Reviewed 7 April 2014

We stayed at the Hightae Inn for one night on our way home from Skye. The welcome from Mark was second to none, the room was lovely with super soft furnishings, decor and the bed so comfortable. Both the evening meal and the breakfast were first class. We met Morag and ?the dog (sorry forgot his name) next morning and both were as friendly and welcoming as Mark. If we ever go North again we will definitely be staying with you. We wish you every success at Hightae. Carol and Anthony

Really chuffed you enjoyed your stay with us so much and that our wee dog (Thomas) behaved himself sufficiently to say hello/goodbye in the morning without major incident. Give us a call next time you're heading to or back from NW Scotland - delighted to have you back.

The hospitality, ambience, catering (and value for money) at Hightae Inn are second to none. Our hosts couldn't do enough for us, the Inn had a lovely, inviting and cosy atmosphere, and the food was fabulous - excellent and varied drinks selection also! The rooms were clean and very comfortable and I can't recommend it highly enough. Thank you, Mark and Morag, for making our weekend so enjoyable.

We were so warmly received when we arrived and found everything absolutely first-class.
Extremely clean and comfortable room (fabulous bed!), relaxing atmosphere and the food was assuredly the best we have sampled in a very long time.
Mark and Morag are wonderful hosts who could not have made us feel more welcome or at home....they deserve the greatest success and we sincerely hope to re-visit. Thank you so much.

We received a very warm welcome from Mark, our room was great and we enjoyed a great nights sleep.
We ate our evening meal at the HIghtae, and this meal was of Michelin standard. Absolutely fantastic. Great wine (and beer!), a very relaxed atmosphere, but never ignored, despite being busy.

Breakfast was great also (the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs were second to none). We have highly recommended this accommodation to our friends and family, and we can't wait to stop there again next time we are heading south.

Friendliness and quality.
First of all - a great welcome - we were really pleased that Mark and Morag had bothered to check our names and remember them - it makes a great start to be greeted like this and we felt welcome immediately.
Brilliant beer - so good to be able to relax with a decent pint.
Very comfortable and quiet rooms - real milk in a jug - this sort of detail really makes a difference for us.
Top class breakfast - one of the things we can't understand is that most B+Bs simply don't know how to cook good scrambled eggs - Morag does.
We would not hesitate to recommend the Hightae Inn and we are very likely to come back.

NB All this and eclectic music in the bar as well - we were really impressed to hear "A Meeting by the River" (Ry Cooder and V.M. Bhatt).
