Scotland is blessed with many terrific B&B's, Little Carron Cottage is up there with the best. Great facilities, wholesome breakfasts and warm, friendly and attentive hosts. It is no surprise that many guest return time and again when they visit St Andrews, my wife and I shall join the club.

Comfortable bed; milk, orange juice, and tea/coffee in the kitchen; all amenities in the bathroom; beautiful garden; and lovely hosts (although we did not see a lot of them as we chose the self catering...

This is the sweetest place we have ever stayed in both the cottage and the owners! Not only did we have a room for our little minimoon but we had enough space to live in! A gorgeous bedroom, living room, kitchen and bathroom with very modern fittings. The front of the cottage is covered in beautiful roses making it so... More

We loved our stay at Little Carron Cottage! Our spacious suite was on the main floor with outside patio access to the garden. Everything was wonderful! Breakfast, hot and cold had many choices and Linda and Jim were very helpful with their suggestions on what to do and where to eat in town. The B&B is a twenty minute most... More

Thank you to Linda and the family for making me and my husband so welcome. The cottage was lovely, brilliant location and the service was more than we could have expected. Linda really took the time to give us tips in the St Andrews area and helped us find the wedding venue for our friends wedding. If we ever return... More

As we prefer a very light breakfast we were fortunate to be able to rent self catering rooms in the Little Carron Cottage. Linda Allison, the proprietor, was very welcoming and provided us with guidance regarding access to St Andrews' town centre and recommendations regarding restaurants. The accommodation was extremely comfortable and clean. The lounge is a bit bare but... More

Girls weekend shopping, eating, drinking and relaxing in St Andrews. Picked this B&B so we could walk into town. Twenty minute walk on the flat on pavements or riverside walk. We enjoyed relaxing at b&b which was perfect. Linda and Jim friendly welcome, gave advice on dining in and out and made a great breakfast. Will return again and again.... More

I recently spent 3 nights at Little Carron Cottage, while getting my daughter settled in at University. Linda and Jim were so welcoming and helpful, even prior to our arrival. After having spent the previous 3 weeks traveling throughout Scotland, the Swilcan Suite provided a perfect respite with a beautiful spacious bedroom, sitting room, and kitchen. It was wonderful to... More
