Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This has been for sure our best airbnb experience so far!
    Karelia was very helpful, kind and welcomed us with her heart. She made us the best Scottish breakfast we ever tried. We have felt like we had found a little paradise where to rest! The view is stunning, the house is warm, clean and the bed is very comfy. Absolutely nothing to complain about! We will come back for sure to explore the area better. Thank you so much to you Karelia for welcoming us with so much attention and kindness! We loved staying at your lovely house!

  • Staying with Karelia at her cottage in Applecross was such a pleasant surprise! We didn't get to spend nearly as much time there as we would have liked, but the drive was spectacular, the BnB was cozy and comfortable, and the views were stunning! Karelia was very welcoming and helpful, we really hope to come back again some day!

  • Karelia's was one of our favorite parts of our trip!! Her home was so wonderful and inviting, which was exactly how she was as well. She was very easy-going and fun to talk to. We felt very comfortable here and would recommend this place to anyone and everyone who is kind and wants a nice place to stay. The breakfast was AMAZING as well. The entire experience was extremely inexpensive for the quality that we received. You really can't go wrong staying here!

  • The surroundings are extremely pleasant and nature, with the sheep and the sea just in front of us. We can rest quietly there, and have a walk everywhere outside. The landscapes are so beautiful between the lochs and the moor and mountains...
    Karelia is very kind, she leaves her kitchen for our cooking evening meals, she prepares wonderful breakfast, and excellent cakes for picnic.She gives us a lot of information on the countryside.

  • Of all the places we visited in Scotland this was our favourite place! Karelia's b&b is so lovely and the view from the balcony is enough to make you want to never leave. Karelia herself was very friendly and helpful and her breakfast was just delicious. I would def recommend staying here.
