We found the Hightae purely through Trip Advisor when we were looking for somewhere to stay overnight on the way to a week in Scotland. Rather than go for the "hotel off the motorway" we were looking for somewhere a bit different and a bit special.
What can I say - it does what it says on the tin! Nice room, clean and lovely food (actually, it was the best meal we had all week, although we didn't know it at the time!).
Mark and Morag were perfect hosts and very friendly. Couldn't do enough for us, even to the extent of posting on a jacket we'd managed to leave in the wardrobe!
Would we stay again? Yes, without a doubt. We are planning another week in Scotland next year and the Hightae will certainly be on the agenda for the overnighter!

Room Tip: We had 2 rooms upstairs and both were equally nice.

We stayed at the Hightae Inn at the end of August on our way North from London to the Isle of Arran. The inn was recommended by a friend who stayed there a couple of times for the same purpose. He said that it was a really good place to stay and eat. We agree with him. Very friendly and welcoming.

Completely unexpected. Hightae Inn exceeded every aspect of the hospitality business.
The room was comfortable, large, and very private with all the modern facilities blended into the luxurious designs of days of old.
Mark and Morag Cuthbertson are perfectly matched with their talents, skills, and they generously give attention to each guest, providing them with a lasting memory of a wonderful vacation in this part of Scotland.
The breakfast is superb, and the dinners are heavenly. They know quality and can certainly cook to anyone's satisfaction. Included in their interests are wines, scotch(s), and travel. Conversation flows easily, naturally, and is inclusive, with enough levity to leave a smile on your face all day.

Room Tip: You must have a car to get into and out of Hightae which is beautifully isolated, with a cheery pub and a wonderfully relaxed restaurant that you hesitate to leave.

We stayed at the Hightae Inn midd august for three nights. A warm welcome when we arrived on the Friday early evening. We booked dinner in the restaurant which was just lovely, Morag certainly can cook with flare so well presented. Mark served us and kept us topped up with Beer and wine, even a tipple of the old whisky later that evening, has rather a large selection to choose from. Make sure you try some even if you are not a whisky fan, he will have one there that you will enjoy. Breakfast was just fab, so well presented got a few tips will use myself when I have visitors to stay. Our room was so clean and cosy, not a speck of dust in sight, not that we went around checking mind, but you just knew when you entered the room. Settled in straight away.
We took time out travelling around, visiting the country fair, and nearby villages, coastal drives during our time there. Lots to see and do Mark even gave us directions to take with us with things to visit see and do. Yes we enjoyed it very much and would certainly recommend a visit to the (Hightae it is the Inn to stay why not get away)... Enjoy....
