This B & B is so comfortable and homely. Fabulous host Margaret was on hand always to tell you all about the area. You will certainly feel at home here. Fabulous. The location is within walking distance of the centre of St Andrews.

We enjoyed the hospitality of James and Margaret for 5 nights earlier this week. They are charming hosts and run a spotlessly clean and tidy b & b where we were very comfortable and relaxed. Breakfasts are to a good standard and are prepared to order for each guest. Access to the upstairs bedrooms is up quite steep stairs, so... More

Best stay of 10 days in Scotland. Beds, bath, and breakfasts superb. Margaret & James shared expertise and opinions in lively conversations. Interesting fellow guests at breakfast. Convenient to downtown, bus station, golf. Highly recommended by seasoned travelers who would have like to stay longer with the Yules. A CLASSY above trendy or quaint hotel.

Margaret and James are simply wonderful in their welcome, their friendliness and even their breakfast cooking:-). The room n° 1 was spacious, the beds were very comfortable and the bathroom was perfect. James can arrange some tee time on most courses in Saint Andrews. Really value for money. Close to the City Center to visit all major attractions. They can... More

If you've travelled in Scotland, you need to round out your experience by visiting St. Andrews. Although known as the birthplace of golf, it is that and so much more. There are events at the University, one of the world's best, and also historic sites such as the ruins of the castle and the cathedral, once one of the largest... More
