We were still planning our two-week trip to Scotland last month and had basically nailed down the area we really wanted to explore (i.e. The Whisky Trail), so we searched and searched for a B&B in the general region of the distilleries. The problem was that it was one of the last B&Bs we were booking and it was for...

We booked four single rooms for a golf trip and we all loved it. Great accommodation, clean throughout, excellent breakfast, excellent off road parking, great location and finally Blair and Ross were the most helpful and attentive owners we have ever experienced. Nothing was too much trouble to both and we did have a number of unusual requests from wanting...

This is a very welcoming and comfortable guest house. One of the best I have stayed in. Great parking and as this was my first stay my room was at the back, away from traffic noise and is ideal for both business users and couples on vacation.

During the holidays my girlfriend and I stayed for more than a week (!) at this lovely and friendly spot, and it could have been two weeks.
