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

Olde worlde rustic Inn charm with Michelin fine food. Some, like your reviewer, will prefer the modern comforts of Inver lodge on the other side of Loch Inver ( see my review) but it's horses for courses. Dinner is a candlelit affair in two small dining rooms with a somewhat rigid set menu and seating / service times. If you... More

We like good food and know what to expect in a one star Michelin restaurant! A nice ambiance combined with amazing food and excellent service should result in a nice, round dining experience. Food must be of course tasty but also surprising in flavor and texture presented in an artful way. The Albannach however is cooking average food far away... More

We have recently returned from a touring holiday in North West Scotland and treated ourselves to Three nights in the Byre Suite. From the moment we arrived the staff could not do enough for us, from providing afternoon tea on arrival to drying and returning our sodden walking gear after a wet walk in the hills. The Byre suite the... More
