We had a great stay at Golf View. The B&B is wonderful and it was so nice to be able to walk into town for dinner. Beautiful views and it is easy to drive to other places in the Highlands.We were given great recommendations for dinner and drinks. Tain is a lovely town.

The Golf View House offers lovely views over their impeccable lawn of farmlands and a golf course right to the waters of Dornoch Firth.

If carlsberg did b&b, it wouldn't be as good as this! Beautiful house, fantastic location and surroundings, easy walk to centre of Tain. The room is great, super decor and finish. Bed very comfortable, just what i need. And proprietors are so good at what they do.

Stayed for two nights after spotting signs on driving past. What an excellent decision. A large stone built house in its own grounds with ample parking at the end of a long drive. Magnificent views at the back over fields below out to the sea. Room 4 was a large well furnished room with all facilities. The breakfast was excellent,... More

Booked in for 2 nights, there have been occasions in the past when we have made the decision to move on after just one night but not here. The house is beautiful, nicely restored and impeccably clean. The standards are high, from the accommodation to the food - a "killer" breakfast, thank God I was'nt golfing on the Sunday morning...

Without a doubt a very exceptional place to stay. The building itself is a superb stone manse. The attention to detail and wonderful welcome from hosts Sue and Bill is second to none. The rooms are spacious and well decorated, breakfast was delicious and the view magnificent. Would highly recommend to anyone.
