This was my first visit to the Hermitage for about 50 years! I knew the house when it belonged to the doctor. I used to stay with my grandparents in the house next door during the summer holidays and play with his daughter. The Hermitage is a beautiful, warm and welcoming guest house. The decor is excellent and our rooms...

While travelling to the Highlands recently we stayed for one night at this “gem” of a Guest House and enjoyed our stay so much that we booked for another two nights on our return journey home. The Hermitage Guest House is superb, and is within easy access of the station for those arriving by train or easy to find if...

Just returned back to London from Kingussie and again stayed at the Hermitage. The whole 3 night stay was faultless and found myself sitting in the lounge the day of departure thinking of ways to delay my return to London and to stay put for a bit longer. You will not find a couple more accomodating than Andrew and Pauline...

This is a beautiful B & B! The room immaculate with a very comfortable bed and big soft fluffy towels in the bathroom. The breakfast was excellent with plenty to choose from. Pauline will even make you pancakes!! Andrew and Pauline made us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived and nothing was too much trouble. After a rather...

I love this b&B. The quality of the rooms and furnishings cannot be faulted. Andrew and Pauline are excellent hosts. The breakfast is very very good indeed. The place is spotless. I stayed here when crossing scotland on the the great outdoors challenge in May and found it a most welcome respite.

I wouldn't have found this place by chance as I was directed here from an earlier enquiry that was full. A great find and a warm welcome. The room was lovely and the GH was in a back road so was quite quiet. Breakfast was good with fresh fruits and plenty of other good things on the table. I would...

There are some B&Bs where you feel you are the first people to stay there and this is definitely one of them. Andrew and Pauline could not have been more welcoming and the house and rooms were perfect. Taste and cleanliness were top notch and you are sent on your way with a great breakfast. This is an excellent location...

Our room was clean, the bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was huge. The b&b was more like a small hotel in many ways and we liked having our own front door key. The location of the hermitage is fantastic if you're heading north (as we were) as its not far off the beaten track. It's very close to...

A mere 100 metres from NCN7. A bike shed. An owner who understands cyclists needs. Porridge as an option for breakfast. A gobsmacking view from the breakfast room. This is a great b&b. I left my watch behind. Doh! I was called within an hour of leaving and it was posted to me, at the proprietors expense - Andrew refused...

“Trium is fantastic if you have 3 in your party like we had, myself and my two daughters stayed together in this very roomy comfortable room.”
  • Single bed side of the Trium room...the only triple room we found.
  • View from the single bedded area (it was a bit of a cloudy day)
  • The twin part of the room, very spacious and comfortable
