Having eaten here a few years ago, we vowed to return one day, and what a gem The Highland Cottage is.The hospitality and attention to detail is amazing, our luxurious room with a four poster bed had a magnificent view over the bay, and the dinners were memorable with local produce cooked to perfection by Jo, and served with humour...

We stayed for 2 nights in mid June 2014. Our room was small but was perfectly formed, right down to the homemade shortbread bics to go with a drink, loved the honesty bar in the up stairs lounge. The food was excellent, perfectly cooked and served - try the Rusty Nail Pudding, Yum. I recommend this lovely little hotel.

We enjoyed an overnight stay at the Highland Cottage in early June. It is a lovely, homely, little place. Run by the owners, David & Jo. David looks after the guests and his wife Jo, cooks the food. Both do their tasks to the highest level. We booked this hotel based on its 2 AA rosette rating and must say... More

This is fine dining in Tobermory. We both had mussels followed by scallops, all of which were excellent. A very pleasant place to have a special celebration. The service was top class, which added to the experience.

Our group of travellers celebrated a birthday with dinner at Highland Cottage. The food was outstanding. I couldn't fault our meal. The wine list was small but well crafted. The dining room was charming. They also arranged an excellent birthday cake!

Not only did we get to stay overnight at Jo and David's wonderful B&B, we also got to eat Jo's cooking! I had to pinch myself to remember that we were not in a fancy five-star big-city restaurant. Jo cooks with flair, finesse, and creativity, even when she's got to satisfy the demands of a vegetarian diner. Everyone else at... More

Well run small hotel . The Curries have built up their hotel over 17 years and it shows. Personal attention to every detail and the menu can be amended at short notice to suit particular requirements. David is a fount of information regarding outings on the island and much else besides. Jo's cooking is accomplished in every aspect.

Elegance on a small scale. Run by David and Jo with an obvious wealth of experience and attention to detail. David is the consummate host. Interested and interesting. Jo's cooking skills are only equalled by her charm, which she has in abundance. And abundance was what we experienced. Even if you don't stay on the charming rooms with home style... More

Highland Cottage, Joe and Dave were brilliant. My wife and I enjoyed 3 nights at the cottage. The room was fine, with a comfortable bed and a good bathroom. Breakfast was just what we needed, very nice indeed and a great start to the day. We had dinner there once, and it was absolutely amazing! We enjoyed every crumb. One... More
