The Barn at The Old Manse is a superb conversion of an 18th-century stone barn, set in the grounds of a historic listed building dating back to the 1780s which the owners run as a B&B. Set in a large 2-acre woodland garden, it provides a very good standard of accommodation in a tranquil yet accessible location. The main living area is a stunning room on the ground floor converted from the old barn into a beautiful open plan living area, whilst retaining many of the original features. High ceilings, original oak beams and deep-silled windows are complemented by a large wood burner, wood flooring and colour co-ordinated soft furnishings throughout. Stairs lead up from the living room to a mezzanine floor above, providing a second living room, which also doubles as a second bedroom with a deep leather sofa that converts to a double bed if required.
Set away from the main house, with its own pretty patio areas, both front and back, The Barn enjoys peace and quiet as well as stunning views across the open countryside. Visitors are welcome to wander the woodland grounds and enjoy the pretty walks all around. The Barn is situated in the small hamlet of Kildary with numerous lovely walks direct from the door. The thriving small town of Tain, Scotland’s oldest Royal Burgh, is 5 miles away. There are a number of supermarkets here, as well as a good selection of pubs, restaurants, cafés and shops. For those who enjoy a ’wee dram’, Glenmorangie, Dalmore and Balblair distilleries are all close by and open to the public. The pretty Seaboard villages of Balintore, Shandwick and Portmahomack are just 10 minutes’ drive away, and the beach at the Royal Burgh of Dornoch lies just 15 miles to the north. Golfer’s are spoilt for choice, with Tain, Alness and Golspie courses within close proximity and the renowned Royal Dornoch Golf Club nearby, which is ranked 5th in the world. Wildlife is abundant in the area; red kites and buzzards frequently wheel overhead and owls are often heard in the garden at night. Deer are also regularly seen close by. Beach 6 miles. Shop 5 miles, pub and restaurant ¼ mile.

    We had an amazing time at the Barn over Christmas and New Year. The Barn was excellent, kitchen full of enough equipment to make Christmas Dinner. The place is beautiful, inside and out. Neale and Janet were great hosts and pointed out some places to visit and nothing was too much trouble. The welcome pack was excellent and not at all expected. Hope to book again when most of the attractions are open. Loved every minute of this holiday and we were sad to leave.

    This was our third visit, so that tells you how much we like it. The only negative was the mattress was a little too hard for my liking. Other than that it's fantastic! Well thought out, has everything you can think of in the kitchen. Bathrooms great very clean. Gardens are large and well kept. With lots of different birds in the garden. The dog really settled there.

    Response on behalf of the owner; It was great to welcome you both back again with of course the addition of Jock, what a character. Thank you for choosing The Barn, your review and feedback is much appreciated. I will soon know the local area as well as you do.

    We had a wonderful relaxing week at the Barn. It is a thoughtfully converted space with every comfort, set in a private and beautiful setting. The wildlife outside the window was particularly magical. The owners were very friendly and helpful, and a lovely welcome pack much appreciated. We will be back soon!

    We loved our stay in the Barn, it had everything anyone could need, a great layout and choice of furnishings. The welcome pack was a lovely, a nice surprise, full of everything we like. Everything was good quality, clean and as shown in the photographs. Neale and Linda were very welcoming and couldn't do enough for you. There were plenty of seating areas outside to chill with a wine or wee dram. Very handy for the local amenities, shops leisure centres, walks, fantastic beaches, distilleries (Glenmorangie, Balblair and Dalmore...a little bit further north to Clyneleish.) and golf courses. Would highly recommend The Barn and local area.
