We stayed at Cranford Guesthouse for just a single night with some friends and so wish it could have been longer. Sarah made us feel so welcome and is a great ambassador for this beautiful village. Our rooms were spotlessly clean and very comfortable and the whole house had a warm and cosy feeling. Our breakfast was just wonderful after...

Very generous and delicious breakfast, comfortable room, and friendly service. Only about 2-minutes' walk from the village centre. The host was certainly not "in your face" at all; in fact, it was hard to find her when we checked in and when we checked out. But she made us feel very welcome with a generous offer of coffee in the...

We stayed here for 1 night, but whished we would have had more time! The area is beautiful for hiking and biking. The B&B is big and the rooms are very clean and well equipped with private bathroom. The host offered us cake, coffee and tea on arrival which was perfect! Breakfast was amazing! We can highly recommend this B&B!

If you're looking for clean comfy rooms and surroundings, amazingly friendly hosts in Al and Sara, terrific breakfasts and tons of helpful advice on where to go and what to see in the area, then look no further than Cranford! Just spent the Easter weekend there, our forth visit the last few years, and it just keeps getting better!

Clean and comfortable. The owners went out of their way to welcome us with lovely coffee and cake. The breakfast was very good. Alister also went to the trouble of providing weather information from MWIS to assist in our Munro climb. My only niggle is the room and reception area was very cold on arrival. This was easily rectified by...

I had the pleasure of staying with Sarah at the Cranford B&B in Braemar on the night of 6th October, after a long drive from Scourie, over some very challenging , but interesting roads with great vistas. On arriving and taking my luggage to the well appointed room, Sarah had a tray of tea and cake ready for me in...

From the moment we arrived, Sarah made us feel so welcome. The room was beautiful, the breakfast superb, & really there is nothing to fault. Sarah was wonderful in providing dinner recommendations, & places to see both locally & afar! By the time we left, Sarah felt like a friend, and we only stayed overnight. If you plan to stay...
