It was delightful to be welcomed by Minty and Gavin and to be served tea and cake in a sunny peaceful sitting room. Craigiewood is set in pretty gardens in the countryside north of Inverness and lives up to its photos. Minty had booked us a table for dinner at the North Kessock Hotel, where we had a lovely view...

I stayed for just one night to collect my husband from the Caledonian Sleeper train before heading back up north. As I had the dog with me I needed somewhere I could give him a good off lead walk so the hotel right by the station was out of the question. Craigiewood was perfect as it is only about ten...

Thank you very much for your review. We much enjoyed your stay with us even if only for one night and I am very glad that Toby appreciated following Gavin's paths in the garden! I hope that your final week's holiday with your husband was relaxing and peaceful. The sun did shine for you! With our best wishes.

We stayed only two nights at Craigiewood but it was wonderful, and we can't wait to return. We especially enjoyed the wonderful surroundings of the immediate area as well as the lovely garden, the cosy living room with the fire and the peace and quietness of it all. Gavin and Minty are fabulous hosts and prepared a truly delicious breakfast....

I can't think why I haven't written about Craigiewood before, having stayed here a few times. The warm welcome never abates; Gavin and Minty's retreat may be secluded in the woods, yet it is so accessible to Inverness and the Highlands; it is the perfect base and launch-point. Their wise counsel on what to see, and how best to use...

We stayed for a week at Craigiewood in May. Minty and Gavin made us extremely welcome in their lovely home. They were very helpful about where and when to go in terms of the weather.

We stayed only 1 night at Craigiewood - a lovely place situated about 4 miles from Inverness but feeling like the middle of the country.Birdlife abounds in a rural garden. Our room was bright, cosy and spacious and the breakfast next morning was great. Our hosts were friendly and welcoming and generous with their travel advice and information. Highly recommended.

We throughly enjoyed our 3 days and nights with Minty and Gavin. They were wonderful friendly hosts who went out of their way to be helpful at all times. The facilities were very clean and took into account all the needs of travellers. The lounge was a beautiful but homely room where we felt very comfortable after a day"s touring....

We much enjoyed having you both to stay but wish it was now as the garden is, at last, looking good and the weather even better. It was great that you had a precious 3 hours at Foulis. I know Australia is a long way but come back and see us sometime. Best wishes from us both.

“The downstairs room has two extra long twin beds and a beautiful view of the side garden, My 6'4" husband was able to sleep quite comfortably. An extra added bonus was the additional sink in the room, it made getting ready easier, and the tub was also very long and comfy to soak in. By far this B&B had the best lighting in the bathroom of pour whole trip!”
