The family has stayed at Assynt House on several occasions now. Many apologies to the owners, Liz & Graham Waugh, for only just getting around to posting a review. Liz & Graham are the perfect hosts. Hospitality comes so naturally it must be in their blood - nothing is too much trouble.
Graham is an accomplished cook so I would recommend that guests take full advantage of those particular skills at some point during their stay. Give the local award winning haggis a try!
Every bedroom is individually and tastefully decorated. The wood panelled living room has a traditional Scottish feel and a delight to relax in.
The garden and grounds are well maintained and great for spotting wildlife.
The location is very convenient for Inverness, Loch Ness, the Black Isle and beyond.
I would thoroughly recommend eating in the Dores Inn in the village of Dores on the shore of Loch Ness. Great food, real ale and wonderful views up the loch.
It may sound cliched but Assynt House is unique and I would thoroughly recommend it to those who want to experience a different type of place to stay. Perfect for a weekend break in the Scottish countryside or as a base for a one or two week holiday.
