We have been driving the North Coast 500 through the Highlands. This hotel is a great first night stopping place. Very near the Ewe Gardens. Relax in this quaint, somewhat dated hotel. We had a lovely family room, which I booked for the extra space. We had a nice view of the water. They do have a restaurant for dinner...
