We stayed the 3rd time in this nice small bed and breakfast. It's one of the most interesting and beautiful buildings I ever stayed. The hosts, Hillary and Herbert, are so nice people - always interested in you and having all the time a helping hand. I can only recommend to stay in this B&B when you are in the... More

We stayed with Hilary and Herbie in June. Although it is now September, we wanted to make sure to write a review. The Old Kirk is a wonderful, quaint B&B outside of Forres (about 10-15 minute drive away). Hilary and Herbie make this renovated church feel like home. They are incredibly kind and welcoming. Herbie even made dinner reservations for... More

We had an extremly enjoyable stay at The Old Kirk in Dyke. A briliant place to stay! Brilliant was the location, the old kirk itself, our room, the breakfast and of course the very friendly and always helpful host. You would like to go somewhere for dinner, visit a site, go for a walk? Herbie can surely provide you with... More

Whatever you expect when sleeping inside a church - you are wrong! This place is just wonderful. All rooms are lovingly equipped. Herbies breakfast is not only excellent tasting, it is also very entertaining. We loved it! Heidi and Joachim / Germany

Amazing place to stay, and very nice owners. I was just passing this place on my bike, and stopped to ask for some water, and I was amazed by the beauty of this place. Owners are really nice people as well. A place worth visiting.

The most gracious hosts, the most beautiful old church with very lovely energy you can feel the minute you walk in. We were so very comfortable there, truly one of our best stays in our 2 week travels in Scotland! If you are going anywhere near Findhorn, this B&B, is worth the couple extra miles from Findhorn.

If you think that sleeping in an old church is somewhat eerie you are thoroughly mistaken (as we were). The Old Kirk is welcoming, luxurious, calm and cozy. And it has good vibrations. And Hilary and Herbie are just loveable!

The hosts were very accommodating. They provided Gluten Free cereal and bread. The room was lovely. The bed, over 200 years old, so pretty, was very comfortable. Breakfast was yummy. Their garden full of flowers and birds.

TripAdvisor has it's uses...... I booked The Old Kirk on the basis of a search, leading to the reviews and after inspection of the B&B's website. I am so glad I did. My wife and I stayed 2 nights, I wish we could have stayed longer. B&B's don't come much more interesting than this, in terms of the building used;... More

Read the reviews thought we would see it for ourselves on our family weekend away, the Old Kirk did not disappoint. Not only does it offer spacious luxurious bedrooms it also has the added bonus of a snug little library and beautiful living room with log fire lit in the evening, not to mention a superb service from hosts Hilary...
