We stayed at The Lime Tree during a two day tour through the Highlands and Loch Ness. The old house has been beautifully maintained and the hotel room we were in was beautifully appointed. The furnishings, from the four post bed to writing desk to the claw footed tub perfectly suited the exterior of the building. Staff were very friendly,...

Had a lovely stay here on our way up to Skye and sadly made the wrong choice of eating outside of the hotel- big mistake! Evening menu looked amazing and the next morning breakfast was wonderful ! Room was really good as well, although there was some noise from the road traffic at the side of the hotel... This was...

Hubby booked here for a night away for my birthday & we weren't disappointed by the room, it was gorgeous, as was the food, but the bar didn't have jack Daniels! It's a little pricey but worth it for a treat. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a lovely relaxing stay. Staff were friendly too.

I booked this at short notice. The room was really comfortable and good value. The house is beautiful and well - positioned. I chose it because of the restaurant, which turned out to be closed, without any notice or any information on the website. The member of staff who told me was completely unapologetic and did not recommend any alternatives.

Traditional Scottish manse with cozy rooms. The staff was very friendly and the fire was lit in the front room which was a nice touch. We stayed in room 2 which has a 4 poster bed and is in the front of the property that overlooks the loch. We had a delicious dinner in the restaurant. The quality of the...

Thoroughly enjoyed my visit to this highly rated restaurant for dinner. A limited but well thoughtout menu, with food well prepared, plated to inspire and tasteful. To find a restaurant of this quality was unexpected and the ratings earned were well deserved. Hhighly recommended.
