“PERFECTION....... ONCE AGAIN!”
Reviewed 28 October 2012

My husband and I have just returned from this AMAZING hotel. We travelled the world earlier this year and have come to the conclusion that Tigh na Sgiath just cannot be beaten! It has lots of character and the warmth of the welcome is matched by the wonderful open fire. The rooms are immaculate and very comfortable, The owners are charming and the most perfect hosts offering superb service in a highly professional but natural and unobtrusive style.
.
The food is first class - everything is prepared to order with fresh ingredients. Home-made bread, soups, sorbet and chocolates accompany every evening meal. We have eaten in various places locally but the food just does not match the standard of Elaine's cooking. You get a good idea by looking at the sample menus on their website!

There is so much to do in the surrounding area - lots of walks for all weathers and all levels of ability. The hotel is in easy reach of the wide range of sports activities and attractions available in the Cairngorm National Park. We were spoilt for choice of things to do and will have to go back again. Even without leaving the hotel, we had a great bird and squirrel watching session, whilst sitting beside the fire. Our three night stay was over all too soon and our next visit can't come soon enough!

Our first time at this hotel and agree with all the rave reviews. From the time of arrival to the time of departure it was an absolute pleasure - fantastic food, wonderful hosts, luxurious bed, roaring fire, complementary sherry - and the dog made welcome! We will return.

We stayed at Tigh na Sgiath as a short "mini-honeymoon" and we are so glad we chose this hotel. Everything - the service, rooms and food - was absolutely impeccable.

Complimentary drinks on arrival, beautiful bedroom with stunning views of the surrounding hills, very well presented sitting room with roaring fire and to top it all off - champagne and a congratulations card to toast our wedding.

I highly recommend both dinner and afternoon tea to anyone who stays here - the food is delightful.

Thank you to everyone there for making our first few days of married life perfect.

We holidayed at this hotel for the first time in October.We were well received by the Owners,welcomed with a complementary drink while our luggage was taken up to our room.We were very satisfied with our accommodation,found to be clean and most comfortable.Our friendly hosts went out of their way to ensure we were well looked after and it would be fair to say that the breakfasts and dinners were superb.
We have had no hesitation in booking now for 2013 as we know this hotel is in great demand.

Tigh na Sgiath is a special place run by two special people. It captures the real essence of Highland hospitality - traditional but with modern comforts and attention to detail. The food and service is exemplary - when you spot the owner/chef ironing sheets at 11pm you know you are somewhere where they really care! Although it was our first visit we were in a minority as most guests we spoke to keep coming back - as we will!

This was our first but certainly not the last visit to Tigh na Sgiath, in fact we booked to return before we left! From first walking in and being welcomed by Iain the owner and being offered a complimentary whisky or sherry we were made to feel at home and welcome. The hotel is clean, cosy and welcoming. We stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed the amazing 5 course dinner from an extensive menu each night. The breakfasts were pretty special too with the best haggis I have ever tasted. My husband commented that his black pudding was the best he'd ever tasted. The staff were friendly and polite and clearly knew how to treat their guests. It was wonderful to see so many red squirrels whilst enjoying an exquisite Scottish breakfast. We can't wait for our return trip early next year.
