Took my partner here for a meal for his birthday. The Albannach was very accommodating to my dietary requirements with being pregnant and made us both feel at ease. The one criticism I have is the portions could have been a slight bit smaller as my meat dish was too much for me to finish. However, my partner would disagree...

This hotel was recommended via the North Coast 500 website under the "Luxury" itinerary but, unfortunately, it was far from luxurious! The hotel is tired to say the least and the grounds could do with a tidy up. Having stayed the preceding nights in two fabulous hotels (the Muckrach in Granton on Spey and the Torridon Hotel) our expectations of...

We took one night in the suite outside the hotel with jacuzzi and the other night we spent in the hotel itself. Both were good rooms. The food was amazing although the dining hall a little dark - that was all part of the charm. The lobster in particular was a highlight of our trip. Good selection of wines. We...

The most delightful start to a New Year ever. Living in a crofting area of the NW we are lucky enough to have access to the best seafood, beef, lamb, pork, venison, fruit etc and we don't often go out. When one eats at The Albannach food is enjoyed in such an exciting and different way. The passion and skill...

What an amazing evening, 7 delightful courses each one better than the last a pure taste explosion. First class service from warm and friendly staff, then the cherry on the top when the lady owner came over and spent some time introducing herself and telling us a little of her history. All in all a very enjoyable evening was had...

Food was best ever, service and staff were first class, small intimate dining erea, can't find the smallest thing to fault. The seven course set menus was great, just enough of each course to enjoy and leave you satisfied.

We booked a meal at the Albannach and changed the direction of our NC 500 trip to coordinate our booking with our travel. Though there were only a handful of diners on our visit - or perhaps because of it - there was no lack of detail to the preparation of the courses of our meal and their presentation. We...

What a delight the Albannach is! We were in Lochinver for work and stayed for 2 nights. I had one of the rooms in the main house and it was very modern and beautifully laid out. Staff were incredibly helpful. The food was exceptional. Both evenings we were treated to a real culinary feast. At the end of a long...

I read some recent reviews and they tempered my enthusiasm for the long journey north. However, I should not have worried. Yes, the conservatory could be updated a little but our bedroom was modern and very comfortable. The food was excellent on the two evenings we ate there and the staff and owners were all delightful. I would happily go...
