My wife and I decided to have a short holiday in the highlands and having read the reviews of Mackays Hotel booked 4 nights. We decided to fly up from Edinburgh to Wick and return on the train to Inverness and beyond. The hotel offers to collect you from the airport which is only 2 miles out of town which we accepted. We were met at the airport by Ellie Lamont one of the owners who brought us back to the hotel and en route had lots of ideas for what we could do when visiting the area. Check in was quick and our room was large with a king size bed and a view of the river below. We also hired a Mercedes 220 diesel turbo car which was only 6 months old at a very reasonable rate direct from the hotel for 3 days. We booked half board both breakfast and dinner were of wonderful quality with great service. The other owner was Murray Lamont who was always helpful and nothing was to much trouble for him and was an expert on whisky. While stopping at Mackays Hotel we visited The Castle of Mey , The Orkney islands on a day trip from John o Groats , Thurso and surrounding area.
Murray, Ellie and their staff were exceptional and we are already planning another holiday next year in the north highlands and will definitely stopping at Mackays again.
