Our stay at Minty and Gavins wonderful place Craigiewood was a highlight on our tour. It was the third station on our trip through scottland. We arrived and immediately felt like coming home. The woods around, the cats, especially Bertie and of course the picturesque house with all the flowers is something we will allways remember. We loved the peaceful... More

Thank you so much for writing such a nice TripAdvisor review about us. Being a very small Bed and Breakfast - reviews mean a lot to us especially when they are as glowing as yours was! We so loved having you to stay and please come back soon. Bertie is waiting for you! With best wishes. More

We were charmed by our hosts, their lovely home & grounds that make you feel you want to stay a good while. Wonderful breakfasts & conversations & helpful suggestions along with hand drawn maps - needed to make ones' way through the winding, unfamiliar back roads...but that's part of the charm.

Just over the bridge to the Black Isle, which we wanted to tour, this B & B was a few miles into the country--really quiet.

We were delighted to arrive at Craigiewood after driving through from Doune that day. Enjoyed the leafy roads that lead up to the house. Charming hosts, beautiful peaceful, bird filled garden setting on six acres surrounded by farmland. Dinner down at the pub by the sea was excellent. It was a perfect base for our trips to Elgin, Inverness etc.... More

In spite of telephoning Araminta for a room at very short notice both she and Gavin were extremely warm and welcoming. Having the use of the very attractive sitting room and the beauty of the surrounding countryside would alone persuade us to return. Serena & Henry

We spent two pleasant nights at Craigiewood in June 2013. To our embarrassment, we had somehow booked the wrong month, and were very late, but in spite of this, we were welcomed warmly by Araminta and Gavin. Gavin even came by car to rescue us when we became hopelessly lost in the dark due to our poor navigation skills! After... More

I stayed for just one night to collect my husband from the Caledonian Sleeper train before heading back up north. As I had the dog with me I needed somewhere I could give him a good off lead walk so the hotel right by the station was out of the question. Craigiewood was perfect as it is only about ten... More

We stayed only two nights at Craigiewood but it was wonderful, and we can't wait to return. We especially enjoyed the wonderful surroundings of the immediate area as well as the lovely garden, the cosy living room with the fire and the peace and quietness of it all.
