One contributor wrote that her visit...

Breakfast was great, offering a good selection of food. Alasdair was unfazed by my Vegan diet and happily made my morning porridge with oat...

We spent one night at Sydney House on the way back from completing the North Coast 500. Our room was comfortable, clean and warm, and we enjoyed a good night's sleep and a delicious breakfast the following morning. Alasdair was a perfect host and we were grateful for his suggestions for places to visit near Inverness. Overall, a great place...
