Amazing place to stay, and very nice owners. I was just passing this place on my bike, and stopped to ask for some water, and I was amazed by the beauty of this place. Owners are really nice people as well. A place worth visiting.

The most gracious hosts, the most beautiful old church with very lovely energy you can feel the minute you walk in. We were so very comfortable there, truly one of our best stays in our 2 week travels in Scotland! If you are going anywhere near Findhorn, this B&B, is worth the couple extra miles from Findhorn. Herbie and Hillary,... More

If you think that sleeping in an old church is somewhat eerie you are thoroughly mistaken (as we were). The Old Kirk is welcoming, luxurious, calm and cozy. And it has good vibrations. And Hilary and Herbie are just loveable!

The hosts were very accommodating. They provided Gluten Free cereal and bread. The room was lovely. The bed, over 200 years old, so pretty, was very comfortable. Breakfast was yummy. Their garden full of flowers and birds.

TripAdvisor has it's uses...... I booked The Old Kirk on the basis of a search, leading to the reviews and after inspection of the B&B's website. I am so glad I did. My wife and I stayed 2 nights, I wish we could have stayed longer. B&B's don't come much more interesting than this, in terms of the building used;... More

Read the reviews thought we would see it for ourselves on our family weekend away, the Old Kirk did not disappoint. Not only does it offer spacious luxurious bedrooms it also has the added bonus of a snug little library and beautiful living room with log fire lit in the evening, not to mention a superb service from hosts Hilary...

We have stayed at Old Kirk three times over the last four years and found it a fantastic experience. The renovated church is inspiring with rooms well appointed with excellent furnishings with views from the two rooms we have stayed in. There are wonderful lounge rooms to relax in altho the opportunity to visit many venues nearby at Inverness ,... More

This was a return visit for us and as usual, I have not been able to find a B & B that even comes close...and I have stayed at numerous B & B's all over Britain! Hilary and Herbie are such a genuinely warm and welcoming couple who bend over backwards to help their guests and promote the area. Come... More

This place is amazing! We had the room with the four poster bed - wow, what a room! The property is beautifully decorated throughout - and we know, because the owners kindly showed us all the bedrooms. Herbie & Hilary are wonderful hosts - always time for a chat and very helpful - nothing was too much trouble. We arrived... More

Hilary and Herbie have left no stane unturned to make your stay in the Forres area a most pleasant one. It was a truly lucky find for a fine mid-February weekend visit - centrally located between Aberdeen and Inverness, the Cairngorms, the Whisky Trail, Findhorn, and as many Scottish villages as you care to visit. We were treated to hearty... More
