Had a lovely time again with Highland Heritage. Really well looked after by the staff. Was on the Castles and Gardens 6 Day Tour. Our excellent courier Darren kept us on the straight and narrow. The tours were excellent with full day excursions, went to feed Hamish twice at Kilmahog. Loved the visit to Glamis Castle, Edinburgh, Oban and Mount... More

The one thing that truly matched the glossy brochure depiction was the hotel's setting. I've only experienced better views in the Alps, & the grounds themselves, leading out to the start of the Highland Way a bonus,giving great views from most rooms (I'm told).. That from ours was certainly so! The room itself was spacious enough & well equipped &... More

The rooms were very clean but so tired looking, the carpet had stains on and wall paper was so outdated and dull. The dining room was very hot and noisy but was to be... More

The Ben Doran is hard to categorise and review, it may reflect the owner; the mysterious Mr Cleaver, who all the staff allude to. Friendly and efficient staff mainly East European great manager (Frazer),good courier service with knowledgeable drivers, however ...... a very strange experience sort of like a friendly care home. I have some real issues , mainly health... More

Next time we shall travel by ourselves and make our own arrangements along the way. We read the Highland Heritage brochure that came through the door and thought it would make a nice few days...
