I have been visiting their restaurant for 5 years on an annual visit and it never fails to deliver. The food is fantastic. Beautifully cooked. Well presented. Portions are huge. Price very fair. If in area pop in. You will not be disappointed.

Get place to stay and eat if you're travelling to the highlands. Superb home cooked meals and potions that'll fill you Donna and the gang always offer a warm friendly welcome, This place is well worth a detour just to sample the food.
