“Excellent Bed And Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2014

We stayed at Craik Na Dav for a single night at the beginning of August - and loved it. This was my wife's first trip into the Scottish Highlands and I had told her to expect some good old Scottish hospitality. Our hosts, Lindsey and Manda, did not disappoint.

They welcomed us into their home with hot tea and fruit cake, introduced us to their three wonderful dogs and chatted to us for hours as we enjoyed the many birds and animals that visit the surrounding gardens. The small decanter of whisky in our bedroom was a nice touch and the hearty breakfast, the next morning, was the perfect start to our day.

Invermoriston is a small village, perfectly located for exploring the Highlands and Loch Ness. There is a hotel with a bar and restaurant within walking distance of the B&B. Lindsey recommended this for dinner - and a good recommendation it was too. Don't miss out on the chance to see some highland cattle (hairy coos) in the local field.

I would not hesitate to go back to Craik Na Dav and I would highly recommend it.

It's our second visit to Craik Na Dav. Lindsey and Manda welcomed us like old friends. They sit you down and chat while lavishing cups of tea, home made fruit cake and shortbread. The rooms are so bright and comfortable with the added bonus of a wee dram in their own glasses and decanter. We have visited many B & Bs but very few come close to this little gem. Manda and Lindsey make you feel like they have invited you into their home. They greet every guest with smiles and chat. The banter is always great fun and makes the stay even mor special. The garden is full of birds which they feed daily. Also looking through the window and watching the gorgeous red squirrel (which should be called Cyril, not Red) is a joy. Manda's photography is exceptional. If you want good food, 5 minutes walk away is The Glenmoriston Arms, Really good food, service and a damn good choice of single malts. We can't wait until the next visit to Craik Na Dav. Thanks so much to "The Girls"

Hello Russ and Mandy,

Thanks for the review, again. Always nice to meet up with people again and have a laugh. Cyril and his pals are still very active in the garden, I've been told that they love aniseed so I will be tempting them out with that as an experiment. Glad to see that you enjoyed the rest of your jaunt (pub crawl) around the highlands.

Take care both,
Happy travels, have fun!!

We enjoyed our stay very much. We have been welcomed very nicely with coffee and cookies. It was very great to talk to Linsey and Manda. They gave us tips where to go and what to see. The room was very clean and cozy with everything we needed. The breakfast was excellent. Our highlight were the red squirrels who were also having breakfast in the garden.

We spent one night here while we were walking the Great Glen Way, and wished we could have spent more time! Lindsey and Manda are exceptionally good hosts; they know a lot about the area and are very interesting to talk to. The house is beautifully furnished, and the bedrooms were very comfortable. Even a "wee dram" was included in the bedroom! The garden is beautiful, as is Invermoriston.

We stayed here for four nights as this was our first trip to Loch Ness, Manda and Lindsey were so friendly and made us so welcome! Helped us to booked a table in a pub at nearby location when we arrived quite late. They also gave us loads of advises to Loch Ness, Fort William, Fort Augustus and Mallaig as well as other places. The breakfast was also lovely, especially the Haggis, first time to tried it and love it and got other two when we get home:)

Thanks again for a lovely stay and would return it again!

I'm sure the haggis didn't last long once you got home.
