The Anderson is an eclectic little hotel in Fortrose on the Black Isle. In many ways it is like an old fashioned "isles hotel" with its rather plain rooms and old worldly decor, but this in fact only makes it a nicer place to stay! It is not an "anywhere standard hotel" by any standards. Jim makes a perfect host... More

My husband and I stayed at the Anderson the night before our wedding. I had arranged a surprise for my husband - his brother and sister-in-law from the states - and Jim was extremely helpful and accommodating in keeping the surprise! When we arrived, we were happy to find a car park. Yes, it is small, but this is Scotland... More

We did not stay at the hotel but did enjoy a lovely meal here. The menu is an interesting cross of USA meets Scotland meets Mediterranean. I had chilli whitebait and venison chilli - neither really what I expected but both delicious and plentiful - possibly too plentiful as I had no room left for dessert! My husband particularly enjoyed... More

Our stay in THE ANDERSON ended with mixed feelings: Unlike 4 years ago we had a rather small and oldfashioned bedroom with a very small ensuite bathroom. A friendly staff awaits you and the renowned Pub offers a wide range of malt whiskies. Dinner in the evening was delicious.

Stayed here a couple of times this year; a place full of character! Tasty and varied menus, the majority of the food is local, freshly prepared and of superb quality - the house wine delicious and also a good cup of coffee too. The staff were very helpful and friendly; and as others have said, the whisky selection in the... More

Due to a mix up in our reservation, we began our evening in "the back room" - basically a pub for the locals which included a circle of knitters! Moving into the dining room, my husband and I enjoyed a delicious meal - mushroom soup, gnochi, fish and chips and a scrumtious dessert. We enjoyed conversation with our host, who... More

We've just got back from our stay at The Anderson and we loved every minute of it. Everyone was incredibly friendly, nothing was too much trouble, our room was very comfortable and the food was fabulous. The bar staff were also great and very knowledgeable; the selection of beers and whiskys is second to none. The hotel is in a... More

Had a lovely meal at The Anderson with excellent food and more than acceptable house wine! On the night it was a slight disappointment the length of time taken to take our order but the waiter did explain when we arrived that the kitchen was very busy. Quality and cooking of food very much 5/5!

Just back from a golfing break with 13 friends. The service at this hotel was brilliant. Jim and Anne made sure we were well fed and looked after and Richard in the bar did a sterling job with the draft and bottled beers selections. Definitely highly recommended.
