The Ceilidh Place is a multifaceted establishment nestled in the epic and beautiful surroundings of Wester Ross in the Scottish Highlands. This unique venue, born from the aspirations of actor Robert Urquhart in 1970, has evolved from a small café in a boatshed into a vibrant hub for eating, meeting, talking, singing, and being. Today, The Ceilidh Place encompasses a Hotel, Bunkhouse, Café/Bar, Restaurant, Bookshop, and Music Venue, each offering its own charm and appeal.

Comfortable and Quaint Accommodations

Hotel Rooms:
All it’s rooms are designed to offer a cosy and comfortable experience. They are simply furnished, most with a private bathroom, and do not include televisions. Instead, each room is equipped with a classy radio and a well-stocked bookshelf, with books selected by various well-known readers.

For those looking for a more budget-friendly option, the bunkhouse offers basic bunk-bedded rooms for one to four persons. Located across the car park in the Clubhouse, it can accommodate up to 32 guests, ideal for walking/cycling clubs, large family gatherings, or those who prefer to spend more on experiences than accommodations.

Living Room and Honesty Bar:
The living room, with its adjoining pantry, is the sociable heart of the hotel. Here, guests can make tea and coffee any time of the day or night. The honesty bar allows guests to pour their own drinks, creating a comfortable and trusting environment. This space is perfect for socializing, reading, or simply enjoying the balcony views on sunny days.

Culinary Experiences and Social Hub at the Ceilidh Place

The café/bar, where The Ceilidh Place’s journey began, is well-stocked with a variety of drinks, including a wide selection of gins from the Hebridean Islands and an extensive wine list. The knowledgeable staff are happy to guide guests through a tour of Scotland with our various drams.

Led by Scott Morrison for over 15 years, the restaurant transforms in the evening, ready to serve inventive and locally-sourced dishes.

The emphasis is on local produce, including deer, lamb, fish, and seasonal vegetables.
