We couldn't believe we found the place. We were spending our time going along Cabot Trail when I saw a sign on the road advertising this place. I told my husband, hey I read about that place on tripadvisor, let's go check it out. Boy am I glad we did! Thank goodness they had an opening for a night and... More

We found this place on a whim without a reservation. The price was great and the view of the ocean was spectacular. Unfortunately for us we ate supper before we arrived and missed out on what looked like a great menu. Other guests that were there we're raving bout how good the home cooked food was (we were jealous). Breakfast... More

On a 2 day tour of Cabot Trail by motorbike, and had made no arrangements for accommodation, when I came upon the Markland simply by wandering to the end of the road thru Dingwall - what a pleasant surprise. the sun was shining off the Gulf of St Lawrence, and the welcome in the office was warm. I stayed the... More

This is a remote location. It is at the end of the road on the edge of the continent. The rooms are "cabin-style," yet comfortable and quiet. Our room overlooked the Atlantic from a high bluff. The wifi is robust. We had dinner in the main lodge - this is a good idea owing to the remote location. Not many... More

Thanks to Kim and her team for making our one night stay in Dingwall so pleasant and enjoyable. We booked one of the wooden log rooms for our short stay. The interior was lovely with lots of space and nice to have a sofa in the room and king size bed. We looked right out across the coast from our... More

This is definitely your get-away-from-it-all spot! This is the end of the road and that was wonderful. I stayed here 2 nights while touring Cape Breton. I stayed in a log room (#23 I think) with a king sized bed. The view was directly over the Atlantic from the porch. You can hear the surf roll in from the room.... More

Beautiful views, very quiet and peaceful. Small but with everything we needed. Very helpful staff. Although it was only early in the season, we enjoyed a wonderful night's stay and would have chosen to stay longer if we had the time.

I stayed at the Markland for one night, and really enjoyed it. The staff were wonderful, our supper at the restaurant was absolutely wonderful, and the bed was comfortable. Best of all, the views from our room were out of this world.

We stayed at the Markland during Celtic Colours. We had reserved a log room which was available when we arrived -- a plus always! We went to the room and it was ok -- especially since there's a choice of one hotel in Dingwall. When I ran the water to brush my teeth, I found there wasn't much water pressure.... More

The Markland Coastal Beach Cottages are right at the end of the road through Dingwall and what a location; the views are stunning. We stayed in a lovely comfortable cabin with views down the grassed slope towards a small copse of trees and a quiet sand and shingle beach. The onsite restaurant does very good breakfasts and evening meals. I... More
