This was our second Highland Heritage trip and although the first visit was less than good in some ways we decided to go again. This may sound contradictory but the location of the hotel is very convenient and the views across the bay, if you pay for a sea view, are really good. In addition the lengthy coach trip is... More

The hotel is 20 metres from the bay, beautiful views, hotel is not the modern style more the traditional Scottish decor. The staff were so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The food was all local and fresh. There is entertainment on an evening. Or if like us you can sit in the quiet areas and chill. Heritage hotels... More
