Deirdre and Alasdair charming and most helpful. It was an absolute pleasure to stay in their beautiful home. The grounds were beautiful and it was great for walking around the area. Not far to travel to local places after a wonderful local breakfast.

Together with my partner we spent 6 nights at Old Drynie while exploring the Highlands as part of our Summer holiday. We received a warm welcome when we first arrived and a welcome cup of tea. Our en-suite bedroom was very comfortable and we spent the first evening walking around the extensive grounds and 'drinking in' the superb views of... More

If you want beautiful gardens, a gorgeous B&B and simply the best service you will ever get. This is the place. Its location on the Black Isle allows you easy access to Inverness, Loch Ness and the west coast. Despite the rural location its only a taxi ride from Inverness town centre. (Try Hootananny for live Scots music) Alexander and... More

Deirdre and Alasdair are fantastic hosts and very helpful with great local knowledge (and they cook a very tasty breakfast!). The house is beautiful and set in a breathtaking location. My partner and I had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay.

It's hard to know where to begin with the superlatives. The house and location are stunning with beautiful gardens and meticulous attention to detail. Our hosts, Alasdair and Deirdre are charming, doing everything within their power to make your stay enjoyable. They are knowledgeable at both the local and national level and eager to engage with you. They are also... More

They go out of their way to ensure your stay is both comfortable and friendly with a great local knowledge to aid in any information you may need.

We couldn't have been more pleased with our experience with Alasdair and Deirdre at Old Drynie House. We were travelling with our 22-month old and my brother-in-law, and were lucky enough to book the family suite. The two large rooms adjoined and one had an ensuite with a shower and huge jet tub, not to mention the most beautiful views!... More

This has been the feeling of our stay at the Old Drynie House...unfortunately a too short stay! The family room is fantastic, a flat inside the house, with a very big bathroom and a magnificent view of the garden. Breakfast is excellent and rich, Deidre and Alasdair are wonderful hosts, always helpful and friendly.

I recommend Old Drynie with great enthusiasm. We were in Scotland for 16 days, with 5 days at Old Drynie House. This B&B is conveniently located on the Black Isle (just a few miles miles from Inverness), sparkling clean, full of homey comforts, quiet, and surrounded by lovely gardens and meadows. If we can manage another trip to Scotland, we... More

Fantastic facilities, brilliant hosts, wonderful breakfasts and stunning location with beautiful views over the Moray Firth. A fleeting visit on a tight schedule and we only wish we could have stayed longer .... but we will return! Alasdair and Deidre made us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived and could not have been more helpful in every respect.... More
