What else is there to say. Warm and immaculate. Friendly hosts. Outstanding breakfast setting and menu. All of this sets the Highfield House apart from every place I stayed in Scotland. It was simply, the best.

I find a lot of guest houses/ BnB type places don't cater for/ welcome or even accept children. But my 2 were made to feel very welcome here. My 4 year old loved the fluffy robe in the room and my 7 year old loved the shortbread biscuits. They both loved the beautiful garden, sunroom and cooked breakfast! We had... More

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.

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.
