Carnach House was a wonderful, cosy, and comfortable place to stay. My mother and I spent just one night whilst driving through the Highlands and were impressed with everything. From the beautiful grounds to the impeccable furnishings and delicious breakfast, the hosts have attended to every detail and are friendly and welcoming with helpful suggestions for local restaurants and attractions....

Carnach House is a really attractive place to stay,spotlessly clean and with traditional furnishings that match the house perfectly. The house is surrounded by extensive gardens and our room at the front looked over fields to the sea. Breakfast was superb with fresh berries and a perfectly cooked Scottish breakfast. Ian and Hilary are most friendly and so helpful, offering...

Carnach House is a rare gem. We were lucky enough to stay 3 lovely days here. It is just outside of Nairn in a wooded area. Not too far from Inverness. Very quiet and peaceful. Very close to Culloden Battlefield, Clava Cairns, Brodie Castle and Cawdor Castle. Hilary and Ian are wonderful and welcoming hosts. Nothing was too much for...

We stayed here for one night on a Scottish tour. It was exceptionally good. The owner was friendly and efficient, the house stunning. I can't recommend the place highly enough - from the minute we stepped through the door until we left the next day, filled with an excellent, very large, breakfast! Fantastic

Had a wonderful time at this B&B. Has spoilt us for any other hotel or B&B. Unbelievably immaculate. Very comfortable. Made to feel very welcome by the owners and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast lovely, with great choice and quality. Looking forward to our next visit soon.

A helpful message in advance of my visit (from and via the owner) allowed me to find the property relatively easily. Very conveniently located just off the main Inverness/Nairn road. Not so close as to be noisy, though my room was at the back of the property and overlooking pleasant lawned areas. Taking off my shoes and feeling the deep...
