We have just had four days at Little Carron with excellent hosts, Jim and Linda. Great place to stay, lovely breakfasts and lots of local information ( including emergency dentists!) from Jim and Linda. The facility to have your own lounge and kitchen made it really good for longer stays.

Our daughter was at University in St Andrews between 2006 and 2010. When we first arrived we did not know how busy a place St Andrews was and, as we had not booked anywhere, Cupar was the nearest place we could find accommodation. As we knew we'd be backwards and forwards several time a year we looked on the internet... More

A lovely large bathroom, double sinks, toilet, bath with shower over. Extra large comfortable bed. All very clean 5* accommodation and service. Generous first class breakfast, would recommend...

We stayed for 2 glorious nights whilst having a first taste of golf at St Andrews. We couldn't have picked a better place to stay, lovely couple, very accommodating, Jimmy even allowed my friend his golf clubs so he didn't have to hire them (no improvement in handicap though!!). The rooms and breakfast ( local produce) were the perfect start... More

Best bed and breakfast we've ever stayed in. Warm and welcoming hosts, Linda and Jim, not only provide two beautiful suites but also provide helpful area and golf information. The pictures online do not do justice to the charm and spaciousness of the house, rooms, and garden. The bed in our suite was very comfortable. Breakfast was scrumptious and served... More

We were very lucky to book at very short notice, and what a find. We wouldn't hesitate to book again if we return to St Andrews, and highly recommend. Every positive comment on the site is endorsed. The only downside we were not there long enough.!!

On our recent trip to the UK, we arranged before leaving to do Sunday at the Open Championship. The extra few miles to St. Andrews (about two hours' drive from the Open venue at Muirfield) were a possibility, but only if time allowed. Fortunately, it did. We booked the Little Carron Cottage through the internet the week before arriving and... More
