What a find!! This little place truly is a hidden gem, the staff are friendly, the views are stunning and the food is amazing! We recently spent a weeks holiday on the Black Isle and stumbling across The Crofters one lunchtime, and after a lovely lunch decided to book a table for the evening meal. The food is all fresh...

Beautiful views across the firth and a good menu with freshly cooked food.A little on the pricey side and the linguini seafood was a bit heavy on the chilli but will definitely go back.

Have visited many times over the last seven years since we began holidaying in rosemarkie. Food, service and value outstanding. Staff very helpful and attentive - especially the chef- who managed to produce fantastic ,imaginative and healthy home made food in each visit - in particular for my 18 month old grandson.

We went here for lunch as the food had good reviews and we arrived at 13.50 (it closed at 15.00). There was one table of 2 leaving and a table of 2 adults and 2 children occupied but at the end of their drinks. We asked the gentleman clearing the table if we could have lunch, he hesitated and looked... More

My wife and I have been here a couple of times now, once in the summer when the place was packed both inside and out, and once this winter in December on a Friday when it was also very busy, fortunately we had booked for both occasions. Our most recent trip we sampled their fresh stone baked pizza night, the... More

Love this restaurant as it always has a brilliant welcome and the food is yum every time we visit. Fab fresh ingredients, great cooking, staff all ever so helpful and a view to die for (weather depending). You may need to book as it is so popular.

Arrived on a blustery cold Saturday in December. Host was very welcoming and answered our questions about the local area and was very helpful. We had a window table with lovely sea views. We both enjoyed the turkey burger which was lovely freshly made and very tasty.
