This is a really good bed and breakfast in a beautiful setting . Our room was very comfortable and spacious and we also could have relaxed in the living room had we wanted to . Breakfast was very good indeed and Denise and David were excellent and friendly hosts .

The Lockets are welcoming and friendly hosts; house is in a lovely setting; superbly comfortable sitting/bedroom. Breakfast was excellent, and we watched a Woodpecker feeding from the bird table. Unreserved recommendation.

We had one night here and it was first class. A wonderful welcome from Denise and David with tea on arrival. Excellent breakfast with good variety. Denise had forgotten to warn us that they did not take credit cards but she trusted us to pay when we returned home.

We only had one night here, but would love to go back. The house is beautiful as are the gardens, with fantastic views. It is in a good location to get around the area. The breakfast was one of the best we have had, wonderful smoked salmon. Denise and David were excellent and knowledgable hosts. A first class stay

I had the privilege of staying with the hosts David and Denise for a weekend! This house is set back in the beautiful hills of Dingwall, with the foot hills of the Scottish Highlands literally at the breakfast table......... An absolute must for those who cherish impeccable rooms with beautiful taste and surroundings. A B&B with loads of the personal...

We stayed here at the end of June and the weather was glorious. This meant that we could sit outside on the little terrace and admire the beautiful garden. The beds were so comfortable and as other travellers have said, everything was spotless. We were very loth to leave next morning. I would recommend Knockbain House very highly indeed.

Im a bit of a fuss pot when it comes to staying away from home. Very rarely does something meet my expectations, but our stay at Knockbain House met and exceeded them. From the start there was the beautiful approach up the drive way, then a warm welcome from David. Our twin room was a delight, warm clean and beautifully...

Travelling around the country you get a feel for the good places to stay. Usually the better establishments have a feature that makes them stand out; like good food, warm hospitality, big TV, excellent activities or just a comfy bed in a blissfully quiet room. It is however unique to find proprietors who excel in all areas of the art...

This was our second stay at Knockbain House and loved it just as much as the first! We stayed in the twin-bedded room which has its own private bathroom opposite. (must mention the Ginseng bodywash by the way! Lovely). Thoughtful touches everywhere (eg china teapot for a brew), extremely comfortable beds and crisp linens, flat screen tv, EXCELLENT broadband, a...
