We've recently returned from 2 weeks of bed and breakfasting around Scotland, and this was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. It was the only place that we stayed for 3 nights, and we're glad we did. Highlights of our stay were the welcome that we received when we arrived 2 hours early, the chats and many cups of tea and pieces of delicious cake and shortbread with Manda and Lindsey , getting to know the three fun Westies and the delicious breakfasts that we had. Some of the B & Bs that we stayed at were almost like hotels; here we really felt that we were being welcomed into their home, along with their other guests, and we soon all got to know one another around the breakfast table and in the sitting room. We received great suggestions on walks and restaurants, and were only sorry that we couldn't follow all of them because my husband came down with a cold. We'll have to come back!

Room Tip: The largest room is the one with the twin beds in it.

Hi Patricia and Harvey
I am so glad to hear you had such a wonderful time touring around Scotland and thanks for sharing your experience of staying with us by writing a review, we very much appreciate your kind words. I am sure you will not need much of an excuse to return to Scotland when time allows and hopefully Harvey will skip catching the cold next time.
Take care of each other
Kind regards

We were taking a couple of days to celebrate our "many year" wedding anniversary so only stayed one night , we have a wee dog "Poppy" so it is vital that we go to a place with people that have a genuine liking for animals. It was a delight to find like minded folk in Manda & Lindsey , they are so very warm and welcoming and have a lovely way of making you feel totally at home , it was a super time and really enhanced our anniversary celebration.
The house was delightful and had some really nice touches for the visitor .
Would we go again ? we most certainly would.

Room Tip: We imagine all the rooms are as good as each other.

We stayed at Craik Na Dav during out Great Glen Walk and it was a fabulous experience. We could not have asked for more from our stay, brilliant hosts, best Scottish breakfast, fantastic room and spotlessly clean throughout. As well as an amazing location. A MUST STOP! Best accommodation you could ask to stay in! We will definitely go back and soon I hope! We took our dog and the B&B is very Dog friendly and it was a pleasure to spend time here. You receive a very warm welcome on arrival and this is felt throughout your whole stay. Could not say enough good things about this place it is a real find!

When looking for accommodation on the internet you are never sure what you will get until you arrive.
This is everything you want and more, from the moment you walk through the door until you leave it feels as if you are truly welcome, only wish that we could have stayed longer (rooms booked up).
Peace and quiet and only a very short distance from Loch Ness, we brought our dog Bella who made herself at home.
If you need a base close to the Loch - Look no further - this is all you need.

This is an excellent B&B to stay at. Manda and Lindsey are really welcoming and have a wealth of local knowledge (thanks for the wildlife tips!) the fruit cake you gave us on arrival was the best I've ever had and the dram of whisky in the room was a lovely touch. The rooms were also brilliantly clean. Breakfast was delicious and made even nicer by watching the garden birds eat theirs from the window. I can't wait to go back to this homely B&B and thoroughly recommend you stay here :) Laura & Marcus & Lindsay & Simon

We had a wonderful 6 night stay at Craik Na Dav and can not praise it enough, from the warm welcome with tea and yummy shortbread and fruit cake to the cosy bed and helpful advise we were truly made to feel welcome in Lindsey and Manda's home and within a short time felt like we were staying with friends. The rooms where warm clean and cosy with everything we needed (including fresh shortbread every day !) Lindsey and Manda were attentive and helpful throughout our stay kindly giving us a lovely bottle of wine for our anniversary and even offering popcorn when we borrowed a film to watch in our room .
We ordered a packed lunch on one of the days which was very nice and very good value for money and also the supper with lovely homemade soup.
The breakfast was excellent with a wide selection all freshly cooked complemented with yummy homemade jams fresh coffee and fruit, cereals and yogurts all of which was in plentiful supply.
The bed and breakfast was situated in an ideal place for taking in the wonderful country side.
And finally 'the boys' three lovely friendly little dogs who you could meet if you wanted and who where kept at a discreet distance at meal times. All in all a wonderful stay in a wonderful place !

Room Tip: All rooms seen very clean and comfortable

It was a very pleasant experience opening this B&B 'door, after another day of driving on the "wrong side of the road"'.An oasis of normalcy with two friendly and welcoming ladies, a beautiful , spotless home in the middle of nature.For the tired traveller tea,coffee,various baked goodies are offered, but in our case we took the offer of the dram of whiskey :).Conversation starts easily as it is impossible not to find common topics if you are a nature lover, a history buff, bird watcher, dog person,etc.Beautiful scenery, comfortable room,excellent Scottish breakfast,useful info about the area...what more do you want? In our case the only thing lacking was more time to spend in such pleasant environment!
Lindsey and Manda ,you have found your calling in life, you make everyone's experience in the
Scottish Highlands a very pleasant one! And I think I will get at least one Westie soon!
Thank you again ladies! All the best!
