We have just returned from a very relaxing family stay in Jessie Macs. We stayed in the Shee family room which was very spacious, spotlessly clean and had lovely extra touches such as hot water bottles and cosy blankets. The architecture of the house itself is lovely, as are the lovely pieces of art dotted throughout. My daughter loved the... More

Lovely. Sat in the lounge by the gas fire and didn't want to leave. Great big lounge with comfortable sofas. No television either which was superb! Bed was equally delightful to snuggle into. 😴 Ensuite facilities ideal too. Dot, thank you for a lovely home stay 😊

Dot and Brenda are so welcoming and this wee guest house is so cosy and just what you need. I was in Birnam for a yoga course and Jessie Mac's had been recommended as a place for us to stay and so glad we managed to get booked! The room was impeccably clean, we had wee bunk beds in a... More

Beautiful architecture surrounds this bed and breakfast, situated on a quiet street. Front desk staff are amazingly helpful and friendly. The rooms are cute and quaint equipped with fireplaces. The common area's are lovely and cozy with couches and blankets. All over just great hospitality and ambiance for a great price!

Dot and Brenda really want you feel at home here and what's more they want do it sustainably too. I have never seen anyone try and help guests segregate waste in the bedroom before by providing 2 bins! But then, not many B&B's are the proud recipients' of a VIBES award such is the environmental leadership going on here. Don't... More

Hi. It's good to know that people pick up on our sustainability work and it's really useful for us to know what it's like to be on the receiving end of hospitality. Keep us the reviews! Best wishes Brenda & Dot More

No complaints for the accommodation, the excellent breakfast and the welcoming hosts. The location is easily accessible for the town which is pretty. The confusing issue is the wide range of accommodation from hostel stayers to high quality bed and breakfast. There is a broad mix of people visiting here. The wifi was poor in the family room we stayed... More

Hi there. Thanks for staying and taking the time to write a review. It's a very kind review and gives us a bit of food for thought on how to communicate the variety of accommodation types that we offer. We'll work on that. Keep up the reviews - they help us businesses to do our jobs better. Brenda & Dot More

Thanks for the kind review. We use Trip Advisor ourselves when we go on holiday so we appreciate it from both sides when people like yourself take time to do it. And thanks for arriving by bike too - as a green business we love it when folk make it here under their own steam. Brenda & Dot More

Jessie Mac's is a hostel affiliated to the Scottish YHA. It has dormitory accommodation as well as private en-suite rooms. I stayed here for only one night on return from a trek of the Outer Hebrides. I would gladly have stayed longer and will certainly go back. If a place can be said to have been put together with love... More
