Shandwick house is a Grade B listed Victorian town house built in 1849 situated within the conservation area in the Royal Burgh of Tain. The Guest House has 6 recently renovated Guest rooms with a real period feel with ample onsite parking.The house has retained many of its original features and has a later arts and craft style extension at the rear of the building. It is a short walk to the town centre and train station there is also a good selection of shops places to eat and several bars.
Dated 1849 Shandwick House has seen different uses over the last century and a half; the original use is not clear however we believe that it was used a doctors surgery at one point. Originally the house also had stables though these appear to have either been demolished or sold off with adjacent land. Purchased by us in 2013 and then restored to specification for Grade B listed building within the conservation area of Tain we offer a high quality stay for guests with a relaxed atmosphere in which to enjoy their visit.With experience within the hotel trade for over 15 years we understand the need for comfort with functionality.
All rooms have full en-suite facilities (baring one which has private separate bathroom) all come with TV free Wi-Fi tea and coffee making facilities. There is a guest dining area where we serve our full Scottish breakfast or lighter meals should you wish this is also available throughout the day for a self-service facility of light refreshments. Only five minutes walking distance from Tain Railway Station and Central Bus Stop.
Free parking on site. Free WIFI. Our policy is no smoking throughout the building.
