This is a marvellous B&B if you're looking for comfort, peace & tranquility. Angus & Elizabeth are very welcoming hosts. The room was very comfortable & the house has a wonderful walled garden to relax in. We had a lovely couple of days unwinding & relaxing.
The setting for this B&B is great. Breakfast is very limited with either corn flakes, muesli or porridge to start followed by poached eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms and venison sausages. This is fine for a short stay but three days was a bit much when the 'standard' in Scotland is so high. Perhaps just a take on the hosts 'beliefs' but perhaps worth a consideration when advertising. Then again from their perspective perhaps not. That was the only negative and the accommodation was super for us and would certainly recommend with the waiver above!
So glad we stayed 2 nights at Scourie Lodge. It looked beautiful in the photos and it didn't disappoint. The Lodge was originally built as a hunting lodge for the Duke of Sutherland, and I got a kick out of knowing that Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother had stayed here, in the same place as I was staying! I love that kind of history. But the really special thing, and which makes this stand out from other B and B's, is the wonderful walled garden, lovingly tended by Angus, and full of a mix of ancient trees and plants from New Zealand, as well as cottage garden favourites. It all creates a truly magical place - sheltered, welcoming, heavenly if you like gardens or plants. Plus they have an ancient woodland behind, which has its own wild magic when you walk through it. All this combined with a very comfortable bed, excellent breakfasts (that home-made spelt bread is truly delicious), and Angus and Elizabeth's attention to detail, emphasis on being as eco-friendly and sustainable as possible, and their very warm welcome, makes this a very special place indeed. We will be back, I'm sure, only this time for longer!…
The setting for this B&B is great. Unfortunately it is a bit dated in it’s decor, e.g. peach coloured bathroom suite. The duvet was synthetic and not very warm. Even with an extra blanket we were still cold. There was only an electric shower in the bathroom which was not too good. Breakfast is very limited with either corn flakes, muesli or porridge to start followed by poached eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms and venison sausages. We paid £150 per night for our room, however, based upon other hotels and B&B’ s we have stayed in £110 would be a fairer price.
We stayed here as a welcome break from backpacking. Oh what a contrast, this was luxury... The house is beautiful, the rooms large and very clean,comfy and nice to be in.Angus and Elizabeth were warm and friendly hosts, nothing was too much trouble. Their walled garden has to be seen to be believed, absolutely lovely, such a surprise so far north. Really enjoyed our too short stay, there's plenty to see locally so make it at least a two night stay to make the most of a wonderful B&B
