Great place, people and location. Rooms are nice and comfortable, every morning you are greeted with a different salutation from Nel. Both warm and friendly owners who see to your every need, including some great advice on what is in the area.

We have stayed with Nel & Ed four times now and have enjoyed every visit tremendously. They are brilliant hosts, friendly, warm and take such pride in how they look after you. We didn't manage to get there last year and regretted not travelling that far up on our biking trip. This year we really looked forward to the return... More

Many thanks to hosts Ed & Nel for creating such a delightful oasis. I stayed for only one night, but definitely would stay longer the next chance I have. The house was lovely, full of charm and character, and even my modest room (I was in the "Double" overlooking the farmland toward the old church) felt spacious and luxurious because... More

We had wanted a base from which to explore the area in and around Inverness. Kiltearn house was an exceptional find. The house was close to the A9, taking only a 10 minute drive, but it felt like we were tucked in far more the bustle of the city. It is only 20 minutes or so to Inverness, and had... More

There is nothing to add to PERFECT is there ? Beautiful house. Spotlessly clean. Great location, great food. Perfect local produce used for meals, perfectly cooked. Great proprietors. Wonderful hospitality. If all this sounds too good to be true I will criticise one thing. The power shower in my bathroom could have had a bit more zooomph to it !... More

We used Kiltearn House as a stopover for a short business trip to this Highlands area. We really loved the house and would like to live there ourselves! The location is beautiful and peaceful with views across the water and surrounding countryside, ensuring a very peaceful night's sleep. The bed and pillows are good quality and very comfortable, rooms are... More

Lovely home, beautifully and tastefully furnished, great location on the firth, and wonderful hosts. Simply the most comfortable and relaxing place to enjoy the views of the Black Isle across the firth. The meals are superb, rooms spotless, and the hosts are helpful and informative to all their visitors. After two days I can say without question that I shall... More

A lovely and charming old house, warm welcome and beautiful surroundings. Sadly we could only spend one night here because of our schedule, otherwise we would have stayed for some more. Clean rooms with good beds, a lounge downstairs, delicious food and great hospitality. There is just no flaw we can mention. Thanks for having us, we had the best... More
