We stayed at Cawdor House for two nights during a whirlwind tour of Scotland. Andy and Anika could not have been better hosts! Our room, the garden, was just outside the main house. It was spacious, cozy and warm on some pretty cool nights. After leaving a very loud hotel in Edinburgh, we were very pleased to have a quiet... More

This 8 room B&B in Nairn was a great find. The owners are hosts Anika and Andy. Anika was until February 2016 general manager for a large hotel in Munich whilst her husband Andy is a professional photographer. Well worth a visit if you are visiting that part of Scotland.

Just spent two nights at Cawdor House with my husband and a friend. We would normally stay at our daughters when visiting Nairn but decided to treat ourselves this time to a B&B .

Wonderful hosts, wonderful food, beautiful, enormous rooms. Andy and Anika, who have only been in the house for 3 months, really took our visit to another level. They are charming, chatty and ready to give advice on any daytrips you may want to make. The rooms are very spacious, clean and comfortable.

Visited with my wife for our anniversary. We had a nice bright room, with new windows, and a modern bathroom with good toiletries. Attentive service and excellent tasty breakfasts. The Classroom bistro 50 metres away served excellent meals in the evening.
