“Vanessa & Norman”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2011

I'd actually started our trip by looking for hotels, as we had two dogs and I didn't think B&Bs would welcome them. I came across Craik Na Dav by accident and am so glad I did. We were welcomed with fresh coffee and great warmth, the rooms were spotlessly clean and comfortable, the cottage is a few minutes outwith the village - within a very short walk but completely private in pretty grounds with good parking space.
The village is small but has interesting walks along the river right down to Loch Ness, plus pub, shop and craft shop and is pretty close to Castle Urquhart and Drumnadrochit or on the route up to Skye.
The dogs were virtually hijacked and fussed to bits, as were we, and breakfast was plentiful and good quality. I wish we had stayed there throughout the trip instead of a single night and hope to return - I would recommend Craik Na Dav to friends with confidence. The only slight problem was that I had to coax the dogs to leave....!

Welcoming and friendly. Dog friendly and spotlessly clean. Comfy room lovely en-suite.
Cracking breakfast
I highly recommend the porridge very very tasty! :-))
Packed lunch was also brilliant and kept me going all through the day's walk from Invermoriston to Fort Augustus.

Our double room was compact and newly decorated with lots of nice touches (complementary shortbreads, malt whisky and doggie biscuits for Flynn). Amanda and Lindsey were excellent hosts inviting us for coffee in their lounge and making a real fuss of Flynn. He felt really at home which made our stay all the more relaxing. Definitely recommended for dog owners !

Hi Manda, Lindsey, Angus, Fraser, Skye and the sneaky pine marten, thanks for having us. Your hospitality was second to none. I would definately recommend this B&B, the rooms were fab as was the food. The packed lunch was also delicious. You are fab hosts and I will defo be back to visit. Tell the pine marten I was asking for her. If visiting the highlands this B&B is a must.

The house is modern and beautifully kept. It's situation attracted birds, squirrels and even a pine marten to the garden. Although it was only a two minute walk to the centre of the village, there was no traffic noise The room, including shower room and toilet, was very clean. The owners were very anxious to please, providing tea and home made cakes on arrival. They were exceptionally friendly and attentive at all times. They clearly loved having guests in their house.They were also very helpful in pointing out all the attractions in the village.There was a good selection for breakfast.and a packed lunch was provided at a small extra charge. I could not fault Craik Na Dav in any way.

Of the thirteen hotels/guesthouses/b and b's that we visited on a recent tour of the UK, Carik An Dav was by far the best. Not only is it set in a stunning location, but the owners, Manda and Lindsey, are an absolute delight. On arrival we were greeted with tea and homemade cake, and for the duration of our stay (one night), treated like old friends rather than paying guests. This warm welcome was extended to our Golden Retriever, Jasper who particularly enjoyed being cuddled by Manda and playing with the toys of the three resident Westies! The garden is a haven for wildlife and red squirrels and pine martens regularly visit the bird feeders. Unfortunately, not while we were there but maybe next time! Add to the above comfortable rooms and a delicious breakfast (with Lindsey's homemade preserves!) and you have the perfect b and b. We heartily recommend Craik An Dav and hope to visit again in the future.
