Excellent inn. Spotlessly clean, lovely room and bathroom, very large and comfortable bed. The welcome is warm and friendly and the home cooking delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed our two days there. If you like whisky you will find Mark very knowledgeable and he has a great selection.

An unexpected gem situated not far from the M74, we had chosen it as an ideal location to break our long drive from the south coast of England to the Highlands of Scotland.

My wife and I booked room number three and dinner after reading the good reviews in tripadvisor. We had high expectations.

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... More

“On a practical note, it was impossible to fill the kettle under the tap in the bathroom basin. Also, fresh milk in the room was provided on arrival, but not available for the early morning cuppa as the owners were not around to request it; uht milk would have been acceptable, but not supplied.”
