“Just Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Elspeth was the most caring host you could want. Our room was excellent The bed first class and her husband even went the extra mile for us. If you want a first class breakfast this is the place for you. I can't say enough good things about it

Staying here was a great experience and one we'll recommend to friends.
The room was in a private section of the house so no 'staying in someone's spare room' feel.
We had to leave for an early train and on explaining we'd have to miss breakfast were told that 'That's not a problem' and were served a leisurely very early ( and very good) breakfast, taken to the station and given cake to eat on the train journey......WOW!

I had a lovely stay at the Clachan, a lovely house, excellent food and very friendly. Elspeth also helped me with my work by suggesting people and organisations to visit. I would thoroughly recommend it.

Stayed three nights here whilst visiting relatives. Stayed in a double room on single occupancy rate. The room was beautifully furnished with wall mounted TV and luxurious en suite. The breakfasts were superb with a wide choice including local delicacies available. Room and front door keys were provided so you were free to come and go as you please.
Elspeth the owner was very friendly with helpful advice about local amenities etc.
This is far better than any of the hotels I have used in Wick!
I will definitely be using The Clachan in future.

Room Tip: I stayed in the front ground floor bedroom which was extremely comfortable with no noise from the ro...

I stayed here with friends for a wedding in Wick. Could not fault the place at all. Immaculate decor, bright and clean accommodation. Our room was lovely. Bathroom spotless with large walk in shower. Breakfast was not at a set time but by mutual arrangement. Food was well presented, varied and well cooked. The owner Elspeth went out her way to make our stay a great time and even took us in her own car to the wedding!!
Would not hesitate to recommend the Clachan. It's better than home from home.

Room Tip: We stayed in the twin room at the back of the house. Spacious and quiet.
