Hello, are children allowed to stay here? We have a 2yr old. Thank you.
To my knowledge, children are accepted at the hotel. They do have family rooms and the hospitality is first class. Enjoy!

Hello Ashley, with regards to your question about the timings for High Tea - you need to book 24hrs in advance as everything is made to order and therefore incredibly fresh but they will serve it any time between 3-5.30. I have experienced their wonderful cream tea and highly recommend a glass or three of Prosecco with it!! If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

how do one pronounce Tigh na Sgiath?
Hello all. I was curious about how to pronounce Tigh na Sgiath and asked Iain, the owner. This is what he said and how he suggested I remember it. 'Tigh is like 'tie that you wear with a shirt and jacket' na is just as it is written, and sgiath is like ' a downhill skier' Tigh na Sgiath - or Tie na skier Hope that helps!

"Cromdale suite is a good size if you have a child with you."
"All the rooms and public spaces are gorgeous"
"Some of the rooms are not ensuite, but have adjoining bathrooms."
"Choose the en suite if you can afford it. We didn't, but had no problem with the private bathroom across the hall"
"First floor rooms are probably the best."
