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!

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.
