I stayed here for 2 nights recently while on a work trip - This guest house sits in a very pleasant and quiet location, with lots of lovely walks to stretch your legs in the evening. Spotlessly clean and comfortable with a very pleasant and helpful hostess. I struggled to get an internet connection on my first night but she... More

Positive reviews of this B&B led us to book for two nights, and becUse we liked it so much, stayed for another night. We wish we could have stayed longer. Fiona was a great hostess, and the breakfasts were delicious. We had the downstairs room with the private bathroom, which was fine for us. The room was spacious and had... More

An "unfortunate" experience at another property saw us making a last minute 3 night booking at Coynachie.

We stayed here for two nights, as we wanted to be within a commutable distance of Aberdeen but escape the city pace. The guest house lived up to reviews and photos on their own web site don't do it justice. "Heater" was a lovely, quiet large, ground floor bedroom with great views and a wood burning stove.

Fiona and David are great hosts...have wonderful rooms and serve great breakfasts. The surrounding countryside is lovely...I was working but wished l was walking!

My family stayed there for 3 nights in July 2009 just after it opened. The guest rooms were immaculate. The surrounding country side was beautiful with a great path to walk into the hinterland surrounded by flowers, cows and sheep. Fiona was the consummate host even while attending to her young boys who must be great help by now. Just... More

The accommodation was just as we expected from all the wonderful reviews. What we didn't expect was thefantastic way that Fiona and David were so very responsive to all of our requests sometimes helping us before we had even asked ~ like the scraper by the hire car on a very snowy morning!

This is a wonderfully cosy guesthouse. The huge rooms have even huger bathrooms. The decor is very well appointed and the beds super comfortable. Coynnachie is set in the most beautiful Aberdeenshire countryside with great walks from here to the remote Cabrach area. Best of all is the breakfast with poached apricot porridge.
