    We liked everything about the property. The room was spacious and large bathroom with jetted tub. The food served in the restaurant was one of the best meals we had. The Chef knows his stuff. The staff and service were excellent.

    This is my "Go-to" Hotel in Caithness. Well done the Private Owners - others should follow your lead but don't.
