Didnt stay over here, just stopped by for Sunday lunch. Nicely cooked meal which didn't overface. Enough room for a dessert. Toilets were located within the bar area dining, which is separate from the restaurant (formal dining)

We stayed in a cottage last week just around the corner at skinnet. We went in twice for drinks and thoroughly enjoyed it although we didnt have time to have a meal there. The waitress there we got chatting to and she was lovely having just been there a few weeks and hoping to buy a cottage there she was... More

Do not drive past The Craggan Hotel, pop in for a meal, drinks or an overnight stay, you will not be disappointed! I could not fault The Craggan Hotel at all, the hotel has four immaculate bedrooms, some with beautiful sea views. Although all 4 rooms share a bathroom, it has a lock on the door and is absolutely pristine!... More

The very kind and helpful staff of the Ben Loyal hotel helped me find a room at the Craggan Hotel when there was literally not another room to be found in the whole of Scotland. 31 pages of Booking.com sold out!! Interestingly Kate has decided not to go on Booking.com this year as she only has four rooms and can... More

We were attracted by the professional signs posted along the main road. The exterior didn't look like a hotel (it was proprietor Kate McKay's family home) but the rooms, though basic, were bright and comfortably cosy. No ensuites but the shared bathroom was huge and clean. Free parking. There is a magical little beach accessible via a short walk through... More

Today called into Melness as we were taking our German family member around the north coast, dropped into the Craggan and decided to have the Cullen Skink, something Sandra had never had "Delicious" she says and I fully agreed,,

My husband, our friend and I were on a road trip on the north coast 500. We were travelling from east to west so on our way down to Aultbea we stopped for lunch at this really nice hotel for lunch. Delicious food especially good since it serves food all day and we were there much later than lunch time!... More

Stop here for lunch with the Moray Coast Motorcycle Club for a pre booked Sunday Carvery. Lovely little place, very warm and friendly welcome. Food was excellent, not a morsel left on any of the 20 plates. Desserts went down a treat. Not the cheapest place we've been, but worth the little extra for the service and quality we received....

Serving food at 2.30 in the afternoon when everywhere else had closed. We probably wouldn't have food this place if the Tongue hotel had been open and serving but thankfully it was neither open nor serving food. Friendly welcome, lovely Sunday beef from the carvery and a good selection of wines on the menu. All in all a great pub/hotel... More
