We stayed here one night last year and were incredibly impressed with everything. So, when we decided to head back to Scotland this year, we made a point to carve out 2 nights here. A bit of trepidation .... after all, they say to never return to a spot twice as you'll be disappointed. That was truly not the case... More

This beautiful house has been thoughtfully restored, to modern standards, but retains lots of character and charm. Hospitality was excellent from the moment we arrived, we were served fresh coffee and home baking. The rooms are tastefully decorated, and the ensuite bathroom with wonderful roll top bath, and separate walk in shower, was beautiful. Lovely soft towels, and high quality... More

Thank you, Catriona for making our stay with you so wonderful. Your dedication to your bed and breakfast is exceptional in every detail. The house is beautiful and elegantly decorated. The bed was so comfortable with crisp white linen. A great selection of teas and coffee with homemade shortbread kept crisp in tin beside the kettle. The bathroom is spotlessly... More

Catriona and John were the most wonderful hosts at anywhere we stayed at on our recent tip to Europe and the British Isles. The room was wonderful with touches that my wife enjoyed (flowers in the room and nice linen). My biggest regret is that we only stayed 2 nights, I didn't realise that the top of Scotland was so...

We found the best accomodation in Scotland! After several nights of hotels and inns, this is the best choice made so far in terms of accomodation. Strongly recommend, the family is great, the house is beautiful with a great view of the sea and the rooms are flawless.

I hope you all enjoyed Dunrobin Castle and that the salmon leapt for you at the Shin Falls. Enjoy the rest of your time in Scotland, best wishes from us both, Catriona More

Stayed one night on our way to Orkney and only complaint was that we weren't staying longer. Lovely welcome from Catriona and shown to our beautiful room which was even better than the website had suggested. We had booked supper knowing we wouldn't arrive until the evening and what a difference that made, beautiful food (many ingredients home grown) followed... More

What a wonderful place to stay. Our hosts were welcoming and helpful. We were greeted with a pot of tea and home made cakes and fresh raspberries from the garden (sumptuous).

We were in Culgower House just for a night but it was fantastic! It's very clean, quite, cofortable, the rooms are big and new. The b&b is closed to Dunrobin Castle and in just an hour you can reach Duncasby Head. We had a wonderful breakfast and the owner, Catriona, was very very very nice! A perfect place!

It's not often I can stay in a b&b without finding something I'm not happy with but Culgower House has to be the exception. Stayed on way to get the ferry to Orkney.
