The room was beautiful with a view. The supper (don't forget to book) was fantastic and excellent value for money. Also breakfast was memorable and set us up well for the day. One of the best things was the attentive cups of tea and biscuits supplied by our host Catriona whenever we returned to 'base'. We had some good visits... More

Where do I begin to describe this bed and breakfast. Well..here goes: It, first off, is very beautiful; set on a hill with a view (well, okay, most things in Scotland are on a hill). The host and hostess were very gracious and all that one would want. The home is quite old and totally updated but yet kept in... More

Dear Sandy, Thank you for your lovely review, glad that you both enjoyed your stay with us and the "green" side of the house as well. Breakfasts to go for guests leaving early are a popular choice and hopefully you both had a great time on your day trip to Orkney. Best wishes from us both, Catriona More

We had explicit directions to find this property but they worked very well and we had no trouble. Catriona and John could not have been kinder, making sure we had everything we needed and directing us to the local pub for a meal. They have done a fabulous job turning a lovely house into a stunning b&b. I wish we... More

I can only agree with my prescribing, which is (in my opinion) the most beautiful B & B on our trip to Scotland by motorbike. Room and bathroom are generously divided and the breakfast is just the dream, the hosts are very friendly and Bisquit (the dog) gets an extra hug from me and my daughter. A very nice property...

We were a group of 6 staying here on the way down from Orkney. We had to leave Orkney a day early, and luckily the owners were able to accommodate this and change our booking at short notice. A lot of thought clearly goes into to everything at Culgower House, and there are personal touches throughout. It is a beautiful... More

This is a lovely B and B. We were welcomed with tea and homebakes on arrival. The room was spotless and our bathroom huge. We loved the toiletries too. Breakfast was excellent. We could not have asked for 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.
