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

Booked an overnight on basis of reviews on Tripadvisor. Very disappointed and confused by the amazing reviews! On the good side, the bar was old, flagged and with a peat burning fire and quite acceptable. The accommodation was deeply disappointing. The door had a broken lock, the shower was badly stained and provided a dribble of water, despite being told... More

I went up to Scotland for the eclipse and to climb some Munro's and stayed for 3 nights in the Crask Inn. A warm and friendly place and the hosts were excellent. I loved all the hearty food they provided especially the salty porridge and the soups. I saw 2 Golden Eagles too which was just brilliant. I thoroughly recommend... More

Having heard about the Crask Inn for years, I was not disappointed when we stayed there on Saturday, Mike and Kai are so warm and friendly and we had a delicious meal. Perfect place to stop before cycling to Betty Hill.

I walked in a was warmly met by a lady owner - I enquired about breakfast and could tell immediately they had had finished serving. Without hesitation Kai called her husband Mike and it was decided i should be fed. They welcomed me... More
