  • "Good location and property is an old bank which is listed."

    Facilities are very good, lovely kitchen and attractive decor. The simple things would have helped though, a mop and bucket plus a brush. The windows are huge and with central heating poor, radaitors you couldn’t get all hot, no matter what, so either system needed balancing or bleeding..we did end up buying a fan heater to help. With the heat loss from huge windows and super high ceiling was an issue. However top rated property and very comfortable plus great facilities.

  • "The area round about the accommodation is a bit run down but the actual accommodation was first class."

    Well appointed and beautifully restored inside and out.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay in the beautiful house and Tain."

    All the places we visited are beautiful even just driving around except the weather that day we went Castle of Mey, Dunnet head and John O' Groats when it was so cold and misty we can't see any view. We were amazed to see many birds and million of small Fishes at the Port of Mahomack. I was even catching it with my hand.

  • "Probably our fault but, as we had a dog, a garden would have been useful."

  • "I don’t think I saw anything in the listing about there being no outdoor space or parking restrictions on the street."

    Neither was a huge issue during our stay. Facilities and equipment in the property were of good quality and comfort.

  • "The accommodation was very comfortable and well equipped."

    The only item we did not locate was a clothes drying rack. The recommendations for local restaurants, Greens and The Oystercatcher, was appreciated and it was great to have local seafood readily available to purchase a short walk away. The location was good for beautiful drives exploring the northeast of Scotland and for a couple of walks by the sea and atop a mountain. The flowers on arrival were a beautiful touch.
