We had a great stay at this hotel - Room was very good and the bed was extremely comfortable and the "feel" of this hotel is more like staying with friends. The highlight for me was our evening meal - it was fantastic ! The Risotto was superb and the halibut was cooked to perfection and served just right. I... More

We spent a two-night break here recently and I have nothing but praise for the efforts of Jo and David Currie to provide a top class accommodation and beverage offering. Our room was the Staffa room and was beautifully appointed with a very comfortable four-poster bed, plenty of storage, a nice view and a very clean and well appointed en-suite.... More

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.

This really is a little gem of a place. Set back above the main street it is a short walk down to the harbour. The hosts David and Jo are delightful people who take a real pride in their establishment. The rooms are cosy and comfortable with a four poster bed in ours There is an excellent upstairs lounge for... More

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.
