This establishment was by far the best place I stayed during my "premium" walking tour and very worthy of the term "premium". I arrived here at the end of a very long day. Not long after starting my hike in the morning, I fell through the trail into the peat bog. Left leg into the bog, up to my hip....

A group of four of us arrived exhausted after a long walk and were greeted and shown to our rooms which were without a doubt the best I have ever experienced. The owners are very obliging and welcoming. An excellent breakfast and a packed lunch of lamb and smoked salmon plus a quiche specially made for us. This accomodation cannot...

Thank you for your kind comments and we were pleased to read that the picnic lunch went down well and that it was sufficient to get you through the 17 mile hike to your next destination.

My partner and I booked a meal at Culdearn House on 15 May 2014. The food was fabulous and excellent value for money, certainly 5*. Following the meal everyone, including the owners Sonia and William, retired to the beautiful sitting room for an after dinner drink. My partner totally surprises me and proposes. After the complete shock and positive reply,...

Unfortunately I was taken ill just before visiting Culdearn House and so do not visit it. My wife phoned to cancel our booking and she was taken aback by the rudeness of the owner who ranted and decidedly told her off for cancelling at the last minute. How could we know that I was going to be ill? There was...

We had been holding a superior double room for this couple for 7 months, since November 2013. They booked for dinner, bed and breakfast. In the terms and conditions which were sent to the guests, it states that, in the event of cancellation, we may, in high season, charge the full amount. On the morning of their arrival (Bank Holiday...

I can only reprint what I have now read in precious reviews. "The proprietrix is rather cool and somewhat aloof. The proprietor on the other hand is very affable, and his nonchalant almost “happy go lucky” manner is a foil for the Mistress of the House. There are quite a lot of rules and regulations at Culdearn." We did not...

I want to start by saying we are hotel people and foodies. We don't normally stay in B & B's. When we arrived we carried in our own luggage and were- I will admit it a little worried at the fact there were only 7 rooms (we had 3) and very little help. We went down for dinner and it...

Thank you for taking the time to put your thoughts on this site. It was unfortunate that the day you arrived the owner had had a fall a few days earlier and was disabled with many broken ribs so unable to carry you cases. However, help was offered but was declined. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay...

Booked a night here en route through the Highlands upon the advice of another hotel which was fully booked - had previously skipped past the hotel after reading the less positive reviews here which complained that the hostess isn't welcoming.

We had a fantastic stay at Culdearn House of Hogmanay. In truth it is some where between a guest house and a 'proper' hotel but to be honest we liked it all the more for that. We spend a lot of time travelling in impersonal business hotels and it is lovely to be in a 'home from home' type of...
