looks over to Eilean Donan Castle and once you...

I stayed in Eilean a Cheo in September and it was lovely. The room was perfect for the 2 of us, big bed and the view of the castle was amazing and we managed to see the most beautiful sunset. Mary was a wonderful host. We loved the breakfast. We would stay here again in a heart beat!

I stayed here for a few nights while on business nearby and this B&B exceeded all my expectations, none of the photos really do it justice. The rooms are modern, decorated very stylishly, and are jam-packs with facilities such as tv's, tea and coffee facilities, a fridge and wifi. The hosts are very friendly, knowledgable of the area extremely accommodating....

We enjoyed a lovely 3 day stay at Eilean a Cheo and can certainly recommend it to others. The location is good and within easy walking distance of Eilean Donan Castle and the Clachan Pub (good food and drink) in Dornie. The rooms were well decorated and the bed very comfortable. The room is a little on the small side,...

Stayed 2 nights in a nice clean and bright room on the ground floor, very comfortable king-size bed, and two small club chairs with a small round table, so there was somewhere for both of us to sit. Usually, there's only one chair and the other person has to sit on the bed, which isn't always convenient. Rather a small...

“Ask for a room with a castle view.”

“We chose rooms with castle view, rooms 1 & 2. It was a nice view and we could indeed see the castle, but don't expect too much - a large part of it was blocked by a big white house.”

“We chose one of the smaller rooms to save money, and it was small :). I'd splurge and go for regular room.”
