What an amazing place. Jerry and Linda are the most generous and helpful owners of this beautiful B and B located on the Scores within walking distance of the entire city of St. Andrews. A beautiful view (included with Binoculars! Can you fancy that) of St. Andrews Castle from the breakfast area each morning was a warm welcome to this... More

We've just returned from a lovely mid week break in sun kissed St Andrews and stayed in the perfect b&b. Situated opposite the castle ruins with superb views over the North Sea we couldn't have chosen a better location or accommodation. We were warmly welcomed by the delightful owner who showed us to our well appointed room with views over... More

We found Castlemont online several years ago and have been coming back ever since. To us it is the ONLY place to stay in St Andrews. Located across from St Andrews Castle it is perfectly situated to allow you to explore the town. Jerry and Linda Anne are perfect hosts. They offer suggestions on what to see and do, where... More

Jerry and LInda Ann made us feel like guests in their home when we were in town last week visiting the University. The room (bed and pillows) was very comfortable and had all of the amenities one would require.

Stayed for three nights while visiting St. Andrews. B&B is incredibly well located on the coat road with superb views of the ruined castle and the sea, especially from the elevated breakfast room. Gerry made us very welcome and provided great chat. He also kindly let me charge my electric car up, which was very convenient. Quite simply, this B&B... More

We and another couple stayed here for two nights during a visit to St. Andrews. The B&B overlooks the castle ruins and is steps away from the old cathedral and cemetery. Historic St. Andrews University is all around you with plenty of shops and restaurants. We were an easy 5 minute walk from The Old Course and the seashore. The... More

Truly a wonderful experience at the Castlemount. Jerry was a great host and very helpful in making suggestions for day trips. The breakfasts were outstanding. The eggs Benedict and pancakes were delicious, but Jerry's porridge with special Whiskey cream was exceptional. We stayed in the room right off the breakfast room. The view was spectacular, room was comfortable and the... More

We spent 6 wonderful nights at Castlemount, April 5th through 11th. Coming from the US, this was our first trip to Scotland and abroad. The owners and staff at Castlemount exceeded our expectation of hospitality. Linda was the sweetest and most accommodating hostess. This being our first time, we truly didn’t know what to expect. Linda and her staff, along... More

We've stayed at Castlemount B&B, just 2 nights ago and it turned out to be a perfect start of our tour around Scotland. We arrived on short notice and were warmly welcomed by Jerry himself, who gave us a tour around the establishment and some hints and tips for our stay in Saint Andrews. The green room, ground level, with... More

Castlemount is absolutely lovely. I was pleasantly surprised that our room was actually a suite with an extra bedroom (we didn't need the extra bed but it came in handy to open out our suitcases). There was a nice sitting area and a view of the garden. Breakfast was excellent, the view from the breakfast room was beautiful and the... More
