Backbrae House is away from the hustle and bustle of life but close enough to Glasgow and Edinburgh to offer the best of both worlds; a car is recommended to reach both. Cath greeted us with warm cupcakes in our room straight from the oven. Breakfast was equally welcoming and made to measure and served in a stunning dining room....

From arrival to departure we were made to feel welcome! The owner couldn't do enough for us! She had decorated the large bedroom with 40th banners, balloons, confetti and had chocolates also. Then home made cupcakes and tea was brought up for us with wine. The evening meal was made fresh and was delicious, along with breakfast! Nothing was a...

Returning to Backbrae for another visit is like returning home. You could not feel more welcomed by this amazing family. The home, food, and local town are all exceptional. This is a unique B&B and, in our opinion, on of the best in Scotland. Stay here, you will keep returning as we do!
