Both my husband and I truly enjoyed our daily conversations with him. We were unfortunately unable to meet Katrina as she was away that weekend, but my... More

We were staying at The Guest Room for five nights. When we arrived we were warmly welcomed by the family and showed to our room which has its own separate entrance and is one level below the family's apartment.

The highlight... More

We'd travelled from Australia for our first ever visit to Scotland and this was to be our first time in a B&B. From first email contact we knew it was going to be better than a hotel. Katrina had prompt answers to all our questions so that when we arrived there no surprises. In fact our quarters – with their... More

We stayed at the guest room for 2 nights and everything was perfect. The room was spacious and beautifully decorated and we felt absolutely at home. Katrina and Fergus made us feel very welcome and took the trouble to advise us on the rest of our trip in Scotland. We hope to come back again in the future.
