Salmon, single malt, superb staff, classy hotel.
Murray Lamont and his staff provided excellent and friendly service and help with issues ranging from transport to scrumptious meals and divine single malts to a firm that can assist me with propping up my great great grandfather’s headstone for his family in Old Wick Cemetery. I was so impressed with everyone and they made our stay so memorable. I will definitely return to Wick and MacKay’s, perhaps in a month warmer than February to enjoy the Highlands in bloom.
