Absolutely Brilliant, Ray and Linda couldnt do enough for me, a lovely couple. Made me a packed lunch as I was leaving earlier than the breakfast time. The room was nice and clean and cosy. Food was amazing, Top restaurant quality! I would definitely stay here again!

Stayed here for 2 nights Excellent chef Ray, reasonable prices, served well and no hurry. Lovely couple to chat to, particularly Linda. Very helpful in guiding us in what to do and see. Tired bedroom & decor, but comfortable and homely. Although there was free Wi fi you had to stand outside their house to receive it !!

We were doing the North Coast 500 and we spent our first night here. Clean and tidy rooms. Best of all is the food that Ray prepared. I haven't had food like that anywhere else before. It was simply amazing.

The location couldn't be any better. It is literally 1 minute from Garve Station which was such a relief on my arrival. Ray and Linda are the perfect hosts. Ray is probably the best cook you would ever find at such an establishment. The effort that goes into each dish has to be seen to be believed and you savour... More

Lovely bed and breakfast but with the option to also have dinner. You must sample Rays evening meals! As an experienced chef he certainly knows how to prepare the most delicious meals served by the lovely Linda. We were pleased to be able to take our dogs to this establishment too. Our room was across a courtyard and although small... More

We stayed one night to break our long journey back from the outer Hebrides. We had over looked planning where to eat that night and it was late when we arrived. Linda did not hesitate in offering to feed my young family and made us most welcome in our two ensuite rooms. My husband and our two dogs had a... More

It was only a one night stay, so being right next to the main road wasn't a problem. The room was clean, comfortable and warm and I particularly liked the entrance with space for boots/shoes etc and for once a decent space for the tea and coffee making facilities. Breakfast was lovely and very nicely presented. Would like to visit... More
