Didn't expect that you could have such a delicious meals. Dinner and breakfast were without comparison over the whole Scotland Tour. An absolute MUST HAVE if you come here. Small drawback: Road outside is a little noisy.

Stayed here for 2 nights Excellent chef Ray, reasonable prices, served well and no hurry. Lovely couple to chat to, particularly Linda. Very helpful in guiding us in what to do and see. Tired bedroom & decor, but comfortable and homely. Although there was free Wi fi you had to stand outside their house to receive it !!

We were doing the North Coast 500 and we spent our first night here. Clean and tidy rooms. Best of all is the food that Ray prepared. I haven't had food like that anywhere else before. It was simply amazing.

The location couldn't be any better. It is literally 1 minute from Garve Station which was such a relief on my arrival. Ray and Linda are the perfect hosts.

Our room was across a courtyard and although small...

Linda did not hesitate in offering to feed my young family and made us most welcome in our two ensuite rooms. My husband and our two dogs had a...

“Check if you are in the main house or the annex, one of the annexes is next to the road (room 3) and if you are a light sleeper, you may be disturbed by the light road side traffic.”
