Castle Guest Book
We had a great time at the Castle. The place is amazing, the people were lovely and the food was out of this world. The activities were a good laugh - even in the rain!!
I can hardly believe I've been home for a week. I don't want to forget to write and say thank you so very much to ALL of the outstanding staff at Amhuinnsuidhe for providing such outstanding service and making me and my family feel so welcome during our recent stay.
Thank you again for everything. I cannot tell you how completely I enjoyed my visit to Harris - or how much I needed just such an adventure. I hope to return again someday.

I would like to commend the management and staff for a wonderful four days spent at your estate, October 2012. My wife, sister and I are from America and while I am sure that we must have such places in our country, none of us have ever seen them.
First, the building was very well maintained, warm comfortable and placed in a spot that God alone could have created. The art and furnishings were warm and inviting. The physical plant well made and functioned well.
Second, the food was excellent. It was fresh, well crafted, delicious, well presented and always left us looking forward to the next meal. The publishing of the dinner menu early in the day added to our expectations. Packing a lunch became something we really enjoyed. Not something I thought I would hear myself say before I stayed at Amhuinnsuidhe.
Thirdly, the guests seemed to get along very well despite their diverse backgrounds. As guests in your country, we felt welcomed by English, Irish and Scot alike.
Lastly, the housekeeping was done without us even noticing it happening, even while we were in house and it must have been going on around us, we never saw it nor ever felt other than at home in whatever room we were in. The castle was clean and orderly at all times.
May God preserve this estate and those that own, stay or serve in it.

We, the Laarman party (Muriël, Annelies, Wil, Erik, Rob & Hans) would like to thank everyone at Amhuinnsuidhe Castle for making ours a very pleasant and memorable stay!! Staying in a castle has always been on our wish list since 2000 when we started spending our holidays in Scotland every other year.
Now we have and it was everything we’d expected it to be and more!
Briony, Edit, Jennifer, Innes & everyone else behind the scenes made this a special week for us and we look back on our castle-days on Harris with much pleasure. The meals, the care, the problem solving (beds!), the fun, the talks, the assistance, the scenery: Everything was perfect!
Cheers ALL of you, with high & kind regards,
Luckily for me Ive become familiar with your cooking David over the years, I consider myself very fortunate to have dined extremely well on a few occasions. The meal you provided for the recent wedding however was certainly remarkable and worthy of praise.
Leaving aside the fact that you were catering for 60 guests, the quality of the food was second to none. I believe every dish in the buffet would have stood alone as a fantastic centerpiece to any meal. Your food was much commented on and I am certain that this was the best wedding food I have ever tasted… by some margin.
The Father of the groom, himself a much travelled and distinguished gentleman, was certain that it was the “best wedding he was ever at” Fine praise indeed from someone who doesn’t generally single things out unless they are very deserving.
I think the whole wedding was a great success and I totally agree with the gentlemans words. The food, the venue, the service, the organization, and support on the day were all absolutely first class.
“First Class” doesn’t really do justice to the way we were all treated. There should be a new standard of service ….. “Amhuinnsuidhe Class”.
Innes, and David well done, please pass on my thanks and praise to all the staff.
