Highlander Hotel

Dining (28)


For true Highland hospitality come to the Highlander, a hotel renowned for its good food and warm welcome. The hotel is an ideal base for touring the North of Scotland with mountain ranges, forests, lochs and river valleys waiting to be explored. Wind down in our inviting restaurant serving an array of dishes made from locally sourced produce. Perhaps a wee dram from the bar would suit; choose a whisky from one of the many local distilleries for which this area is famous for throughout the world.

Booked this hotel as a last minute deal, really keen on taking our dog and it advertised as being ‘dog friendly’. We imagined this would mean our dog would be welcome in our room and reception maybe? Here they went above and beyond to accommodate everyone, including your pooch!

Great from start to finish😊. A lovely warm and friendly welcome from Helga was a good start to our mini break. Our room was clean, comfortable and had everything that we needed. The water was really hot and the shower cubicle was spotless. The bed was comfy so we had a great

Your negativity towards older people saddens me. They are entitled to a holiday like everybody else. Perhaps you misunderstood what you were told when making your booking as we do not allow dogs in our restaurant but make alternative arrangements if you wish to eat with your dog.

Are all rooms the same or can you up grade to larger and are there walk in showers?
All rooms are the same and have a shower cubicle , small lip to get into the shower , ask for 1st floor because if you have guests who roam around for hours you will get no sleep on the ground floor
