Geoff - we're DG11 1JS. Care if using satnav though, as it'll lead you along some pretty wretched wee lanes. Best to follow directions on our website. Cheers M&M, The Hightae Inn.

Description
A great little Restaurant with rooms open for Evening Suppers 5 nights a week (closed Mondays & Tuesdays) serving locally sourced home cooked food to order in our cosy lounge bar. As we only have a limited number of covers and the table is yours for the night, booking really is essential. Please note we are closed during the Winter season from December, reopening again in March.
