My husband and I stayed at the "Tig" for three nights. Our room was clean and well appointed but the bathroom could do with a vanity unit to place toiletries etc in/on. The food is excellent, especially the full Scottish breakfast which is amazing! Accommodation and food are both exceptional value. Ian, the hotel's owner could not have been friendlier.... More

This was my 6th visit to the tig, and as always, it's perfect for a peaceful getaway. Neil and his staff are fantastic. My room was clean with the towels replaced daily. An absolute pleasure to stay again in this gorgeous part of the world.

Lovely staff. Friendly and polite. Very nice surroundings but a little background music might help the atmosphere. Excellent menu with a good range of different foods and all reasonably priced. We ate at 5.30pm and both dining areas were quiet and food arrived quickly. Only issue was an over heated plate. Not sure if it came out of a blast... More
