Cosy bar with a large wood stove, tasty 3 course meal and good chat at a communal table in the dining room, then back into the bar for a whisky or two from the large selection, then across the road to the cosy and very comfy cottage/bunkhouse. Skipped breakfast to allow me to get up Ben Klibreck in sunshine, but... More

Stayed here the last night after a week toring the area on bicycles. Be warned, if you are looking for a trendy place with all mod cons then look elsewhere. If however you want a comfortable nioghts sleep, pleasant company, relaxing surroundings and good food then this place fits the bill. Mike & Kai are great hosts and seem to... More

Saw this place on an OS map and did some investigating. The very good reviews on this place do not do it justice. Stayed here with my son for three nights whilst doing motorbike tour of the highlands. Its central location made it great for doing circular routes. We were going to stay 1 night and move on, but ended... More

This was the best place I stayed in during my entire end to end cycle. After a long cycle against head on winds, I was delighted to finally arrive at the inn and be greeted with a friendly welcome, hot tea and homemade muffin. Warmed up by the pub fire. The rooms are basic but clean. There is very kitty... More

As I was near to the completion of the Lands End to John O'Groats ride I needed a warm and comfortable environment to stop the night. Mike and Kai were great hosts and the accommodation was fitting to the surroundings. If you love sitting in front of a log fire and having a nice drink then turning into a comfortable... More

If you appreciate traditional values of service and hospitality, if your preferred modes of transport are on foot or bicycle and If your alternative accommodation is a camp (preferably a wild camp) then you will love this place. If you find it difficult to agree with all of the above conditions, don't come near this place, in fact, carry on... More

Quite a unique experience, and in a good way! Wonderful hosts who are genuinely 'good' people, and rightfully proud of their unusual and quirky bed and breakfast. We were passing through on a cycling holiday, and it seemed that they were known by everyone in the Highlands. Welcoming to everyone who happened to drop by.

A warm welcome in the middle of no-where! A group of 8 of us had a great stay here whilst cycling up north. The owner is a real character and made us very welcome. The dinner was gorgeous and brilliant value for money. The bar is intimate with a log fire with a wide range of choice. Ok the beds... More

Thank you so much for allowing us to say at the Cask Inn. The rooms were full, but you kindly allowed us to camp out in the garden and prepared us a generous Beetroot Soup which was not only delicious, but accompanied by a gigantic plate of delicious bread, above and beyond what I would have expected at 10PM at...

The only place along a remote road. Hosts very kind and welcoming, Lovely big fire burning. We enjoyed a very good and reasonably priced, home cooked meal. If you are looking for all the mod cons and modern luxury - this is not the place for you. If you want a traditional atmosphere and welcoming hosts with good home cooked... More
