Dog Friendly B&B, Loch Ness. +44(0) 1320 351277
We had a fantastic stay here recently, nothing was too much for Lindsey and Manda and their enthusiasm about the area along with their advice made our trip all the better. This was not like staying in a B&B but like visiting long lost friends. Can’t recommend it enough (oh and a shot of whiskey in a hot chocolate is without doubt a revelation). – Lisa and Andrew, Newcastle, UK

One of the most fantastic B&B i ever stayed in. Lindsey & Manda are very welcoming and lovely girls they made us feel at home and comfortable. The room was comfortable well kept, And what a breakfast it set us up for the days fishing. I highly recomend Carik Na Dav B&B for anyone traveling to Invermoriston, this B&B is situated just across the street from the river Moriston so for any anglers its a must. Thanks again for a wornderful experience cant wait to visit again. – Gary & Mark, Craigavon, Ireland

I stayed at this B & B on 11th December 2013 as a lone traveller walking the The Great Glen Way. The sisters who own and run the business – Manda and Lindsey could not have been more welcoming and made my all too brief stay feel like home from home. Both of the girls are charming as are the their 3 “boys” – 3 lovable West Highland Terriers.  Their home is packed with interesting furniture and artefacts enhancing the feeling of a very personal businessSuperbly located on the Great Glen Way and just a stones throw from a great pub and restaurant – The Glenmoriston Arms.  The girls love their wildlife and can share their photos of the great array that come into their grounds to feed – inc Red Squirrels and Pine MartinsThe breakfast and packed lunch were fresh and prepared with a personal touch.  I cannot recommend a stay here enough. – David, Beaconsfield, UK

Lindsey and Manda are very welcoming and it was very relaxing to stay here. In addition they are very well informed and offer a lot of information about the Loch Ness area. The rooms are comfortable and breakfast hearty. Try a take- out lunch – excellent value and tasty. Thank you for a pleasant stay. – Simon, Melbourne, Australia

From the moment my boyfriend and I stepped through the door, we felt welcome. I had a phone interview arranged that day and they kindly let me use their telephone, in case my mobile signal cut out. They were both exceptionally friendly and made us feel at home.The room was warm and cosy and the breakfast was delicious! It kept me going on our trek around Loch Ness. I would most definitely visit again if I am back in Invermoriston! – Rachel, Guildford
.
.
I arrived here having caught a bus in Fort Augustus, as my legs had given out on Day 3 of the Great Glen Way – my husband continued the walk to Invermoriston. I was cold and wet, and feeling low as I’d had to ‘give up’, and I dragged myself up the hill to Craik na Dav praying there would be someone in as I was early. What a welcome – I was ushered in with a laugh and a joke, wet things taken to dry, and invited to sit with Lindsey and Manda in their lounge. Tea and homemade fruit cake and shortbread appeared as if by magic, and I soon cheered up! These two sisters couldn’t do enough for us, all with a great sense of humour and making you feel part of the family straightaway. The twin room was lovely, more homemade shortbread, and a special extra of a ‘wee dram’ of whisky, which my husband enoyed later! Lovely bathroom with power shower, everything looked new and well-cared for. Other guests, including my husband when he arrived, all got the same treatment and care. However, note that it is a dog-friendly establishment, so although the hosts kept their dogs separately, other guests may bring their pets who will be allowed in the shared rooms. Not a problem for us as there were only two little dachshunds there when we were there who were no trouble. Breakfast was at a big shared table, again lots of choice nicely cooked and presented, home made preserves and cooking by Lindsey with service with a smile from Manda. A bonus was the appearance of a red squirrel in the back garden! We went on our way feeling like we had stayed with friends – we also ordered 2 packed lunches which contained an unexpected extra chocolate bar – thank you! Can’t recommend this place enough – they deserve to be full all the time! Thank you both very very much! – Teford, UK

Truly overwhelmed by the warmth and friendliness given by Lindsey and Amanda. Angus, Fraiser and Skye are super duper cute too! You’ll definitely love them if you’re a dog lover. Breakfast is sumptuous too! I would recommend the kippers too. Delicious! Would highly recommend this place and will definitely visit the place again if given the chance. 🙂 – Kenny, China
.
.
Such a great place to stay! They are super pet friendly. Very helpful with info on anything you might want to do in the area. Felt more like staying with friends than a B&B. Would recommend to anyone going to this area.  Sheilena &  Barry, Palestine, Texas,US

What can I say that has not been said already that it was so friendly and a warm welcome for us and our two Dachshunds Mia and Coco they were made as welcome as we were. They even got a brand new dog poo bin with a very nice sticker on it. The room was clean and very good the wee dram was very nice and the dogs enjoyed the biscuits that were left for them. The breakfast was spot on and the wildlife we could see out of the window was out of this world. The red squirrels were the first we had seen in the wild GREAT. We enjoyed our stay in your beautiful home and will be returning next year. – Ian, Ripon, UK

As everyone else that has ever stayed at Craik Na Dav can attest I have no doubt, Lindsey and Manda have mastered the very secret to running a B&B from top to bottom. From the moment we walked in, we felt like family for a visit. Their happiness in this extraordinary corner of the Highlands exudes itself exponentially and we felt privileged to share in their joy, even if for such a short while. Everything that you will want during your stay is accounted for, from the tea and biscuits upon arrival to a wee dram at bedtime. In between, you are treated as a favourite relative in for a much-needed visit, catching up over an evening drink or a wonderfully cooked breakfast. They’ll even pack up the best lunch you could ask for if you are, as we were, tackling the Great Glen Way. Having traveled far and wide all over Scotland, I can say with certainty that this is the best B&B you will find on the mainland. Westies Angus, Frazer, and Skye, will load you up with lots of love, too. A not-too-be-missed B&B in one of the Highland’s best areas.  Mike, Bloomington, Indiana, USA

This is an absolutely great B and B, so friendly, we were made to feel so welcome including Maggie our dog. Maggie played with their dogs toys all evening and had biscuits left out for her in our room, We had whiskey and delicious homemade shortbread in the room for us.  Lovely room, really clean and comfortable, breakfast was fab.  Beautiful part of the world with great walks.  Thanks for a great stay. – Laura, Edinburgh, UK
.
.
Everybody before has already said everything I would like to say, it really is a lovely place to stay and is genuinely pet friendly. We had a brilliant stay and so did our dog. We all enjoyed the biscuits and the delicious homemade cake and the pots of tea or coffee that were offered. – Jean, Broughton, UK
.
.
Very friendly and helpful ladies run this B&B with 3 lovely dogs. The room was very well equipped, clean and comfy, breakfast was excellent! Good location. We had a mountain view room, it was spectacular. Could not ask for a better B&B! Thank you 🙂 – London
.
.
Of our 6 day trip to Scotland this place is and probably will be – beside the beautiful landscape! – the brightest memory. We stayed here while walking the Great Glen Way (The B&B is perfectly situated right next to it!). Being exhausted from the miles we had left behind us we very much enjoyed the sisters’ warm welcome, the tea, the homemade shortbread biscuits and fruitcake, the chat and the three playful dogs. The hosts grudged no pain. They even had a spa bath and massage-like machine for our sore feet (Thanks again for that!)! The room was clean and comfortable. We wished we could have stayed longer! – Henrike & Dorothee, Duesseldorf, Germany
.
.
We wish that our stay could have been longer than two days because we were given the warmest of welcomes into a real home from home.On arrival we were greeted with tea and cake. Rooms were spotlessly clean and comfortable and our hosts had thought of everything,right down to the homemade shortbread biscuits on the tea tray. Our evening meal was had a short walk down the lane. We enjoyed watching the birds in the morning whilst sitting down to an excellent full breakfast and in the absence of our own dog it was great fun to play with theirs. – The Cooks, Cambridge, UK
.
.
If you’re looking for a B&B that is truly and utterly dog friendly, and where its hosts are truly and utterly wonderful people, then Craik Na Dav is the place to go. Everything to do with our short stay was absolutely flawless. Exceptionally clean, perfect food (locally sourced), perfect hosting, perfect… everything. We only wish that we stayed more than one night at Craik Na Dav. We will definitely, without a doubt, be returning in the future. And of course, the dog will be coming with us again. – Sunderland UK
.
.
We stayed here in June and had a wonderful stay for one night. The Inn at the bottom of the hill was an easy walk and the food was excellent. As Westie owners (and missing our own) we thoroughly enjoyed the dogs, who were friendly and playful. Breakfast was of our choice and time, my husband tried kippers for the first time, “interesting”, he said, as he picked out the bones. Never knew they had so many bones! If we ever return to Scotland we most certainly would stay there again! – Charles, Silverdale, Washington
.
.
We spent two nights here and wish it could have been much longer. The owners a incredibly welcoming, hospitable and friendly. So many guest houses claim to be dog friendly but none we have stayed at could come close to Craik Na Dav, our four legged companion was welcomed and fussed over as well as we were! On arrival we were treated to tea, coffee, cake and dog biscuites with some of Lindsey’s delicious home made shortbread biscuites in the room. Both Lindsey and Manda are full of local knowledge and tips that they shared with us to make the most of our all too short stay. We would most definately stay again!  – Dave Gill
.
.
Our stay here was lovely. The breakfast was exceptional and the warm, friendly service made our short stay especially memorable. Highly recommended. The rooms were impeccably clean and there were lots of nice small extra touches – like homemade short bread and tea, and a dram of whiskey, available in the room on arrival.  – Marcus

The best and most friendly B&B i have stayed at. Great room and shower, very comfortable. also enjoyed meeting the friendly westies. book here and you wont be disappointed. i had stayed after a long day cycling and it really was great to have such a warm welcome when i arrived.  NY, Inverness
.

A wonderfully welcoming place with two hosts that could not do enough to make your stay enjoyable and relaxed. They have great tips for places to visit and see around the Highlands area. We thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon tea and cake each day, along with the many chats with the hosts. Our three day stay went very quickly and was most enjoyable. The hosts had excellent local area knowledge and first rate recommendations on places to eat in the surrounding villages. We would highly recommend Craik Na Dav B&B to all.  Ian, Canberra, Australia.

We arrived at Craik na Dav after a long day touring and were very warmly welcomed by sisters Lindsey and Manda. The room was very nice and spotless clean, as well as the bathroom. The attention and hospitality was great.The breakfast next morning was delicious and we had a lot of fun meeting the Westies! Thanks for a wonderfull time! We definately recommend this B&B to others.  Ana, Portugal

Lindsay & Manda provide a wonderful welcome, delicious cake and a wealth of local knowledge. Their enthusiasm for the local wildlife is infectious and they run a very efficient and comfortable b&b. We would heartily recommend them.  Tim

Out of all the lovely and welcoming places we stayed in Scotland, Craig Na Dav stands out as the very best of the best. A lovely welcome, friendly help and support, comfy rooms, perfect attention to every detail, and a level of personal friendship and service that I have only received from close friends. And a wonderful calm feeling facilitated by the whole experience and our proximity to Nature. By observing nature we discover our own inner nature…..  Thankyou Lindsey and Manda, hope to return again. – Andrew, Ilminster

We’ve recently returned from 2 weeks of bed and breakfasting around Scotland, and this was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. It was the only place that we stayed for 3 nights, and we’re glad we did. Highlights of our stay were the welcome that we received when we arrived 2 hours early, the chats and many cups of tea and pieces of delicious cake and shortbread with Manda and Lindsey , getting to know the three fun Westies and the delicious breakfasts that we had. Some of the B & Bs that we stayed at were almost like hotels; here we really felt that we were being welcomed into their home, along with their other guests, and we soon all got to know one another around the breakfast table and in the sitting room. We received great suggestions on walks and restaurants, and were only sorry that we couldn’t follow all of them because my husband came down with a cold. We’ll have to come back!  Patricia, Canada

We were taking a couple of days to celebrate our “many year” wedding anniversary so only stayed one night , we have a wee dog “Poppy” so it is vital that we go to a place with people that have a genuine liking for animals. It was a delight to find like minded folk in Manda & Lindsey , they are so very warm and welcoming and have a lovely way of making you feel totally at home , it was a super time and really enhanced our anniversary celebration.  The house was delightful and had some really nice touches for the visitor .
Would we go again ? we most certainly would.  Ken, Nairn

We stayed at Craik Na Dav during out Great Glen Walk and it was a fabulous experience. We could not have asked for more from our stay, brilliant hosts, best Scottish breakfast, fantastic room and spotlessly clean throughout. As well as an amazing location. A MUST STOP! Best accommodation you could ask to stay in! We will definitely go back and soon I hope! We took our dog and the B&B is very Dog friendly and it was a pleasure to spend time here. You receive a very warm welcome on arrival and this is felt throughout your whole stay. Could not say enough good things about this place it is a real find!  Kate, Manchester
.

When looking for accommodation on the internet you are never sure what you will get until you arrive.  This is everything you want and more, from the moment you walk through the door until you leave it feels as if you are truly welcome, only wish that we could have stayed longer (rooms booked up).  Peace and quiet and only a very short distance from Loch Ness, we brought our dog Bella who made herself at home.  If you need a base close to the Loch – Look no further – this is all you need.  Mike, Celia and Bella
.
.
This is an excellent B&B to stay at. Manda and Lindsey are really welcoming and have a wealth of local knowledge (thanks for the wildlife tips!) the fruit cake you gave us on arrival was the best I’ve ever had and the dram of whisky in the room was a lovely touch. The rooms were also brilliantly clean. Breakfast was delicious and made even nicer by watching the garden birds eat theirs from the window. I can’t wait to go back to this homely B&B and thoroughly recommend you stay here 🙂 Laura & Marcus & Lindsay & Simon

My Name’s Libby and I’m a ruby-coloured Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. I stayed here with two humans at the end of September 2013, and this is my review of Craik Na Dav, which I’ve typed on my specially-adapted keyboard. I’ve stayed in a few dog-friendly B&B’s before, but I’ve never felt any incentive to learn how to type (or use the Internet, for that matter) until now. My stay here was truly, and utterly, excellent. I was treated like royalty (well, I am, kind of) from the second I walked in to the second I left. The humans that run this B&B, Lindsey and Manda, have a genuine affection toward dogs and I absolutely lapped up every little bit of attention (but naturally, tried not to show it too much). I was allowed on the furniture, and basically… was spoiled rotten. I spent best part of the evening in the living/dining room, sprawled out on the lovely wood flooring while the humans chatted over tea and cake. When I eventually dragged myself up off the floor and followed the humans into the bedroom, it was exceptionally clean and showed signs of excellent business management, from energy-efficient kettles to re-usable breakfast/packed lunch menus for guests to fill out the night before. It was easy for me to go out and stretch my legs during the night if I wanted to, but it was that nice inside I slept all the way through the night. The bed seemed very comfortable to lie in because the humans had a great night’s sleep; I’m more than happy curled up in the corner of the room though (I need my personal space). Lastly, the humans seemed to thoroughly enjoy their breakfast which was served at the time they specified the night before. It definitely looks as though we will be coming back to Craik Na Dav in the future, as this was the perfect B&B experience for all three of us. Thank you, Lindsey and Manda, for making this stay truly memorable. Lots of licks, Libby the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.  – Libby (and Joanne and Damian)

We had a wonderful 6 night stay at Craik Na Dav and can not praise it enough, from the warm welcome with tea and yummy shortbread and fruit cake to the cosy bed and helpful advise we were truly made to feel welcome in Lindsey and Manda’s home and within a short time felt like we were staying with friends. The rooms where warm clean and cosy with everything we needed (including fresh shortbread every day !) Lindsey and Manda were attentive and helpful throughout our stay kindly giving us a lovely bottle of wine for our anniversary and even offering popcorn when we borrowed a film to watch in our room .
We ordered a packed lunch on one of the days which was very nice and very good value for money and also the supper with lovely homemade soup.
The breakfast was excellent with a wide selection all freshly cooked complemented with yummy homemade jams fresh coffee and fruit, cereals and yogurts all of which was in plentiful supply. 
The bed and breakfast was situated in an ideal place for taking in the wonderful country side.
And finally ‘the boys’ three lovely friendly little dogs who you could meet if you wanted and who where kept at a discreet distance at meal times. All in all a wonderful stay in a wonderful place ! – Diane and Dave, Kent
.

The welcome at this B & B is the best we had during our 15 days in the highlands. Very clean room with cookies and whiskey, we felt right at home. Lindsay and Manda are extremely friendly, warm and caring, always there for us to give good advice. It was a great experience and we were a little sad to leave this place. A return your eyes closed! – Didier & Christine, Aubagne, France
.
.
We had already hired after a long hike a bed in this room and it was terrific. Not only that Manda and Lindsey are incredibly kind and communicative, they have also offered us cakes and cookies! Since they were not sure if we already reserved in the only restaurant of the place, had they gone are extra and have demanded. Breakfast the next morning was the icing. With homemade jam and traditional dishes they were all tastes. Thank you for the great time!

This B&B is a incredibly good option near Loch Ness. Lindsey and Manda are very friendly (what a great welcome) and helped us a lot, specially regarding what to do in the nearby, walkings, etc. The room was very nice, and included some homemade biscuits and whisky : ) We hope we will be able to come back again. – Toni, Madrid, Spain
.
.
We felt extremely pleased with Lindsey and Manda. The breakfast was plentiful, excellent and varied. Rarely have we met so friendly and attentive hosts who served us afternoon tea, homemade cake and whiskey (included in price). Interesting conversations with the other guests and the hosts at the communal breakfast table. – Erwin, Germany

What a wonderful B and B !! Lindsey and manda couldn’t do enough for you and location with Loch Ness a 5 minute walk away was just stunning . Hotel next door serves lovely food and finish your perfect night off with a wee dram that is awaiting you in the spacious and immaculate bedroom back at Craig na dav , Enjoyed a lovely Scottish breakfast in the lounge watching a red squirrel munching an apple just yards away !! Many thanks ladies for a wonderful stay will be back !! – Graham and Suzie, Hawick

lindsey and manda just couldnt do enough for us we were cycling john o groats to land end and we were soaked when we arrived but they dryed are cloths and informed the resturant we where running a bit late so we could eat if we are ever in scotland again would stay outstanding service. Des Emmett

What a wonderful spot.  Nestled amongst the natural surroundings with a plethora of wildlife on the front doorstep. You will be greeted with a smile and welcoming conversation and farewelled kindly after a great breakfast and wonderful sleep. Everything in between is perfection.  The shortbread was delicious too, so that was an added bonus.  Kiwito, Tokyo, Japan

Lindsey and Manda are fantastic. They are always ready to help and talk. Very friendly! The location is perfect if you want to go to Loch Ness or Glen Affric or Urquhart Castle. The breakfest is delicious. We loved it there. 🙂 – Mathieu, France

We are a Corsican family (with a Teenager and a Baby) and have travelled through Scotland for 2 weeks. We passed 2 nights very quiet in Craik Na Dav. It was one of our best stays.
Rooms are perfectly clean and comfortable. Situation of the B&B is ideal to visit LochNess and surroundings ( we went to Eilean Doonan Castle, Uquart Castle, Fort Augustus and Corrimony stone circle…). We had a very nice early morning running in forrest lanes situated just next to the B&B . 
Most of all Amanda and Lindsey are very kind and attentive hosts, passioned with wild life et with good advice; breakfast was one of our bests (and Lindsey’s jam is delicious!). we met Scottish trekkers and learned how to eat a real good scottish porridge! We are grateful for this good experience.
.
.
Had a one night stay at the Graik Na Dav and fully intend to go back. Lindsey and Manda are an exceptional team and i just wish all B&Bs in Scotland were like this, from the minute you walk into the house you are made to feel welcome with the offer(and after a long day walking it was music to our ears) of homemade cake and a cuppa, sat with them in their lounge enjoying the view and chatting, never have i felt more at home or welcome. Thanks Manda for the foot spa it was a godsend. Nothing was too much trouble and Lindsey happily booked a meal for us at the local hotel (which was delicious). Lovely comfortable room with hot shower and a dram of whisky plus more homemade shortbread and a very eco friendly kettle which we loved.
Next morning (after a slightly longer than planned breakfast( loved the mango juice) which certainly sets you up for the walk the next day and a super packed lunch that filled us up at lunch time) we set off with a promise that we would be back. 
This is a super dog friendly place and the girls three westies are just adorable. 
To Manda and Lindsey Thank you for providing such a wonderful service and doing it with such obvious enjoyment it was a pleasure to stay at your lovely home and we will certainly be back.
Hope we get to see the pine martin or red squirrel next time but think we will pass on the wild boar lol – “Nippy”, Wishaw

Craik Na Dav is one of the best B&Bs I’ve ever stayed. We received a real warm welcome from Lindsey, Manda and the three lovely doggies! It is in a good location close to Urquhart Castle and the environment is quiet and very relaxing. The room is clean and the bed is very comfy. Love the shortbread made by Lindsey and it’s a surprise to see there is whisky in the room! I would say the owners are very considerate and try their best to make the stay of every guest enjoyable. The breakfast was amazing and that was the only breakfast in our whole Scottish holiday that we felt full and didn’t need the toast! You can enjoy bird watching while you are having your breakfast, if you are lucky enough you can see more animals e.g. red squirrel. Thanks and we enjoyed our stay a lot. Highly recommended.  Crystal T, London

We stayed at the Craik Na Dav for one night. Everything about it was excellent! We showed-up a little early but Manda and Lindsey made us feel right at home. They invited us to watch the Wimbledon championship with them and we all cheered Andy Murray on to victory. They served tea and biscuits and their wonderful Westies “loved” on us as if we were family. They even got us to try haggis! The next day we had a very long walk so Manda packed us a delicious lunch to take with us. The room was comfortable and super clean! We will always remember our walk on the Great Glen Way and Craik Na Dav with warm memories. Rod & Pat, Ohio, USA

We stayed at the Craik Na Dav for one night while walking the Great Glen Way and our only regret was that we couldn’t stay longer. We were lucky in our accomodation throughout our walk – but nowhere else did we feel so much at home, so quickly and so thoroughly. The B & B is perfectly situated for GGW walkers – the way passes the end of the drive, and is only two minutes walk from the local hotel/restaurant and shops (including the “last clog shop before Skye” – which has some excellent leather products). Lindsey and Manda (and their three “boys”) made us welcome from the first moment – with a warm, friendly greeting and an immediate offer of tea/coffee and Lindsey’s homemade cake and shortbread. Over the coffee and cake, Lindsey and Manda gave us the run-down on local places to shop and eat, and even booked a table for us for that evening. (We would recommend the hotel – just in front of the Craik Na Dav – as a good place to eat. And the day we were there was blisteringly-hot so a couple of shandies in the bar were a treat. 
Our room was well-equipped, spacious and spotlessly-clean (and the mini-decanter containing a couple of drams was as welcome as the coffee and cake).
Breakfast the next morning was excellent (including the best kipper of the week) with a good range of choices, accompanied by close-up views of the local birds taking advantage of some of Manda’s many bird-feeders located around the garden (which also contains a relaxing garden-seat, a superb wooden sculpture, and a large and lovely rose-bush).
For walkers, this is a perfect B & B. For those travelling by road, there is plenty of off-street parking and the location makes it a good-base for exploring the local area.
We would highly recommend the Craik Na Dav, and look forward to staying there again.

Paddling the Caledonian Canal respectivly sightseeing the Great Glen we had only one night at Craik na dav, what a pity, because Lindsey, Manda nad “the boys” we´re one of our best hosts troughout three weeks in Scotland! What a warm welcome we received! We felt, that our host were really interessted in us and our Scottish experiences. And the rooms were cosy and had everything you need to recover from a hard tourist´s day, including a “wee dram”! Let´s not forget “the boys”: three absolutly cute Westis, who were allowed to meet the guests, if the guests asked for this favour. Finally the breakfast prepared us perfectly for the next day, and the flowers Lindsey and Manda organised for our 10th wedding anniversary lasted two weeks!
Thanks so very much! When we come back to the Great Glen, we´ll definitly come back to Craik na dav!
Many regards from too warm Germany (longing for some soothing Scottish rain)

It doesn’t get any better than this B & B the welcome i received warmed my heart and made me feel relaxed instantly, ,just what i needed after a hard days walking. I was then asked if i would like tea,cake and biscuits either in my room or in the lounge, i choose the lounge and had good laugh with my hosts Amanda and Lyndsey. The room i was given was spotless and had everything i needed for my stay including a small decanter of whisky, nice touch. At breakfast you wont go short fantastic, as much or as little as you wanted. The garden and outside seating area were excellent. I left soon after my breakfast refreshed and ready for another days hard walking on the GGW. My final words must be praise for my hosts who were the best people i have met at any B & B or Hotel. – Andrew, Kendal

.

We were walking the GGW as we stayed in this B&B. Luckily it is right on the GGW! The owners are so friendly… We felt very welcome and even at home. We could sit outside in their garden with plenty of little birds, they offered us some homemade biscuits which were really great, we could choose a dvd from their collection,… After our stay there, we were well rested and we managed to get to the next stage of the GGW! We would really recommend this place! – Bart and Nele

.

Thank you to Manda and Lindsey for the warm welcome. It was a pity not to stay more than 1 night. We hope to come back in future. I would have met the three Westies, I love them! Very nice place to stay, close to Loch Ness. – Stefano

We (the two Toms) stayed here in June 2013 while hiking the West Highland Way and Great Glen Way. . . Perfect location and two of the nicest people (Lindsey and Amanda) we meet on our trip. . . and just when you think it couldn’t get any better. . . breakfast!!! Thank you both very much for a wonderful time.  Tom & Tom, Washington USA

I am not going to repeat all the previous 5 star reviews with which Susan, Paddy the Labradoodle and I all concur wholeheartedly, but we would note that there is “dog tolerant” and “dog friendly” and this was definitely the latter. Amanda even found and dealt with a tick on Paddy which was all part of the service! Staying up until 1215 am drinking a rather nice drop of malt whisky,provided with the tea and coffee making facilities was well rewarded by the appearance of a pine marten. If we don’t stay here again it is only because the world is a very big place to get around in a lifetime but I hope we do return and and cannot recommend highly enough. Best wishes Susan, Ian and Paddy.

Just back tonight from 3 nights here. We were totally spoiled by Lindsey and Manda throughout our stay. The website is accurate and informative, the booking process efficient. We were greeted in a warm and relaxed way. The accommodation is lovely ,spotlessly clean and everything you need is at hand. Our rooms were ideal . The food was excellent – we enjoyed being able to select breakfast from the menu- and it was delicious. we had the packed lunches each day and these were of a very high standard and we all thoroughly enjoyed them. We also had 2 dogs with us and they were made welcome too – i was never made to feel they were a bother.We had TV and DVD in our rooms and the girls gave my son a choice of films which he enjoyed.We had a really happy time and we will be back and would recommend to all.  Julie Anne, Ian, Rachel and David – Glasgow

With such a warm welcome we felt right at home.Was greeted with coffee and cakes and it felt more like visiting old friends. Lindsey and Amanda clearly love what they do and remember their guests fondly. Had a lovely supper of homemade soup and a choice of sandwich. The 3 awesome little dogs made an appearance and settled down with us for a while. We were given great advice for day trips we could take and told loads about the local wildlife. They rooms were lovely and clean and provided everything we needed. Not many places make you want to return simply for the outstanding hospitality u this place certainly is one of them. Breakfast was lovely and plentiful and again Lindsey and Amanda couldn’t do enough. With such great value we will be sure to return here for a longer stay.  Colette and Gordon, Bristol

B&B number 3 on our tour of the highlands and what a lovely welcome! Lindsey and Manda had the coffee and homemade cake ready for our arrival. We were introduced to other other guests and the resident Westies and spent time in ther homely lounge getting to know everyone.. Thoroughout our 2 night stay, we always felt part of the ‘family’. The wildlife was fantastic expecially seeing pine marten ‘Peanut’ feeding on the table right outside the window – an experience well worth the wait! Locally, the walks and scenery are stunning and easily accessible.  Definitely recommended whatever your reason for visiting this beautiful part of Scotland – Jill & Jim

We arrived at Craik Na Dav after an epic journey round Scotland, from Greta Green to John O Groats and back down to Loch Ness, and after a long trip we thought we would be hitting the pillows hard. But when we arrived in the B&B we were greeted by two of the friendliest lady’s ever. Sisters Lindsey and Manda, are with out doubt two of the best hosts you could possibly want. On arivle we we’re treated to a wonderful supper of soup and sandwich. The rooms were fantastic, clean and well equipped. Such a wonderful atmosphere you can sit in the sitting room with Lindsey and Manda enjoying the banter with other guests over hot drinks, cakes and biscuits. Or relax in your en suite room with all the expected amenities, with the bonus of a drop of whiskey in a small dicanta all of your own. The breakfast was to order and delicious.   In summary, great B&B, wonderful service, very friendly and great value for money. Would recommend to every one.  Colette and Gordon, North Yorkshire

After a day of rain on our hiking the great glen way, we were welcomed so friendly. Lindsey and Manda offered freshly baked cake and tea and took care of our wet clothes.The room and the bathroom was very clean, well-equipped and warm.Their home is surounded by nature, many birds of all kind can be seen just looking out from the windows.They offered reservation in the restaurant nearby, where we had a real great dinner for a reasonable price.The breakfast was great, everything freshly prepared and also we had a packed lunch for the next day for 5 pound.They like to chatter with their guests in their spacious livingroom, giving useful advises for the tour.  Thank you very much Lindsey and Manda! – Gerlinde and Gunther

Stumbled upon this place by accident looking for a cheaper alternative as I was travelling around Scotland by myself. 
What you get for your money here is excellent. The rooms are spotless, comfortable and spacious as well as the en suite bathrooms.  The ladies that run the place are incredibly friendly and extremely attentive.  The icing on the cake as well is that it is a stone’s throw from some of the best views you will find of Loch Ness. – Grant H

It was our first visit to Scotland and we had taken a long time to carefully select the bed and breakfast we needed as a base for our week long stay. Well, we definitely made an excellent choice. Lindsey and Manda welcomed us on arrival and made us feel comfortable from the outset. They provided maps and books and gave us advice regarding our trips and welcomed us back each day to share our numerous stories over tea and cake. Lots of guests came and went over the week and the ladies made sure everything was clean and comfortable and maintained to a very high standard.  We are back home with lovely memories. Thank you Lindsey and Manda – it was a very special week. x  – Carolyn and Steve Low

We stayed one night during our Great Glen Way trek. It was perfect: right on the trail, privacy, views of the way we had come and a very warm welcome. There was also a nice shower, very clean room and great breakfast. They also provided a packed lunch for 5 pounds. We plan to be back……  Jean and Jill

Lindsey and Manda made us feel very welcomed and helped us with a dinner reservation at the last minute. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and quiet. The foot bath and massager were a much needed bonus! If you are in this area, this is the place to stay!!!  Wes, Dwane and Randall

Highly recommend a stay here, rooms beautifully clean . even a wee dram if your no too tired to be bothered after walking all day.
very welcoming sisters Lyndsey and manda trully went out of there way to ensure youre comfort, 
I was even treated to a salty foot bath and a pot of tea to ease my throbbing blistered feet..bliss…..
Really over and above for a bnb.
so dont hesitate book up theres no reason not too…
lots of wildlife to see and little birds visiting over breakfast we had some baby robins.
thankyou ladies Jo, Ray and Gem dog

We had a lovely pitstop here on enroute to the Isle of Skye. Despite us being late Manda and Lindsey could not have been more welcoming. Lots of lively chat over a lovely homely supper with our hosts and other guests. It’s in a perfect location so we were able to set off for a walk to Loch Ness at 10.40pm such was the lightness at this time of year. 
Very comfortable decor and furnishings it was just perfect for us and very reasonably priced for such good service. Don’t think about it, book! You won’t be disappointed.  Grainne and Pete

Walked the GGW over 6 days and stopped at B & B’s along the route. Stayed at Craik Na Dav on night 4 and found Linzi and Manda to be perfect hosts. We received a very warm welcome from the girls who supplied us with a large pot of tea and home made shortbread and cakes on arrival which was well received after a long days walking. The rooms were very comfortable and immaculate and their hospitality even stretched to a dram left in our room. The breakfast was brilliant, all freshly cooked to order. 
It takes a special type of person to run a B&B and trust me, this place has 2. Their 3 wee Westies are great fun and they even have visits from the local Pine Martin. I will definitely be using this place again.  Linda and Davy.

Have just come back from three nights at Craik Na Dav i can honestly say we didn’t want to leave, welcomed us with tea, coffee, homemade shortbread and cake and a wee dram, What a wonderful time we had staying in this gem of a place. Sisters Lindsey and Manda are such friendly hostesses.Breakfast was a great experience – all homemade and fresh even tried the haggis and liked it. We were made to feel that we were part of the family. What makes Craik Na Dav exceptional are the two sisters that are the owners. They truly love what they are doing, and it shows in every aspect of the B&B. They sincerely care about you and your comfort.  Pauline & Geoff

Lyndsey and Manda are great hosts, and it feels more like you are friends coming to stay rather than paying customers. Alfie and Holly our dogs were made very welcome and they were able to relax after their hard day on the GGW. I agree with all the other accolades in other reviews and would highly reccomend Craik Na dav as a first class B&B.  Andy & Jane and their dogs Alfie and Holly.

This was our third visit to stay with Lindsey and Manda and we were welcomed like old friends. Delicious soup, sandwiches and cake were served which really hit the spot after a lengthy journey from North Uist. As always the breakfast was delicious, the room was excellent and the company was great. Our dog loved it too! A superb selection of birds visited the feeders by the window and the pine marten payed a visit in the evening too. This is a real wildlife haven it is obvious that Lindsey and Manda really love what they do. We plan to return soon. – Chris, John & Leo their dog

We Sue, Joanne, Tony, Had the plesure of having a stop over here While doing the the GGW.
This B&B is 5*+. Lindsey & Amanda know how to make you feel welcome even with a little Scottish spirit in your room. 
The rooms are Beautiful and very comfortable with lovely views from the B&B.
Great breakfast, when you arrive they pass you a menu to choose what you want, there was that much on the menu to choose I was not sure how many I was allowed to tick.
I enjoyed breakfast with the birds.
Lindsy & Amanda enjoy what they do, and take pride what they do.
If you want value for your money this is the place to stay.
All there is left to say is. Thank you ladies – Sue, Joanne, & Tony, Doncaster

This was a find to stay one night as we walked the GGW. welcomed with tea, cake and shortbread, all home made. Lyndsey and Manda were excellent hosts and so friendly, a dram also included. Excellent breakfast. I cannot fault these girls or the stay. They are right on GGW before you start your 14 mile ascent to Drumnadrochit! This was our best overnight stay on our GGW walk and would highly recommend – Owen, Edinburgh

I totally agree with all the other report on this most warming wonderful oasis on the great glen way. Lindsey and Manda were like family from as soon as the door opened. I was only staying one night due to the GGW programme but would have stayed longer. They invited you to eat and drink with them and in your room they had left a plate of Shortbread and a wee dram as a welcome and to keep the chill off ..I have not been to a hotel or B & B that has every done this service . Definitely recommend and this B & B really makes you feel wanted and welcome. Loved the Highland Coo foot stool as well. Plus I have never seen so many different species birds in one garden a stand alone Bird watch programme ..plus pine martins although I wasn’t lucky enough to see this. – Lorraine N

I have never before left a review but feel compelled to do so on this occasion as I cannot recommend too highly this b&b. The welcome was warm without being oppressive. The accommodation was excellent in every way and the food outstanding. The position of the b&b is superb being on the Great Glen Way itself and just round the corner from a useful pub/restaurant. This is simply as good as it gets and I am trying to find an excuse to visit Invermoriston again. – Mark C

.

I can’t find enough superlatives to say how much I enjoyed Craik na Dav. Lesley and Manda were so incredibly welcoming (not to mention their three gorgeous Westies!), the house was immaculate and the breakfast superb.  We really felt as if we’d pitched up to stay with family – what a wonderful, warm, friendly B&B this was.  We will definitely be back, and I’d heartily recommend Craik na Dav to anyone exploring the Highlands. Perfect! – Clair and Lee

.

Our first foray proper into Scotland, walking the Great Glen Way. This place is directly on the route – couldn’t get any closer and couldn’t get a warmer welcome. Lindsey and Manda welcomed us straight into their own home with home made shortbread and fruit cake (I have the recipe) and tot of whisky in our room. Knowledgeable about the local area and enthusiastic about the local wildlife. Unfortunately we didn’t see the elusive pine martens, fortunately we didn’t see the elusive wild boar, but had a fantastic stay and will be back when we return to explore more of Scotland. – Jackie H

.

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Craik Na Dav, what a great time we had! Both Lindsey, Manda and the 3 westie ‘hounds’ were great company and the ladies hospitality was second to none. Tea and Cake was always on offer as was a great breakfast. Both Ali and I will be back ! – Alison
