Close to the route of the North Coast 500 the Old Smiddy Guest House bed & breakfast and self-catering Bungalow,  Laide, both provide excellent accommodation. They  are situated in the Wester Ross area of the North West Highlands of Scotland overlooking Gruinard Bay. Aultbea, Loch Ewe, Inverewe Gardens, Gairloch and Ullapool are all within easy reach.

The owners of the Old Smiddy,  Julie and Julian,  gained 4 stars in Visit Scotland’s quality assurance scheme for bed and breakfast accommodation in their first year.

Although we have left Scotland’s Best B and B’s and Visit Scotland in 2016  we still strive to provide the same  warm welcome,  high standards, relaxed and friendly atmosphere that we always did. We also hope we give our guests an opportunity to enjoy the delights of the wonderful coastline and  countryside of the Scottish North West Highlands.  

Julie is  committed to serving  delicious,

high quality breakfasts and, if available, evening meals,  using local and regional produce wherever possible.  We are listed in a Taste of Scotland an organisation promoting excellent food

in Scotland.  Many of  our guests have mentioned the excellent breakfasts and dinners  in our visitors book and on tripadvisor and many of our returners do so because of the food that they  have enjoyed at the Old Smiddy.  



 Wester Ross abounds in spectacular scenery and a wide variety of wildlife, as well as being rich in history,

both ancient and modern. The pages headed ‘A Week in Laide’ give suggestions for exploring the area around the Old Smiddy.

Laide and Mellon Udrigle, Aultbea and Loch Ewe, Gairloch, Inverewe Gardens and Ullapool are all  worthy of at least a days visit. There is also a huge variety of walks, ranging from a gentle stroll along one of the many beaches to a days trek into the mountains for the more experienced.    Further information can be found on the sites of three local tourists associations, namely

Visit Wester Ross,  Gale and Loch Ewe Action Forum  and Visitlochewe    

The self-catering bungalow at the  Old Smiddy

was built about 1980 by a former owner of the Old Smiddy.  

During the early part of 2009 it was completely renovated, modernised and redecorated.

This self-catering property now has a modern kitchen,

a new family bathroom

and an en-suite shower room for the master bedroom.

Completely rewired, the Bungalow now enjoys central heating with the added bonus of solar tubes.

The renovations were completed by replacing all the

furniture and kitchen equipment with high quality, easy to use and comfortable products.
