This lovely building is situated in a secluded spot near the Cromarty Firth. The house very clean, tasteful and comfortable. The room was lovely with crisp white bedding and beautiful views. The owners are friendly and helpful

There was an honor bar in the hallway which was a great idea. Bathroom was very small but you actually didn't need anything bigger. The handy hot water shower...

My wife and I just got back from our Scotland Babymoon (we are expecting). The Kiltearn House was the second stop of our trip. Its run by Nel and Ed, and they do a fabulous job of making their guests comfortable, which is the true mark of a great B&B. Their sunroom looks over the yard and Scottish hillside, we...
