Just stayed two nights in this wonderful hotel. Terry and Lynne work very hard to ensure that their guests are properly looked after. Service, comfort, cleanliness and facilities are excellent, with delicious breakfasts to start the day. Thoroughly recommend HHH as a place to stay, and I look forward to staying again next year. Thank you for your hospitality.

Really comfortable friendly place. Terry was always there to recommend places to see, drink and eat. He even drew up a route for our journey up to Oban so that we could avoid the crowds going to the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

The room was comfortable and clean, the breakfast was delicious, and the owners were welcoming and helpful – even offering us some help to avoid the midges given the wedding... More
