Assynt featured on our bucket list and at long last here we were. The Albannach comes highly recommended and now we know why.If you're looking for a sterile, cloned rooms hotel experience then this is probably not for you but if you appreciate individual excellence, then it most certainly is. We received the warmest of welcomes with the offer of... More

Visited The Albannach for the third time as a dinner guest only. A friendly welcome on arrival and similar, but discreet during the meal. As in previous visits, the set menu was first-class, with the food being delicious and well presented. A window table gave wonderful views across the loch towards Suilven. It was nice to talk to one of... More

This was our third visit back to this wonderful place and it didn't fail to impress. Again we booked the Byre Suite and were glad of the warm welcome when we arrived slightly later than expected. The food was stunning as usual and the highlights for me was the Pear Tart which was just stunning, closely followed by beef that... More

We stayed at six five star hotels during our trip through the western highlands and this was the best. Unprepossessing at first glance, from the moment you walk through the front door you are transported to the very ideal of the scottish country hotel. Staff was warm, helpful and discreetly present for any inquiry. The location looks like "Lord of... More

We stayed three nights, enjoying the amazing food at breakfast and dinner as well as the very interesting local walks. The staff are remarkable, blending warm and personal service with the formal skills that won them a Michelin star. The food is both simple and complex--fascinating local ingredients, put together in a way that made them even better. My favorite... More

We only stayed one night during our trip of the Scottish Highlands, but it was one of the highlights of our trip. Fantastic food - every dish was perfect, with spectacular views of the loch. We stretched our evening out until about 1am ( it was still light!) and no-one seemed to mind. Great service at all times. Our room... More

We spent 5 wonderful nights at this luxurious hotel just outside Lochinver in the Highlands of Scotland. We had been guests the previous year. This year we managed to secure 'The Loft', a beautiful room with stunning views of Suilven and Cannisp. The room had a Queen size bed, a luxury bathroom boasting a large walk-in shower, air bath for... More

The food and the accommodation were both excellent as advertised but the unexpected pleasure was the attentiveness of the staff. At all times they were pleasant and cheerful and nothing was too much trouble. They even anticipated our needs in lots of little ways, for example by refreshing the milk in our room while we were at dinner. This made... More
