This is simply an amazing B & B to stay at, ideal location for East, North and West Coasts of the Highlands. Must be our 5th/6th Visit but each time just gets better. Neale and Linda are wonderful hosts and go that bit extra to make sure guests have everything they need.. Breakfast is of the very highest standard, plenty of choice and quantity. The rooms are excellent and spacious and very comfortable. We keep returning so that in itself is a wonderful endorsement of how good the " Old Manse" is. So if you are planning a break in the Highlands make sure you book to stay. Finally a massive thankyou to Neale & Linda for another fabulous stay and we wish you well for the rest of 2021. Look forward to staying again in 2022. Best Regards.
We stayed for just the one night but would have happily stayed longer if plans permitted. The Old Manse is a wonderful property in a lovely setting, our room was very comfy, spotlessly clean and the decor was charming. Beale and Linda couldn’t do enough for us and I don’t think we could really have asked for more.
The Barn at The Old Manse is the perfect self-catering base for exploring the Highlands. It is comfortable, beautifully decorated, clean, cosy, well-equipped, private, and surrounded by stunning countryside. There is wildlife quite literally on the doorstep - from the lounge windows we spotted deer, hare, woodpeckers, yellowhammers, finches, and bank voles (very entertaining to watch). The accommodation is on safe and beautiful walking and running routes, so although you do need a car to explore the wider area, you can choose to spend some time exploring on foot. The owners, Neale and Linda, put together an extremely useful welcome pack, including a map of the whole NC500 route, which we used to cover pretty much the entire road (no journey longer than 2 hours; most within 1.5). Neale and Linda have thought of everything to make the stay at The Barn as comfortable, enjoyable and peaceful as possible. They also made sure that the property was deep cleaned before and after our visit - excellent attention to detail during the difficult public health situation. Thanks for a wonderful holiday - we really hope to return one day…
This is our second stay and it was perfect once again. Neale and Linda are wonderful hosts and the accommodation is lovely. Breakfast is delicious and plentiful and Linda is a great cook and baker. They certainly deserve 5/5.
From the moment we arrived I felt happy. Linda and Neale made us feel at home and comfortable. They made us a tea on our arrival and we sat and chatted. The house is lovely. The rooms were very comfortable and stocked with tea and fresh milk. Breakfast was delicious. Fresh fruit, bread, homemade cakes, jam and a full breakfast for those who desired it. I am thinking about our next visit already.
