We had a fantastic stay at The Old Drynie House, just west of Inverness. The grounds are beautiful, the home is cozy, the bedroom and bathroom was spacious (we were in the Secret Garden Double Room) and the bed comfortable.
Our bathroom had a jetted tub witch helps deal with aches and pains from a day of hiking and a head cold. Our room was not in the main house but in an annex immediately adjacent and included a small common room shared with another suite. The common room includes laundry machines, a dishwasher if you care to bring in food (no cooking on site) and a comfortable dining table. Additionally there is a game room with a snooker table, darts and table soccer- football.
With all that the grounds have to offer, and they offer a lot, the standout here are the hosts, Deirdre and Alasdair. They are warm, welcoming and ready to cater to your needs. The Breakfast is fantastic. Fresh fruits from the garden and homemade jams adorn the well appointed dining room. Alasdair will take your order the day before and have it ready at your prearranged time. I chose the mushroom and tomato omelette and it was fantastic. A starter of his “magic porridge” really helped me deal with my head cold.
My only regret about Old Drynie House is that I did not plan to stay a few more days as a base for our north-west highlands touring. I’m confident we will return to continue our Scotland adventures
