So glad you ate with us and chuffed you enjoyed things. The oven-roasted salmon with chorizo is indeed pretty good and the Bakewell Tart's a bit fab (had some myself later on). Hope to see you again. M&M, The Hightae Inn More

I go regularly and have never been disappointed. Very pleasant atmosphere. Small European menu. Food always well cooked.Service occasionally a little slow but only if very busy. The host is always considerate. Good selection of Scotch. Excellent puddings. Easy parking. Quaint village.

Marc took very good care of us for our first dinner in Scotland. The food was expertly prepared and served. Everything, the salmon appetizer, chicken pie and bass were absolutely delicious. Could not have been better and fun to chat with Marc during the meal. Small intimate place. Don't miss stopping in if you are in the area. Loved the... More

Lovely little place, great food, local produce, cooked well. Small menu but excellent choice and not a chip in sight! Mark the owner is lovely and made us feel very welcome. Good choice of soft drinks and the Merlot was gorgeous. Very small so make sure you book.

Who'd have thought that such an exceptional little restaurant could be found in such a tiny little village. If the owner had told me that Gordon Ramsey or Nigella Lawson was paying a special visit and was working away in the kitchen, I would have believed him as the food was absolutely amazing (in fact, it was the wife of...
