“A cosy, welcome oasis from the dreary weather outside! Pleasantly surprised to find this place. It was super welcoming, with delicious food and a great selection of drinks. We had the scallops and salmon which were fresh, modern and beautifully presented – the best meal we had in the highlands. Highly recommend!”

“We were a walk-in with no loyalty or reputation and were treated very well. The patron proudly showed us around his letting rooms and we would have happily nested in any of them. Good luck Billy for the weeks ahead, hope that your enthusiasm carries you forward and you get your rewards. All the building blocks are there for success.”

“We had a fantastic meal here and were made to feel very welcome. Proprietor and his staff were incredibly friendly and the Chef also came to asked us if we were enjoying our meal. We were shown the new accommodation and I have to say the rooms are absolutely stunning. Thank you for a lovely evening. Will definitely be back. Highly recommended.”
