My wife and I booked room number three and dinner after reading the good reviews in tripadvisor. We had high expectations. The room was spacious, well heated and spotlessly clean (good cleaning of the rooms is something I have grown to appreciate in my travels). There is Wi-Fi and Mark on-hand if you need help connecting. Our dinner was preceded by an introduction to the area by Mark and a good description of the various entrees and starters etc on offer on the menu. I chose Cream of Asparagus Soup - which was deeply creamy and tasted of Asparagus. However there were little accents of other flavours which I enjoyed and it's also the first time I thought the addition of chopped parsley was enhancing rather than just bad habit. My main course was Chicken Pie with lemony carrots accompanied with cabbage. The Hen was juicy in a well made béchamel and leek sauce. (very trad). The whole topped with puff pastry. New spuds completed the dish. I enjoyed my dinner and so did my wife (who also will / has reviewed the Hightae Inn separately) My sleep that night was perfect with no noise from the other residents or noise of any kind from outside. Breakfast ( all the usual stuff you would expect) was served promptly with good (cona filter) coffee. The area round Hightae is lovely with gently rolling hills and patchwork fields. I counted around hundred swallows on the phone line. The Hightae Inn is almost perfect in every respect bar one .. its too far from my own home to visit more regularly. Superb work Morag (owner chef) and Mark (Owner, Barman and everything else except chef) - may you continue to have your well deserved rep on TripAdvisor. Thank you both.
