Magical spot in a beautiful island. Our hosts were wonderfully welcoming, our room was beautiful with the best ever view, I wanted to bring the bed home it was so comfortable and the food was to die for. I am determined to return for a second helping of true hospitality. Thanks guys

Tighard Guest House is a short walk from the ferry, firstly along the flat road then up a winding path by the community shop that leads you up to the front garden. David was kind enough to pick me up so I didn't have to carry my bags, which was great because I had the dog's travel bag too. My... More

Well presented house packed with beautiful features, an eclectic collection of furniture and lots of interesting objets, many of them very personal to the owners. Lovely and peaceful with stunning views over the islands. Every whim catered for from honesty bar stocked with interesting gins and whiskies to home made afternoon tea delights. Breakfast... More

I had high expectations of my trip to Canna. Not only the island is breathtaking. Tighard House is perfect. The furnishing and interior design was done thoroughly and with love for house and future guests. The kindness and hospitality of Colin and David leaves absolutely nothing to be desired! Real attention is in the details, these guys understand that! Some... More

We have just returned from a three night stay at Tighard House and can confirm that it fully deserves all the rave reviews provided since Colin and David took over. The location is gorgeous with wonderful views over Sanday to Rum. The house is a lovely Victorian building, modernised with love and attention to every detail. It is an uphill... More

Very comfortable and of a high quality in all respects. Colin and David were excellent hosts with an eye to the details that matter, a wealth of local and community information and the knack of making you feel relaxed in their house. We are currently thinking about how and when to return.

Like previous reviewers, I found all the hugely positive comments to be an understatement - Tighard has got to be one of the top guest houses on the planet. Colin and David really know how to deliver a five star experience, all the way from the welcome as you disembark from the boat until the minute you leave the island.... More
