Lol) large selection... More

There is a spacious parking lot in the back of the house and there are good restaurants within walking distance, not to mention the Gordon & MacPhail shop five minutes away with the huge stock of malt whiskies from all parts of Scotland (and the rest of the...

I've never met such a kind and nice landlady! Warm welcome, lovely room with en-suite facilities, excellent and delicious traditional Scottish breakfast. Totally recommended! Only negative side: weak Internet connection from the room (possible to use the dining room if needed).

This B&B was booked for me by my company but it's certainly one I would ask for again! My room was at the rear of the property and no noise intrusion from other guests or outside. Ample private parking, free wifi, nice shower room. The room is beautifully decorated in neutral tones. I arrived quite early before work but it... More

Easily the nicest owners and best service I've had anywhere. Lovely,clean, room and excellent breakfast. Without a doubt the best in town.... More

As we had to drive some distance and was not arriving till late, Carole kept in touch and even waited up for us to arrive. It was explained that the room was "Wee room"however we was greeting to a lovely double bed with... More
