Our first visit to Wemyss house. We had a first class stay. Warm welcome with tea and homemade cakes, large bedrooms with ample facilities. Breakfast for me would ensure I visit again and again, striking views and brilliant company definitely a first class B&B. Highly recommended

We had a wonderful visit. After an overnight flight that had us arriving in Inverness after 4 pm. By the time we collected our car and made our way to Wemyss House, it was 7 pm and we were famished. What did we find upon our arrival, a wonderful hot cup of tea and cakes. We had to be up... More

Having travelled extensively in the USA ourselves, we know just how tiring it is after the long haul journey to the UK so the tea and home baked cakes were the least we could do to offer you a Highland Welcome and make you feel 'at home'. We wished we could have had more time to chat and hope you... More

This has been mentioned before but it is difficult to understand why anyone would opt for a top-class hotel when the same or better service is offered at Wemyss House by Stuart and Chris. They offer first class service whether it's stepping over the threshold to a cup of tea while viewing the magnificent scenery, or Chris preparing and Stuart... More
