Well, what can I say. This house was the best place we stayed at during our holiday coming from London and driving up an down North to South of Scotland. Culgower House is a large imposing house overlooking the sea. On arrival, we were greeted by the hostess Catriona who served us with home made shortcake and a drink. This... More

I and two friends stayed here for one night and found it to be a terrific place to stay. We were welcomed by our host with tea and cake and received superb hospitality throughout. The room was exceptionally comfortable, clean and came with a top quality en-suite bathroom. The breakfast was also of an excellent standard. Culgower House is not... More

Booked here shortly before our stay due to an error with our booking at another nearby luxury hotel which forced us to find lodging elsewhere. The hosts graciously booked us and we're very accommodating with our late arrival. The host, house, rooms, and accommodation are all 5 star. We were offered a late tea with delicious biscuits, which was very... More

A manor house, looking across to the North Sea, with a superb garden. The cleanliness, and attention to visitors was second to none in my experience. The food and general friendliness was of a very high standard.

We loved it very much. The location is very good if you want to explore the area or if you are passing through (we stayed one night in our way to Orkney). I'd say this is the best B & B I have been in the UK (and one of the best in the world!). You really feel at home... More

We stayed at Culgower for 2 nights and had a fantastic stay. Catriona greeted us with tea and homemade cake when we arrived which was lovely. Our room (Garty) was large, with a large bathroom too. The bed was kingsize and very comfortable, and the toiletries provided in the bathroom were natural and high quality. I think this was one... More

From the moment you enter the drive to this beautiful house you realise this is a special place to stay. We were warmly greeted by Catriona and John and served afternoon tea with home made cake in the comfortable lounge. As we had a long journey that day we decided to have supper there which was delicious and plentiful. Local... More

We stayed two nights at this beautiful, extremely comfortable, spotless B & B. It's in a perfect location to tour up and down the coastal area and within an easy drive to good restaurants. Cakes and cookies are all home baked and breakfast offers things like warm, fresh baked scones and pancakes. The B & B is beautifully decorated in... More

A beautiful B&B with seaview from the bathtub. The room was wonderful and spotlessly clean. The bed so comfortable I wish I could've taken it with me. Breakfast was outstanding with the best oatmeal ever! Owners very helpful. And it was a treat to meet the wellkept secret - Biscuit the dog! Thank you!
