So the place was under renovations unfortunately when we were there, wish we had known. And a tour group that was staying there had a Covid outbreak so those things made us feel a little 😬. But it’s a cute place, staff was nice, food was good (not a lot of options near by) but super good place to see Eilean Dunan Castle and be close to all that Isle of Skye has to offer!
