Only having to drive a short distance between Loch Ness and Tain, we arrived at Dunbius Guest House at 12h00 on the day we were supposed to check in, and although in the back of our minds we were aware that we might be a bit early, we decided to try and check in nonetheless. In our experience, most b&b's allow check in as from 14h00 or would at least allow us to drop our luggage as a gesture of goodwill to their guests. By the host's reaction, we derived that our early arrival was obviously very inconveniet. We were received quite cold, as check in apparently only started at 16h30, which is completely unheard of! We were not invited in at this stage, and not permitted to leave our baggage there while exploring the local attractions until check in time. My husband asked if he could possibly use the rest room, and was also denied this. Clearly we were unwelcome and at this stage became very apprehensive of the choice we had made. We checked in (eventually) at 16h30 and were pleasently surprised with the size, cleanliness and quality of the rooms. We ended up having a good stay in the end, however we also need to mention that the breakfasts were tiny, with slices of toast being quartered and shared between guests. Having said this, at 27 pounds a night per person, I do not mind a small breakfast!
