Craigvar has topped our favourite accommodation list and was a wonderful way to experience a Highlands village! The BnB is in the centre of the town and overlooks a lovely strip of shops. From our arrival we were greeted with friendliness, service and made to feel at home. The property itself is beautiful, a 19th century Edwardian house that is... More

Craigvar was one of our favorite accommodations during a two week drive through Scotland. Arthur was a pleasant host; his breakfasts were outstanding. The rooms were beautiful, comfortable and well appointed, extra clean and fresh, all with a discerning eye for detail. Emily was the epitome of hospitality and helpfulness that one might expect in a quality B&B such as... More

We stayed this weekend for one night whilst attending a wedding at the Pavilion next door. Arthur the owner was fantastic and should be very proud of his hotel. Much of what he offers would be found in 5 star hotels. The Blue Room had amazing bed, huge bathroom, great view and complimentary sherry! The breakfast was delicious and the... More

We stayed here on two occasions to break up the journey to and from Stornoway. From the moment we arrived until the time we left our host Arthur was very welcoming and attentive, and very knowledgeable about the area. We stayed in a different room on each occasion and both were luxurious and comfortable with huge en-suite bathrooms. The public... More

I'm not generous with five points, but this place deserves them. We stayed at four different B&B in the highlands and this one is the best, hands down. Very luxurious, clean stylish. Friendly host and very good breakfast.

We've just returned from a fabulous two night stay at Craigvar. From the very moment we arrived, Arthur made us feel so welcome, greeting us with freshly brewed coffee and delicious shortbread. Our accommodation (the Blue Room) was terrific; very spacious with a huge well-appointed bathroom. The furnishings throughout the property were comfortable and tasteful, with excellent wi-fi coverage too.... More

Outstanding stay. Cannot fault it. Beautiful double room, every need catered for. Extremely comfortable, Beautiful huge en-suite. Bath robes provided, all done to a very high standard. Attention to detail was incredible. The best breakfast we had on our week of touring Scotland. Wish there was a score higher than excellent because it deserves it.
