A group of 5 friends stayed here during our walk along the Sutherland Trail. Lindsay and Mandy were perfect hosts. They were very helpful and excellent value-for-money. We had tea and biscuits on arrival, and an excellent 3-course dinner, plus coffee (all for £10!). Mandy even made a special effort to produce 1 vegetarian meal (which was excellent!). The rooms...

Wonderful welcome by owners as Lindsay puts your bikes away and Mandy makes a cuppa. The views are heaven - so nice to stand and stare after cycling the miles. We took advantage of evening meal - as did other guests - so a very sociable evening and breakfast the following morning. Lovely food and lovely couple. Don't miss this... More

We stayed here for three nights and enjoyed all of them. On two nights we also enjoyed the really good cooking - you HAVE to try that. As it is located in the middle of nowhere (really nice indeed to get away) there also aren't too many choices. The rooms were good and clean, the view from the rooms was... More

Six of us biked from Glasgow to Durness and this was our favourite stop. We stayed at some great B&Bs on the way but none matched this one for the welcome. We arrived late due to a much needed rest and dram at the Crask a few miles before. The ride down into Altnaharra was stunning, a special unspoilt landscape.... More

The owners where wonderful people. They fixed a fantastic dinner and breakfast. They gave us a lot of good information about the area. If you are biking or touring the area, you must stay here. Mandy and Lyndsey are some of the nicest people you will fine any where.

There is a theme to these reviews - that nothing is too much trouble for the hosts - and I say the same! A welcome overnight stay. Thank you. A must for every hungry cyclist. With the bar opposite it satisfies the thirst too.

If you want a very welcoming and friendly place to stay then look no further. Mandy and Lyndsay are top hosts where nothing is too much trouble. A superb evening meal topped off with a few beers in the bar across the road made for a memorable visit. All you LEJOG riders get yourself booked in here, you will not... More

I stayed in 8 B&B/small hotels on my highland riding holiday and overall this scores top marks. Mandy is just the most friendly person you could meet and it was the only stop where we were immediately offered tea and biscuits on arrival. The rooms were clean, comfortable and well equpped - good stock of tea, coffe and biscuits with... More

Nothing was too much trouble for Mandy. She provided vegetarian food, packed lunches, lovely fresh fruit as well as the usual options at breakfast and was prepared to fit in all meals around our convenience.

"Would you like a cup of tea?" Just what you want to hear after a five hour drive! Wonderful hosts, genuine dog lovers and first class, flexible service. Three course evening meal was delicious and all for a tenner! Perfect after a long day in the hills. Highly recommended!
