Very Good8.0
Lovely guesthouse and owners.

Small town Big History
Interesting interior decorating. Salmon lures for an inside wall decoration. Definitely innovative structurally for an established building. An old bishops residence but a typical London bed and breakfast. One block from downtown Tain and bordering the Tesco grocery store. This perhaps I enjoyed the most. Partial view of the water and it flows in and out. Did not have time to run out into it though. Is this the area that goes out twenty miles on every tide change? Agricultural innovations in the 15th century made the area a wealthy part of Scotland. Oh, two long blocks from the train station but go through the Tesco parking lot to avoid the climb. Take stairs at side of lot and the b and b is to the right.

Nice Stay
This is a very nice bed and breakfast. It is a distance from Inverness, probably a 40 minute drive and a little hard to find. You have to follow the signs for Wick out of Inverness. The hotel was a block off of the town center but easy walking distance. Very quiet and nice breakfast,

Highly Recommended!
Our two nights spent here were quite comfortable and breakfast was delicious. The B&B is conveniently located on a quiet side street, but it's just a short walk to downtown Tain and nearby restaurants. There is plenty of parking in a private lot beside the house. We utilized the laundry service; leaving our clothes to be washed in our room in the morning and having them delivered back to us all clean that evening. We would highly recommend this B&B.
