We stayed here again in August 2015. I would not stay anywhere else on our regular migrations to the Northwest of Scotland. Every time Mark & Morag give us a great welcome & delicious food. I hardly need to add to the superlatives in other reviews on the Hightae. Surely the Hightae must be in line for a major tripadvisor... More

15 out of 10. 10 stars. There is not one negative thing we can say about this place. It is a must stay and will make your holiday! Rooms are lovely, large, warm, comfortable beds and everything else you could want. The bar is great, beers is great, Mark and his wife are more then great. My other half (affectionately... More

Many thanks for taking the time to post a review of your stay en-route north. We'd love to have you back on your travels - you'll have to make it in time for Evening Supper though - some great produce here in South West Scotland. Cheers, M&M, The Hightae Inn. More

Warmly welcomed by one of the proprietors, Morag. Room spotless. Dinner and breakfast excellent cooked by Morag. The other proprietor,Mark was an excellent host and very knowledgeable about the extensive whisky selection. This stop on our way to the Highlands from South Wales was real bonus for the holiday.

The Hightae Inn is a real find. The rooms are excellent, the food is fantastic and most importantly, the hosts Mark and Morag genuinely care about their guests experience. Nothing is too much trouble and everything is done with a smile (and good humour). Excellent.

We stayed with friends at the Hightae Inn in July. Mark and Morag were fantastic hosts. We had great food, great rooms and some good banter with Mark. Hightae is in a beautiful part of Scotland and we would highly recommend a visit to this little gem of an inn. We'll bring our own Lazy Susan next time! ;)

It was great having you here to stay folks - big thanks for choosing Dumfriesshire for your wee break. Will bear in mind the 'Lazy Susan' idea although may have to rig-up an automatic 5 second anti-clockwise turn timer as delaying the Pudding-Pass only ends in tears. Warmest regards, M&M, The Hightae Inn. More

We stayed overnight here in mid-July on our way from Dorset north to Islay. This is definitely a highly recommended hostelry, with fantastic food. Our evening meal (slow roast shoulder of pork with trimmings) was absolutely excellent - as was the scrummy breakfast. The hosts were so attentive and friendly and we enjoyed the political banter with Mark. Morag is... More

great hosts and food in an atmospheric gastro pub. A welcome update on Scottish Politics for exiled Scots was most welcome. Bedrooms most comfortable. Loved the breakfasts with good conversation. Ian & Anne Vancouver, Canada
