We were on the Highland Way and this was one of our stops. Compared to the other places, this was a bit of a disappointment. The rooms were a bit tired, the staff not that friendly and the hotel quite noisy due to the pub downstairs. On the plus side, the pub was only downstairs and served a good meal... More

The place is a perfect location for walks and hikers, nature is stunning. The evening supper we had in the pub downstairs was superb...! The (family) room we had was spacious and very clean, nope, i have no remarks...!

Very good value for money. The inn was busy with a good mix of travellers and locals. Everyone very friendly. We had an evening meal, which was plentiful, hot and served without delay. The room was a good size and clean, but quite old fashioned in decor and furnishings - nothing wrong with that. Breakfast was excellent - well cooked,... More

This Inn was booked for us by the walking group, the group have been staying here for years and now I know why, friendly and helpful staff and regulars to the bar. Nice food, lots to choose from. Great breakfast to start us on our walk the next morning. Comfortable and clean rooms for our overnight. Highly recommended.

Location in a very quite and isolated, small village. Good view and close to the main road. Hotel restaurant and Breakfast were both fine. The room was nice and well cleaned and maintained. We checked in late at night and had to check in at the bar which was very busy. It seems that its the only restaurant in the... More

Stayed there for one night and really enjoyed it. The room was a bit in the small side, but nice and clean and featured all you would expect to find in an inn room. We had dinner at the pub, food was good, too bad salmon was over. Midges are really annoying..... Can definitely spoil your Highland holiday!!!!

The website for this pub/hotel describes their rooms as “simple.” With this I agree and I have no problem with that. The site also describes the rooms as “clean and fresh.” Wrong. The room had a strong urine odor which kept us both up that night. There was no room for our luggage other than on the floor next to... More

Very low quality / price ratio. Breakfast is included, but nothing special. A child found a hair in the dish. Missing every attention to detail and I think rather tatty. I would not recommend absolutely
