We have stayed and enjoyed dinner at The Albannach five times now and without doubt this is one of our favourite places in Scotland. We always choose to stay in The Byre because we love the privacy of having our own little five star cottage across the drive from the main hotel - it's so beautifully furnished and relaxing that...

Dan and I had booked the byre suite months before our visit on 7th September 2014. Dan surprised me by proposing and Colin and Lesley made our stay there very special - incredible food, rose petals everywhere, amazing views over Lochinver to Suliven (We could sit happily in the conservatory for hours) and a gorgeous room with a hot tub...

My husband and I splurged on this bed/dinner/breakfast as the icing on the cake of our 15th anniversary trip to Scotland. We stayed in the Byre suite which is its own spacious residence with a private hot tub. What a fantastic treat! The yard/garden near the hot tub was lovely as was the indoor sitting room overlooking the garden. The... More

The Albannach - an old Victorian hunting lodge that provides all the luxuries asked for in the modern day. I stayed in one of the standard rooms, which was absolutely stunning, with a massive four-poster bed draped in tartan and a spacious (and absolutely gorgeous ensuite), this made for the perfect nights sleep after such a hearty meal. Although dinner... More

We are just back from a two day break at the Albannach. We were last there eleven years ago and naturally nervous that it wouldn't live up to the perfect visit first time around. We should have had more faith. The Albannach is not cheap but good things seldom are. Our revisit was to celebrate my wife's *0th birthday earlier... More

We only stayed here for one night but it was fabulous. We stayed in the Loft Suite and it is a brilliant suite with its own private deck and very spacious bathroom with an airbath and the windows are to your open deck. The food was deilicious and pentiful, we couldn't finish all the different courses. The dining/breakfast room is... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights in July on our 'Babymoon'. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome, relaxed and the complimentary afternoon tea gave us a taste of the exceptional foodie delights to come. Lesley and Colin have obviously worked extremely hard to cultivate a atmosphere of relaxation with attentive but not overbearing... More

We returned to The Albannach one year later and it was in the back of our minds that it may not match our memories. It has actually exceeded them! Our room, the Penthouse, is absolutely beautiful with a suite of rooms decorated tastefully. The Bose radio, excellent Wifi service, gorgeous Scottish Fine Soap products and windows in all directions add... More

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in May. From the minute we drove up to the hotel to unload our cases I knew this was not a place for me. The entrance was in die need of a good wash and brush up. Our suite (which cost us an arm and leg) was not as we expected. No... More
