We stayed three nights at the Cawdor House in Nairn on our recent visit to the Highlands. We found the rooms to be comfortable and the breakfast to be outstanding! Paul and everyone at Cawdor House worked very hard to make our stay just perfect! Breakfast was above and beyond; our sons are still talking about the porridge! Nairn is... More

Arrived at the Cawdor House at dinner time. Our host suggested the Classroom Restaurant a short walk away. After a great meal and equally great nights sleep we were served a great traditional Scottish breakfast. A great experience!!

My family and I stayed at Cawdor house for 11 nights due to a crisis at home. Our hosts made us feel very welcome, especially Paul who went out of his way to accommodate our every need. The rooms were extremely comfortable and the breakfasts were the perfect start to the day. Can't thank Paul and his team enough for... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and enjoyed everything about this guest house. The room was spotless and very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and the host, Paul, was so welcoming and knowledgeable about the area. He was very accommodating and showed amazing patience and respect towards another guest who was being very demanding and difficult! Well done Paul.

I stayed here with my husband and 1 year old. We stayed in the family room down the stairs which was beautiful. Because it was on the ground floor it was easy to access with the buggy when my daughter fell asleep. The room its self had a bath in the ensuite which again was great with a young child.... More

We stayed here for 3 nights during a recent visit to the Moray Coast. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel most welcome. We had a lovely and spacious room. The bed was one of the most comfortable lodging beds I have ever slept in. Combine this with a great location, superb breakfast and obliging and friendly... More

Stayed here after the Ryder Cup as a base for a quick look at the Highlands. We received a warm welcome. The room was nice with a good shower. We were recommended a restaurant and our host managed to get us a table. The Old School House is a fantastic lively restaurant with great food. Breakfast was good quality and... More

The Cawdor House was our favorite stay in Scotland. It's quiet residential location, spacious and beautifully decorated B&B, & the overly generous breakfast made this a wonderful stop. The Scottish Highlands are spectacular, and this stop in this quaint town was a definite plus. The owner also helped us with recommendations about the area that were fabulous, and was very... More

I stayed for two nights during mid-week with both my grown daughters & my mother & had a fantastic stay. The food was gorgeous & the owners were very accommodating considering one of my daughters is wheat free/gluten free & the other is dairy free. They went beyond & bought foods that were safe for them. That goes a long... More
