“Friendly Quiet Home”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

We stayed at Craik Na Dav in Invermoriston for one night after visiting the Isle of Skye. The village is small and quaint. Lindsey and Manda made us feel more than at home. Our room was small, but well furnished and very clean. We loved playing with their three dogs. Lindsey phoned the restaurant next door for dinner reservations for us. She also phoned our car rental agency to help us fix a problem with the car. We had time for a walk before dinner and followed Manda's recommendation to view the double bridges and waterfall. Well worth the walk. In the morning they served us an excellent breakfast. It was nice to chat with the two other couples who were also staying there. We thoroughly enjoyed watching all the birds visiting the bird feeders during breakfast. Would definitely stay here again.

Hello Knightrider,

Thanks for taking the time to write a review of our hoe for us, we enjoyed chatting to you both and the dogs loved the attention, as always.

I hope that the rest of your trip went smoothly with no car niggles.

All the very best to you both,

Happy travels,

Manda and Lindsey

Lindsey & Manda were very welcoming from the start as we stumbled on their doorstep after a long day's hike we received a much needed cup of tea and home baking. The room was very comfortable and clean with a wee dram at hand to numb the walker's pain! The garden hosts lots of birds and a regular red squirrel for nature lovers. We only stayed for one night as we were moving on quickly but we'd definitely recommend this B&B for a short or long sojourn. Make sure to plan an evening meal at the local hotel in advance as there aren't many eating establishments around.

Hi Fiona,

Thanks for the review, I hope that you and David enjoyed the rest of the trip and that you found cycling the second half of the Great Glen Way a bit easier than walking the first half.

Hope that you also enjoyed the city part of the trip in Glasgow and the games.

All the very best,

Manda and Lindsey

Thank you for a lovely stay, it was the highlight of our dog Molly's trip to be in such a friendly hostel. For dog owners or non-dog owners alike this is the perfect stop-off for exploring the Loch Ness region. Nothing was to much trouble for our charming hosts (I've never found a wee dram left so considerately in a b&b room before) and the breakfasts are enough to set you up for the whole day.

Hi Nicola,

It was a pleasure to meet you, Zoltan and, of course, Molly. Thank you for taking the time to write to write a review for us.

I was glad (make that jealous) to hear that you had good sightings of the dolphins off the east coast. Hope that Orkney lived up to its reputation and that you enjoyed the archaeology.

Take care, happy travels,

Manda and Lindsey

This was our second visit to Craik Na Dav and we very rarely visit anywhere twice, only because there are so may places to go. But we had a great reunion with Lindsay and Manda and although they could not provide a pine marten this year we got a close up viewing of two red squirrels. This is a fantastic b&b and we can't add more to the hundreds of positive reviews. You just have to go there. Lots of thanks Susan, Ian and Paddy.

Had a great time here in a lovely B&B hosted by Lindsey and Manda who are excellent. Located ten minutes from Fort Augustus which is very beautiful especially when bathed in sunshine which it was when we visited. We stayed in Ash which was a very well equipped clean and comfortable room which even had a wee dram to hand. Lovely touch. The garden has a great selection of wildlife including a resident red squirrel which we saw.Great place to take your dog which you can see on their web site (Bracken).

Room Tip: Just trust the hosts!!

Lovely sisters, lovely dogs lovely place. Lindsay & Manda where so helpful and friendly and made us feel really welcome. This was our first stay at a B&B and didn't really know what to expect, but we loved it :)) Nice rooms, clean room/bathroom, really nice breakfasts and lunshis :)) stayed for a week and it was perfectly located so we could see a lot of castles, nature and have nice dinners out. Got good tipses on where we should go to get the most out of our trip! Next time we will stay for two ;p This trip would not have been the same without Lindsay & Manda and their happy funny dogs <3 Thank you for all your help Lady's :)

We stayed at Craik Na Dav whilst walking the Great Glen Way with our dog Lucy (who now appears on their website). We had an excellent stay, were greeted with tea and home made cake and made to feel very welcome - especially Lucy! A great dog friendly place to stay in. We would definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: I am sure all the rooms are great.
