Stayed here recently whilst doing the NC500 road trip. Dinner was not available the night we stayed and we adjourned to the Caberfeidh pub for that. The hotel is a bit quirky but very comfortable and friendly and with fabulous views from the room we had. The setting is quiet and tranquil and we had birds singing at the window...

It didn't work for us. Our expectations were high as we had chosen some very nice hotels to stay and eat in on our NC500 road trip, but we felt echo's of some previous reviews where the place was a bit tired. Our room (4 poster bed) was perfectly ok, but didn't have a wow factor - having said that...

The building stands on a slope overlooking the village of Lochinver with lovely views of Canisp and Suilven. The car park is situated below the house but it is possible to drive your car close to the entrance to pack and unpack cases. We stayed in the Loft Room which was very comfortable and spacious with a large bed and...

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.
