The negative reviews about this hotel are in relation to the fact that it closes during the day and doesn’t open until 5pm. This is well advertised and is not such a surprise bearing in mind it’s isolated location. Ignore those poor reviews and the hotel should quite fairly deserve a higher rating. In reality it offers a substantial dinner (the beef pie and Kevin’s whisky cheesecake are well worth trying!), comfortable accommodation and a hearty breakfast topped up by typical Scottish hospitality. Plus it’s got a lovely view over Loch Shin. However, wet & sweaty cyclists who turn up mid-afternoon without notice are probably advised to pass on by.

Thank you for your honest and candid and valid review as a patron who has obviously stayed with us in recent times. Appears our only negative reviews come from passers by (and not residents) frustrations at not gaining entry when we are closed, as you correctly state our isolated location means opening during the day is not a viable option, with an average of less than a handful of passers-by dropping in a month.

best regards

Kevin

I stayed 4 nights in the overscaig house hotel and do highly recommand it. I was touring the north on motorbike. The overscaig house is a perfect location to stay in the north west. Easy acces to east and west coast and the highlands. Kevin was very caring, the food was perfect. Nothing at all to complain about. Will be back for sure. Kind regards to Kevin&wife. Frank

I have friends who live just up the road from this hotel, and most recently, it was not practical for me to stay with them so I booked into the Overscaig Hotel. Booking in was easy, and Kevin showed me around the hotel before leaving me to unpack in my room. The room was very clean, with a lovely en-suite. The bar was well-stocked and cosy, and while I only ate breakfast here, the dinners coming out of the kitchen looked amazing. I was told by other guests that the meals tasted as good as they looked - apparently the cheesecake was a particular hit!
The breakfasts were great; well cooked, with quality ingredients and plenty of it.
Thanks for making me feel very welcome, Kevin and Karen. I had a very comfortable stay. Good luck with the rest of the season!

This hotel is well situated if you want to visit the West coast, North Coast and East Coast of the Highlands. The weather in the Highlands is rather unpredictable. However, whether or not you have enjoyed the clearest of skies or skidded through the wettest of days one thing is predictable - the excellent, warm hearty food served from 5pm - 8pm at Overscaig's bar. The steak pie is fantastic, followed by the Whisky Cheesecake. This small hotel is cosy and feels like a bit of a home from home. Open to non-residents from 5pm - 8pm its bar has a friendly atmosphere and you never know who you'll have a chat with...locals, global travelers...etc. This was our second stay here and, although it has changed ownership in the last six months, it was as good as ever and we look forward to coming back.

Wonderful place to stay for a relaxing, genuinely get away from it all experience.
Superb location on the Loch, very comfortable rooms and excellent food - the whiskey cheese cake is to die for. And you might be surprised which whiskey Kevin uses...
As an added bonus we saw wild deer from the dining room and encountered no midges!
Really, a great place.
