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. An early start meant no cooked breakfast offered and minimal continental provided, followed by being conversed with during said breakfast for FAR longer than it would have taken to cook and provide the proper breakfast.

Thank you for your review, enlightening considering what was discussed before departure, It is a great shame when explaining to guests what is available and at what cost, If the single room is insisted upon then we have to agree to what guests want. More

Received a very warm welcome from Martin and Janet. I stayed in the single room while on my Land's End to John O Groats walk. I was very satisfied with the accommodation and it was very good value for money. Nothing is too much trouble from the hosts who sincerely believe in customer satisfaction. Well done guys. EXCELLENT.
