“Highly recommended Country House stay”
Reviewed 13 September 2013

We have recently stayed here for 2 nights and endorse the positive comments of other reviewers. The warm welcome and whisky were most acceptable after a long journey. Our room was clean and very comfortable, with all amenities, including complementary water, fruit, tea and coffee.
Ian was a very helpful and friendly host.
The food was excellent, both at breakfast and in the evening. Red squirrels appearing in the grounds during breakfast just added to the charm.
The atmosphere of the Country House Hotel is very convivial, with opportunities to meet other guests, in our case from around the world. A highly recommended place to stay, which we hope to revisit.

As others have mentioned, a warm reception by Iain with a wee dram to relax before settling in to the room. One word to North Americans: there are no elevators, so even if you choose a room on the first floor, remember you'll have to schlep your luggage up the stairs from the ground floor, although Iain was only too happy to help.

Our room, Nethy, had quite a bit of room for a facility like this, although you have to be careful getting out of bed because of the "cottage" roofline that might cause you to knock your head a bit.
The bathroom was cramped, with a shower stuck in the middle like a phone booth between the toilet and the sink, but it was a good shower and it's understandable that in a house this old with rooms converted for a B&B you're going to have some dicey features.

Our friends' room Speanoch, had been upgraded since we booked it earlier in the year with some rather odd features such as a bathtub with coloured lights on the bottom and a bathtub flat screen TV and a heated floor. Although they paid the original price quoted, the current cost with these improvements was significantly higher. Speanoch also has a 4 poster bed and is a bit cramped compared to Nethy.

Breakfasts were superb and Iain and Elaine went out of their way to accommodate some special requests we made. We had dinner one night and it was wonderful. Everybody loved their choices and it begins with a small selection of canapés in the sitting area and ends there as well with petit fours and coffee.

All in all a great choice for touring the Cairngorms and Easteross.

Just stayed here for a superb 2 nights in the Ballindalloch room. The host (owner?) Ian was so helpful throughout our stay and it appeared that nothing was too much trouble. The room was superb - large, well equipped with lovely views and a very special bedroom with jacuzzi. Coffee, teas and extras in the room, wifi, dvd and plenty of dvds to choose from. We ate in the restaurant on one night and the menu and quality were very good. Breakfast was included and really sumptuous with home made porridge and full Scottish breakfast for me. Plenty of other options existed. We both had a lovely stay in this hotel and will return when we have the opportunity. A superb example of a traditional Scottish small hotel with service to match. Richard and Patrycja.

Room Tip: First floor with view over the garden - Balladalloch certainly a great room.

Just back from a two night stay. We were greeted by Ian and offered a sherry or whiskey before being shown to our room. The evening menu choices were great and the service was excellent. Our room was lovely and spacious and we had complimentary water and fruit. We'd highly recommend it and would love to go back.

This was our 2nd visit to Tigh na Sgiath once in May 2012 & then in July 2013. Each time the weather has been scorching hot so perhaps the Scottish Tourist Board should hire our services! We got to know about Tigh na Sgiath through their attractive website and in particular their sample menus which included gluten free. As I am coeliac and require a gluten free diet we thought this was ideal and we were not disappointed. Proprietor Elaine is the chef and prepares excellent meals with a very good choice. Each dish is marked if it is gluten free and other dishes can be easily adapted. At dinner and breakfast it was obvious that proprietors Iain and Elaine were aware of the importance of cross contamination issues.
Tigh na Sgiath is situated in an ideal location for touring surrounding areas and it is lovely to come back at the end of each day to an extremely comfortable room and a delicious evening meal.
We were there with our dog and it was nice to be able to sit with him in the lounge after our evening meal and to chat with other guests.
I would thoroughly recommend Tigh na sgiath to everyone who enjoys good food and in particular to other coeliacs in the knowledge that they can enjoy a choice of excellent tasty meals without the worry of being ill.We look forward to future visits to Tigh na Sgiath and enjoying Iain and Elaine's hospitality.

Room Tip: Cromdale is a superior room which is large and extremely comfortable. From the window you can watch...

Beautiful location, great food, brilliant service! I especially liked the complementary whisky on arrival and the Scottish breakfast was the best I've ever had. Iain was a great host and even offered my wife a coat to wear as she forgot to bring one.

This is a wonderful Hotel like no other. When you arrive you are offered a complementary whisky or sherry to drink in the luxurous lounge before your bags are taken up to your room. The rooms are fantastic, with fresh fruit, water and a wonderful view. The meal was out of this world - 5 courses- vegetarian, all served in crystal glasses in a loverly atmosphere. The breakfast was also excellent. A full vegtarain Scottish breakfast with veggie haggis. This hotel makes the perfect place for a romantic stay.
The only negative comment would be that it on the edge of a small village, so you need to eat in the hotel itself.
