Beautiful Kiltearn House
We had a very nice stay here. Ed was an excellent host and Nelis an excellent cook. Kiltearn is a beautiful old house with large rooms. Our room faced out onto Cromarty Firth.There is a lovely walking path past the ruins of a church out onto the beach. All in all a terrific place to stay.

A Warm And Wonderful Place To Relax.
My wife and I visited Kiltearn during our honeymoon. We were immediately struck by the beauty of the house and the warm welcome we received from Ed and Nel, the owners. Our room was spacious, clean, and well-appointed, the house was laid out with guest convenience in mind, and the included breakfast was enormous and delicious.

But the best part of our stay was Ed and Nel. They gave us restaurant and touring recommendations, they came to pick us up from the pub, they even allowed us to throw some of our laundry in with the house's laundry (necessary after 2 weeks of traveling)! We were absolutely blown away by their hospitality and warmth. Our stay at Kiltearn was a highlight of our honeymoon.

I would definitely stay at Kiltearn House again, and I will definitely recommend it to anybody I know traveling in the area.

Beautiful location for this Guest House which has about 6 rooms. We were greeted warmly on arrival by the owners Ed and Nell. Rooms were large and clean, with ensuite shower room. We had a view over Chromarty Firth. Excellent breakfast with lots of choice. Highly recommended.

'kiltearn House'
As this was my first visit to Kiltearn House I wasn't sure what to expect. I could not have been happier. First the location is a dream, the house, an old manse, is beautiful and tastefully cared for, and as for the greeting it was faultless. As usual I arrived after hours on a motorcycle and was offered all the help I could have wanted. The room had tastefully modern furniture and fittings and I really wanted for nothing. After freshening up I was given a lift into town for my dinner and offered a lift back when I was ready! Needless to say the breakfast was a treat and taken in the conservatory overlooking the garden. Very nice. Overall very comfortable and friendly with exceptional service.

Memorable Stay
We used Kiltearn House as a stopover for a short business trip to this highlands area.We really loved the house and would like to live there ourselves! The location is beautiful and peaceful with views across the water and surrounding countryside, ensuring a good night's sleep. The bed and pillows are good quality, rooms are tastefully decorated and all areas are immaculate. The hosts Ed and Nel will provide evening meals on request and we enjoyed our well cooked and presented meal. There is a very nice guest lounge with quality magazines where we relaxed with coffee and fine whisky from the local distillery. Ed and Nel are attentive and friendly but not obtrusive. Breakfast is taken in the conservatory where the lovely views can be admired. The house is surrounded by neat lawns with some seats. The location is good for interesting walks. I think this place would be especially lovely in summer, but delightful in all seasons. We would certainly return to Kiltearn House.

Thoroughly enjoyed our time in Kiltearn House, Ed and Nel made us feel very welcome and gave very good advise on where to go and what to do. Extremely helpful where it came to organising taxi's for the wedding we had to attend and airport runs. Rooms very clean and comfortable and in good decorative order.

The scenery is stunning and we were very lucky to have sunny warm weather!

Would recommend a stay here

A Real Find
My wife and I had a lovely stay. A beautiful and peaceful location. The hotel is comfortable and homely and our host and hostess were extremely welcoming. Wish we didn't have to rush off to catch the Hamnavoe ferry because we would have enjoyed a more leisurely breakfast (delicious) in the conservatory! We would highly recommend the Kiltearn House.

We found a very nice place in a beautifull garden just at the border of the water. The room was very nice. After a warm welcome, we enjoyed a excellent dinner.

This is definitely one of the most beautifull places we have visited in Scotland.

This was our first visit to Kiltearn House, and from the start we were made to feel so welcome by Ed and Nel. Our room, the Superking was a real treat to be in.The decor was lovely, and small touches like fresh flowers just made all the difference. We ate in on both of our evenings at Kiltearn, and Nel's cooking was just superb. A real treat! Breakfast was just as impressive, and our mouths still water just thinking about the food! After our all too short two day stay, we felt we had become part of the family. we can't wait to return!

Expectations Surpassed!
My husband and I wanted a few days away from it all and needed some relaxing time to ourselves. The website looked promising and our expections were certainly surpassed. Nell and Ed are lovely people and great hosts. Nell's cooking is first class. We booked only for the first night, but dined in for three out of the four nights we stayed. There are plenty of places to visit, so would definitely recommend staying here to anyone visiting that area.
