We stayed at East Brae last year (July 2012) as a group on a charity event. We found East Brae on the internet and booked accordingly. We were made so welcome by the hosts Jim and Christine that when a further charity event was arranged this year we had no hesitation in booking again. Jim and Christine are great hosts... More

We were on a charity trip round the UK visiting 66 Army Bases to raise money for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal. One night we could not get accommodation in Army Barracks so stayed here. What a fantastic place it is set in beautiful Dumfrieshire and although near a road it was very quiet. Very clean and great food.... More

We were using sat nav to try and find the cottage (not recommended) eventually we phoned and a friendly voice directed us to our destination. Jim met us at the... More

This very comfortable (large) cottage is run by two people whom I found extremely hospitable. Jim even cut a screw to a better length for me to repair a fault in my bicycle. Christine, a mother of four and a foster mother for 24 years, is very solicitous. I did not have an evening meal but the breakfasts were first... More
