We stayed on a cycling tour so comfy beds were very welcome as well as a decent shower. The house and 'grounds' are nice and spacious, garage storage for our bikes provided and the dogs were great!

Nice big room, warm house, clean, large bathroom with the twin room, mass of space to park the car. Recommended. Would definitely use it again. It's a short walk from lots of places to eat in the town.

Thank you for your review, as always we strive to make our guests warm and welcome throughout their stay. We have now basically finished all renovations to the bathrooms and had just finished laying carpets just before you arrived. It was a pleasure having you stay and hope that the rest of your visits throughout Scotland are as enjoyable. More

On arrival you get a friendly and helpful welcome. This is not a luxury B&B, but a good basic B&B with en-suite facilities. If you are a single traveler, the prices are on the expensive side, but if you are a couple, then the prices are competitive. The room was clean and of a reasonable quality. There are no face...

We stopped here on our way back from Orkney. Janet and Martin took us in with open arms. The rooms were very nice and comfortable. You have all you need. The only thing that was a little small was the bathroom, but its still ok! In the evening Martin lit the open fire, it was so warm and so cosy.... More

On our way to the Orkneys, best value of all the accommodation for 10 day tour. Substantial 3 coarse evening meal with wine just what cyclists need after a hard day ! Flexible timing for early start the next day with a traditional Scottish breakfast. Very hospitable couple! Recommend booking !

Stayed for only 1 night but made very welcome. The room was quite large with a lovely comfortable bed, a radiator was also there in case it was chilly a nice touch as one never knows how chilly it will be in Scotland in the summer. The breakfast was beautifully cooked and served. Thanks for your hospitality Linda S

pleasant welcome - but VERY pricey for what was provided.
