“The pretty, white-painted Albannach, perched above Lochinver Bay with the rugged Assynt mountains as a backdrop, has all the qualities of a supermodel wrapped in her vintage cashmere cardigan – modishly beautiful on the inside with a classic, time–honoured appearance. Rich wood panelling, antique rugs, crackling fires and interesting books complement the stylish, contemporary bedrooms and suites. The Byre features a hot tub and private terrace. In the restaurant, a well-deserved Michelin Star reflects technical excellence and exquisite local ingredients. It’s a long drive on windy roads … but well worth the effort.”

“Chef/proprietors Colin Craig and Lesley Crosfield are the holders of various awards for their authentic Scottish hospitality and skillful interpretation of modern Scottish cooking. Now entering its 22nd year, The Albannach has once again retained its Michelin star, awarded in 2009.
In December 2008, the hotel was awarded a Gold Star from VisitScotland's Quality Assurance Scheme, "in recognition of excellent hospitality and service".”
