“There's none better!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

Completely unexpected. Hightae Inn exceeded every aspect of the hospitality business.
The room was comfortable, large, and very private with all the modern facilities blended into the luxurious designs of days of old.
Mark and Morag Cuthbertson are perfectly matched with their talents, skills, and they generously give attention to each guest, providing them with a lasting memory of a wonderful vacation in this part of Scotland.
The breakfast is superb, and the dinners are heavenly. They know quality and can certainly cook to anyone's satisfaction. Included in their interests are wines, scotch(s), and travel. Conversation flows easily, naturally, and is inclusive, with enough levity to leave a smile on your face all day.

Room Tip: You must have a car to get into and out of Hightae which is beautifully isolated, with a cheery pub...

We stayed at the Hightae Inn midd august for three nights. A warm welcome when we arrived on the Friday early evening. We booked dinner in the restaurant which was just lovely, Morag certainly can cook with flare so well presented. Mark served us and kept us topped up with Beer and wine, even a tipple of the old whisky later that evening, has rather a large selection to choose from. Make sure you try some even if you are not a whisky fan, he will have one there that you will enjoy. Breakfast was just fab, so well presented got a few tips will use myself when I have visitors to stay. Our room was so clean and cosy, not a speck of dust in sight, not that we went around checking mind, but you just knew when you entered the room. Settled in straight away.
We took time out travelling around, visiting the country fair, and nearby villages, coastal drives during our time there. Lots to see and do Mark even gave us directions to take with us with things to visit see and do. Yes we enjoyed it very much and would certainly recommend a visit to the (Hightae it is the Inn to stay why not get away)... Enjoy....

What a great find! Mark and Morag are great hosts, providing a very warm, friendly welcome, a relaxed, humorous atmosphere, comfort and delicious home cooking. I am so glad I changed our stay from 1 night to 2. We were able to enjoy a relaxed Friday evening in the cosy bar, after a hard day at work, knowing we'd have a full Saturday to explore the area, then return to the comfort and welcome, plus a delicious, hot, home cooked meal. What more could you ask for. How about a very comfortable king size bed with a proper feather duvet, pristeen white cotton bedding and getting up to a delicious cooked breakfast. Suited us to a tee.

For whisky lovers, there is an extensive range in the bar, including some international options from the likes of South Africa and Japan. For those with a liking for beer, try some of the West, St Mungo for a Scottish brewed beer (Glasgow based independent brewery) with German know how. Mark's knowledge will guide the uninitiated, so give the whisky or beer a try.

Morag's home cooking is wholesome, very tasty and worth the wait, as she prepares to order. Wise to book a table in advance, as the Hightae Inn meals are very popular with the locals and those coming from farther afield. For those staying overnight, or longer, book dinner at the same time so you don't lose out.

All in all, a great place with the best of Scottish hospitality.

Mark & Morag are probably the most perfect B&B owners we've ever had the pleasure to stay with! Upon arrival we were welcomed by name rather than having to be looked up on a pc. Morag's food was incredible & Mark was the perfect front of house host. The room was spotless & extremely comfortable. Just what we needed after the long drive. The stay was made all the more special by having multiple cuddles with Thomas the Welsh terrier. He's simply gorgeous! Many thanks for a wonderful stay from Doug & Lisa.

We only stayed one night on the way up from the South of England to the North of Scotland but were delighted with the standard of the room. We stayed in Room 1 (?) on the ground floor with a King sized bed and it was really comfortable and well appointed. Mark and Morag were excellent hosts and the food was delicious. Just what was needed after a long day of motorway driving, quiet and welcoming.

We only stayed one night and how disappointing...wish it could have been longer. Morag and Mark are perfect at what they do. It is a small establishment that offers great interiors, excellent food and luxurious rooms. The choice of whisky is terrific and Mark's ability to describe it verges on poetic. Only five rooms means a very personal service that deserves all the success it gets.

Room Tip: It is a very quiet village and area and all rooms are peaceful.
