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.

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

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

This is the first time we have received a "very good" rather than "excellent", so that is disappointing because we try very hard to please everyone. We are sorry this reviewer found difficulty finding us. We are in the country, but only 7 miles, (a ten minute car journey), from the city centre, Our geographic co-ordinates are on our web... More

From the beginning to the end we were lovingly cared for by Deirdre as from a mother. From Alistair we were provided with daily updated weather-dependent sight seeing information and all the trips were great, we were so thankful! The delicious and extensive Highland breakfast is compiled to personal taste. The rooms are great and the bathroom even better, the... More
