This was our last night travelling the North Coast 500 and having stayed here some 22 years previously and remembering how delightful and charming both the Dower House and our hosts were I was interested to find out how things were all these years later. The Dower House and Robyn and Mena Aitchison continue to be everything you could wish... More

My partner booked this place. Don't trust your satnav to get you to the door. Head for Muir of Ord and call for directions. Not sure of what to expect - we were totally bowled over. We stayed in the suite - wonderful furnishings with a tasteful eye for detail and THE most comfortable bed we've slept in away from... More

Its location confused our Sat Nav but a call to our hostess soon put us right The house is set in tranquil gardens and the bedrooms and public rooms are a cornucopia of antiques not least of our 120 year old bath - possibly the largest in Scotland!! Cosy and welcoming it was a perfect end to our busy trip... More

I was lucky enough to stay the suite at the Dower House Hotel this summer. The property itself is a short drive – not even 20 miles? – from Inverness which although a city, is akin to small High Street and not particularly interesting and certainly not worth staying in unless you are particularly fond of large hotel chains. (Driving... More

Beautiful, warm and very welcoming. A stunning garden and wonderful hosts. And the breakfast was the best in Scotland! Just how you imagine a B&B to be. Would recommend it 100 percent! Enjoy nature, good food and peace.

We spent one night at the Dower House and enjoyed every minute. The owners, Mena and Robyn, made it a great stay. With only 4 bedrooms, this is a small , charming hotel with lovely gardens. We had a great breakfast in a wonderfully furnished dining room. It's quiet and the rooms are well appointed.

Set at the end of a drive off the "main" road through Muir of Ord, the Dower House is very much a chocolate box location. The bedroom was very generously sized and very comfortable and being deep in the countryside really quiet and relaxing. There is no menu for the evening meal, but the standard of ingredients and cooking meant... More

It's something of a surprise to stumble upon the Dower House in Scotland as it looks like a an English country cottage. Set in its own beautiful, well maintained gardens, it is a beautiful, fairly large house with four bedrooms all with their own unique decor. If you are an art lover then you will enjoy some the mix of... More

This is a special place and quite unique. Only four bedrooms but all comfortable and very well furnished. (I have stayed several times and tried three of them.) Everything is done properly and the proprietors do everything they can to please - you only have to ask. The set dinners are very good and contrary to some reviewers views, fair... More
