We arrived late on a Saturday evening, we hadn't eaten so Mark offered to pick us up fish and chips whilst we showered after the drive from Inverness airport. Both Mary and Mark are very helpful and obliging and would do anything to help out their guests. We had a lovely meal at a very reasonable price and we slept... More

We arrived just in the middle of our two weeks trip to Scotland with a five years old girl. We were in our way for a day trip to Orkney so we booked two nights Definitely the best stay in our trip. Lovely family room, great hospitality, good food. Best value for money we ever experienced. Thank you

We stayed here for one night before the start or our JOGLE on July 20th. Having driven up from Shropshire we didn't arrive until after 10:00 o'clock but Mark and Mary were happy to wait up and welcome us. Our rooms were extremely comfortable and the full Scottish breakfast the next morning completely fortified us for the long journey ahead.... More
