Both nights that we stayed at Hightae Inn we enjoyed excellent dinners in the comfortable dining room. The food was local, varied, and well presented. We noticed that many local people came in to dine, as well!

We had a divine meal here on our way south from Edinburgh. Every dish was delicious and the marmalade bread and butter pudding was the perfect ending to a fantastic dinner. Highly recommend the restaurant!!!

Many thanks for eating with us and so glad you enjoyed our wee place. There are a number of roads into the village and you (or your satnav) may have unfortunately picked a narrow one. It'd be great to see you again - next time...More

Geoff - we're DG11 1JS. Care if using satnav though, as it'll lead you along some pretty wretched wee lanes. Best to follow directions on our website. Cheers M&M, The Hightae Inn.

A great little Restaurant with rooms open for Evening Suppers 5 nights a week (closed Mondays & Tuesdays) serving locally sourced home cooked food to order in our cosy lounge bar. As we only have a limited number of covers and the table is yours for the night, booking really is essential.
