The Clachlan is without doubt, the most luxurious B&B we have ever stayed in. Lee S’s comments below about attention to detail are right on the money and I can only endorse everything he says. We too drove the North Coast 500 in October 2015 and The Clachlan provided the perfect overnight stop in Wick. There is little point in... More

We were doing the North Coast 500 and decided to stop over in Wick. We chose this place based on other reviews, and have to say, this is one of the best B&B's we've used. Elspeth greeted us on our arrival and showed us to our beautifully appointed en suite room. She told us where we could dine in the... More

We stayed here for just one night on our way to John o groats. The room was newly refurbished to a high standard. The en suite was large newly refurbished and spotless. The breakfast was tasty and hot. Overall it was the quality of a four star hotel. Superb!

We were given a very warm welcome to The Clachan by Elspeth and she was a most hospitable hostess throughout our short stay. Nothing was too much trouble and she gave us some good tips on were to eat in Wick! Our room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. And breakfast was delicious. Would highly recommend.

We stayed with Elspeth for the first time in August 2015 while visiting family in Wick. Elspeth is the perfect host who makes you feel welcome and relaxed in her lovely home. Breakfast was delicious, we will definitely stay again and whole heartedly recommend to anyone visiting Wick.

This is by far the best bed and breakfast we have ever stayed in, and better than alot of the so called top class hotels. After a very warm and friendly welcome from Elspeth we were shown to room 3, and what a room it is, very large, spotless, lovely decorated, even electric blankets on the beds, a really thoughtful...

The Clachan was a pleasure to visit , starting with the genuine welcome from Elspeth, shown to a spacious and spotless room, and great en suite bathroom, (terrific towels! ) the entire booking was impressive. The room was quiet with extremely high quality furnishings, and the bathroom was like new. Breakfast to order, again excellent and a slightly later check... More

The best way to start the journey off to john o'groats. Lovely staff, confy rooms and amazing breakfast! Staying in room 2, I'm sure any of them will fit the high standard as this one. Close to the centre town, next to lidl, the b&b gives you the way to visit the old Wick castle, 5min away.
