We last stayed in 2005 and were gratified to repeat the experience in 2016 with just the same welcome, relaxed atmosphere, excellent food and the best supporting services to make even the wet days worthwhile.

Stunning walk down the hill to the place. A warm welcome when we got there with a very homely feel. We were well looked after throughout. All four courses of food were incredible, all homemade and well presented and reasonably priced. If you're not staying there remember a torch and sturdy shoes to walk back up the hill!

Exactly what you need after a day exploring wild knoydart. Good atmosphere, stunning restaurant, good value for money and delicious food. Walk there or drive there or get a boat there. Just remember to bring long sleeves and boots for the Hill 😉

A perfect lodge right on the coast, stunning scenery, blissfully quiet, good hot showers after a hard day hiking, invaluable local knowledge from Martin and food from Liz and team that far exceeded our expectations. Accessible by boat from Mallaig.

This was my wife's 4th visit and my first - and the location, food and accommodation all lived up to what she had promised. We stayed for a week in one of the comfortable Stone Lodges with double beds a few steps away from the restaurant.

We walked over to Doune from Inverie, a beautiful 5.5 mile walk with stunning views. If you are walking watch out for the small sign pointing down to restaurant. There is quite a steep hill path approximately half a mile long from the road to the restaurant. When we arrived we enjoyed drinks on the decking before being treated to... More

We went to doune last night taking our boat from Inverie. An amazing place, sheltered harbour, views to die for and the food was spectacular. The smoked salmon mouse was the best I have ever tasted and the venison casserole sublime. Best of all the raspberry tart and cream. £35/ head included 3 courses and home made cheese and biscuits,...
