We were looking for lodging close to Attadale Gardens, for two nights and close to train stop. Like Attadale Gardens, this is the train stop. That made it our choice. But once we got there, we wanted to stay. The hotel is quaint, the surroundings are awesome, the service was excellent, the owners and staff were over-board hospitable; we weren't treated like tourists, but as guests. We were included; this is a hang-out for "locals," and they didn't treat us as intruders.
The food in the Pub was excellent, as were the breakfasts in the restaurant (part of the B&B plan.) The tea and biscuit tray in our room was restocked twice daily (we drink a lot of tea.)
We even got help with our travel plans to Skye, from Andrew and Eileen - the owners; gleaned from their own family trips, there. And, Oss, the bartender-par-excellent, taught us Scottish history and all about Scotch.
If we get back to Scotland, we will definitely go back to the Strathcarron Hotel!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
