A truly wonderful find. A haven of cleanliness, comfort and attention to detail in the middle of nowhere and to add to this a meal to match any 5* restaurant. Mark and Morag are lovely hosts. We are only sorry we live 5.5 hours away or we would visit often! We will definitely be back.

This is a five star hotel masquerading as a bed and breakfast establishment. Near enough to the A74 to be a great stopover location between England and the Highlands. And far enough away to allow you to retreat into the village world that is Hightae. Third time of staying here. Wouldn't stay anywhere else now. Great rooms, great food and... More

We had a very warm welcome on a very wet day, which was a particular relief as we had nearly got stuck in the mud after following the sat nav and taking a high road to Hightae. The owner Mark had sent a welcoming email with instructions about not to take that road and giving correct directions (on the low... More

There are a few narrow roads around Hightae which Sat Navs unfortunately utilize on the 'shortest route' instruction button - but hey, you made it and lived to tell the tale. Huge thanks for finding us - it was great having you here to stay. Best of luck with the new kitten additions to your family. Warmest regards. M&M, The... More

This hotel is a very tough act to follow. There is not anything I could or would or should criticize with respect to accommodation, location, service, repast or interaction. It is just too bad that this type of genuine service and authentic accommodation cannot be easily duplicated, but alas that is what makes a "find" like The Hightae Inn such... More

Terrific accommodations with big soft bed, terrific help and conversation with Mark, the owner, dinner and breakfasts were superb! We stayed 2 nights with sister and bro-in-law while we toured the Borders - definitely worth staying again!

How can I have forgotten to write a review on this fantastic Inn. We have stayed here 4 or 5 times to break the journey on our annual trip up to Scotland. Rooms are very clean and the beds super comfortable. Love the tunnock teacakes to enjoy with our cuppa in the room. Mark and Morag are wonderful hosts. We... More

Stayed here on way to Scotland. Was made very welcome as this was my first trip away on my own. Room very comfortable. Had booked a table for dinner which was excellent. Was so impressed I booked to stay on the way home as well

We stayed in this very comfortable Inn on our way up to the Highlands. The room was small and very clean with a lovely comfortable superking sized bed. Great welcome and lovely evening meal.Mark was very helpful. We would certainly stay again and recommend as a good place to stay on your way to or from the Highlands.

Reserved the Hightae Inn as a place to stay on the way back from the western isles. Had read some of the reviews on Trip Advisor prior to booking, all of which were very complimentary.
