10/10. A warm highland welcome from the start. Isla and Hugh have aeons of experience in hospitality and run a superb guest house. We were up for a family wedding and nothing was too much trouble, also ferried to the church to save myself from the effects of high heels! Breakfast was a feast.

Wow! I've never been in such an immaculate hotel. We live locally (Inverness) but were visiting family on holiday in the area. Owners were excellent, breakfast choices were superb. Why so cheap? I found the chap very interesting proudly talking about his Maori grandmother and his experience of Scotland. Thank you for a very pleasant stay. Martyn and Deborah

Thanks Isla and team, what an excellent place to stay better than pretty much any hotel I've ever stayed at! Warm welcome, big rooms with loads of extras in and amazing breakfast with superb fresh fruit and the full English (sorry Isla Scottish) breakfast just the best ever. Would recommend and stay again.

Fantastic breakfast with lots of choice and fabulous service including arranging a bouquet of flowers for my wife and recommending a great place to eat (Royal Golf Hotel.) Perfect in... More

Isla and her staff offered us an unqualified excellent experience. Highfield House in Dornach played host to eight Canadian golfers for two days in mid July 2015. The accomodations were first class and her knowledge of the local area made for a wonderful stay . Highly recommend Highfield House in Dornach, Scotland.

I stayed at Highfield House for 3 nights this week. The house and grounds are very well kept and the owners are quite friendly and helpful. My room was as comfortable as I could ask for and TV and Internet worked well. I was up early for golf, but they had breakfast for me before the "official" start time so... More

We stayed at Highfield House for 2 nights and had a very comfortable room with small shower room en suite. The property is a lovely old house which has been very tastefully decorated to a high standard. It is only 5 mins walk into Dornoch. We had a warm welcome and excellent breakfast with good choice and quality.
