I have made 20 trips to Scotland in the past 12 years of 2 weeks to 2 months duration, and I almost always stay in B&B's. I am certain I have stayed at more than 100 B&B's in that time, and this one is by far the finest I have ever encountered. I stayed here previously in 2003 under a... More

This is a superb B&B. We thought it was one of the best-managed places we'd ever stayed in and represented superb value for money. Positives: - The breakfast. Oh my. This is up there with the very, very best breakfast experiences we've had anywhere. It really is that good. Everything was either made fresh or was carefully sourced and it... More

This B and B had all of the amenities you could ask for. In the bathroom there were extra toothbrushes, toothpaste, washcloths, and a heated towel rack. In the cupboard there were bath robes and slippers. On the desk there was an array of teas and coffee, cookies, and a bottle of sherry that guests were encouraged to snack on.... More

Following our research on Trip Advisor and on a recommendation fro our son we spent three very enjoyable nights at The Old Ministers House. We found Shelagh very helpful and we followed her advice on where to eat particularly for my wife's birthday. For that evening we went next door to "The One Pot Borrowed" which was very nice. The...

We recently had a warm welcome and a wonderful night at this fab guest house. Huge attention to detail, everything that could possibly be done to ensure a comfortable stay, fresh milk & fresh coffee in my room for that early morning cup while looking out onto the Cairngorms, just brilliant. A small sherry in the bath with my book... More

This B and B is beautifully decorated and the room had very nice touches, good coffees/teas/biscuits/sherry. The bed was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. However, I felt that we did not get a very warm welcome, being asked why we were there. We were asked to book a slot for breakfast which was a little too regimented for my liking... More

A luxurious B&B with all the trimmings - toothbrushes, shaver, sherry, biscuits, it’s all there! Our room was a good size and very comfortable. There is also a guest lounge with an honestly bar, very nice for relaxing in the evening. The breakfasts were excellent. Our host was a lovely lady who was friendly and very helpful. We would not...

We returned again this year and were not disappointed - the same high standard of accommodation and a beautifully appointed, cosy room. Breakfast was amazing again, how I'd love to get my hands on the secret apple and plum compote recipe! It was really encouraging that the jugs of juice and smoothie were taken away and refilled regularly so that... More

We stayed here for 2 nights recently. The place was decent, the food was good, the rooms were comfy. The owner didn't, however, make us feel welcome at all. We were polite and courteous at all times, arrived outwith the scheduled booking in time but made sure the owner knew about this and stuck to the time we did give... More
