This is not the fanciest place that you will ever stay in....But you didn't come to this part of Scotland for fancy. The owner's are very nice and the rooms were clean. The breakfast the next morning was good too.... The photo shown with this B&B is deceiving because it's not from the Porridge House. No matter, the B&B is... More

Superb breakfast at very cheap rates. Room also good. Only downsides are accessibility to premises because husband & wife are both working full-time elsewhere and no lounge available to guests.
