Geoff - we're DG11 1JS. Care if using satnav though, as it'll lead you along some pretty wretched wee lanes. Best to follow directions on our website. Cheers M&M, The Hightae Inn.

Description
A great little Restaurant with rooms open for Evening Suppers 5 nights a week (closed Mondays & Tuesdays) serving locally sourced home cooked food to order in our cosy lounge bar. As we only have a limited number of covers and the table is yours for the night, booking really is essential.
