About Us

The Old Smiddy Guest House bed & breakfast is in the small and picturesque village of Laide. We are situated directly on the popular North Coast 500 route, in the North West Highlands of Scotland overlooking Gruinard Bay.

The Old Smiddy Guesthouse was built in 1911 and served the area as a blacksmith for many years, until its purpose was no longer needed. During this time building has gone through changes that served the public. And now  the Old Smiddy serves the public by sharing its history while giving somewhere to escape, relax and refresh.


Being sat directly on a section of a stunning part of North Coast 500 route in Laide, we provide comfortable rooms, a tasty breakfast and when available warm evening meals. Making this an ideal place for travellers to stay and relax before the next leg of they're adventure.

All rooms are en-suite and are equipped with colour TV's and tea/coffee making facilities. Each room is also supplied with towels, bathrobes and slippers. Ironing boards and irons are available on request.

We have the garden room when available if you wish, for a small charge to bring your pet along for the adventure. 

In our cosy guest living room there are books, board games and Ordnance Survey Maps for guests to use.

When the weather is being kind there is also the patio and garden to relax in.
