Stand-out accommodation in the beautiful highlands
We biked from Lands End to John o’Groats, and our night at Altnaharra B&B was one of the true highlights! Mandy is a total people-person, and the most welcoming and friendly hostess you could wish for. She gave a secure spot to store our bikes, cooked us a delicious meal with fish her husband had caught in the loch, and generally made us laugh like drains! Nothing is too much trouble for her and I defy anyone not to love this place!

The reception we received from Mandy made our long journey to the property well worth it. The property was so peaceful and we would love to have stayed longer.
