Excellent B&B in a beautiful and quiet part of Scotland. Linda and David extremely welcoming and friendly. Amazing to find out that David's family hail from the street opposite ours! As all reviews mention, the breakfasts set you up for the day - today's stewed rhubarb and ginger with Greek yoghurt was delicious! They do have some self- catering options... More

Weve now been to Millbrae House several times. Linda and David are so kind and make you feel so welcome and at home. We cannot fault Millbrae and that's why we keep coming back. The rooms are brilliant and the breakfasts are to die for, especially David's Scottish breakfasts. The area is lovely for walking especially along the coastal paths.... More

Third visit to Millbrae House and first with our spaniel Bobby. Bobby says thanks for the daily dog biscuit ! A pleasure again to stay. Rockcliffe and area is so pleasant to visit - very little traffic, beautiful scenery, good walks and pleasant people.

Everything at Millbrae House was outstanding form the moment we arrived (tea and biscuits provided in the conservatory) to the moment we left (after an amazing breakfast). We wished we had been staying longer, but we shall certainly be back.
