We stayed at the Antler coming back from the Highlands. Best B&B we had on our one week trip in Scotland. Great hospitality, spacious & beautufully decorated rooms (free wifi in entire house), very clean, excellent dinner and breakfast (both with choice). Loved the spectacular view of the coast! We will be back!

One of our final B&B's before returning to the south. The Antlers was welcoming and in a magnificent setting. Our room was HUGE and comfortable and offered one of the best night sleep we'd had in ages!! Breakfast was to order and offered a wide choice and we even took up the offer of evening meal (not to be missed!!!)... More

We stopped here on route to John O' Groats and spent a lovely night in the company of the friendly proprietors Sandy and Sandra. We received a warm welcome, a beautiful bedroom for the night, the offer of dinner and a spectacular breakfast. Good old fashioned hospitality, we will be going back!!

I had such a wonderful stay with Sandy and Sandra that I went back a week later. Everything was wonderful, from the rooms and meals, to the hospitality and welcome from the two of them. Upon arrival, Sandra welcomed me, gave me my choice of rooms - all of which are lovely - and then offered me tea. It was... More

We had booked into a B and B in Wick however on driving past and seeing the area we decided not to stay and would take our chances and try and find somewhere else to stay. This turned out to be the best decision of our trip. On seeing the sign for Antler B&B we turned down the road, We... More

My son and I had been looking for a B&B for the night and were giving up hope as there are very few in this part of Scotland. My son said "We need a miracle." Shortly after we saw the sign for The Antlers B&B. What a welcome! The door was thrown wide open by Sandy who then gave me... More

We received a warm welcome and great hospitality from Sandy and Sandra. The house and rooms were lovely, very comfortable with great views. The breakfasts were delicious and there was a good choice from the evening menu as well. We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay and we would definitely go back
