Kate and her team were great, the hotel has all you need and the food is amazing. A warm welcome and great views are to be had from the hotel. We had a full Scottish breakfast and some lovely local fish for dinner.

Fantastic reception on arrival, real fires and friendly staff, I had a simple supper fresh Haddock Battered chips and peas so fresh. The Craggan is just off NC500 route depending on which direction you are travelling it is just before/or after the Kyle of Tongue causeway, take the road to Melness it is so good just go!

Didnt stay over here, just stopped by for Sunday lunch. Nicely cooked meal which didn't overface. Enough room for a dessert. Toilets were located within the bar area dining, which is separate from the restaurant (formal dining)

Do not drive past The Craggan Hotel, pop in for a meal, drinks or an overnight stay, you will not be disappointed! I could not fault The Craggan Hotel at all, the hotel has four immaculate bedrooms, some with beautiful sea views. Although all 4 rooms share a bathroom, it has a lock on the door and is absolutely pristine!...

Interestingly Kate has decided not to go on Booking.com this year as she only has four rooms and can...

We were attracted by the professional signs posted along the main road. The exterior didn't look like a hotel (it was proprietor Kate McKay's family home) but the rooms, though basic, were bright and comfortably cosy. No ensuites but the shared bathroom was huge and clean. Free parking. There is a magical little beach accessible via a short walk through...
