The setting for this B & B is just superb, even the Scottish weather does not spoil the setting. Morag and Phil are brilliant hosts and are more than willing to pass on their knowledge of the area and all its attractions. I have visited many places and thought that I wouldn't mind going back there again, but this is... More

My friend and I stayed very recently with Morag and Phil at their fabulous guest house. The house is very tastefully decorated and the breakfasts are delicious, try the full scottish! The house also sits in beautiful grounds and nothing was too much trouble for them. Morag booked taxis for us and booked the local hotel for us for dinner,... More

Our family had a very relaxing break in Malling West for 2 nights! Breakfast was excellent, and the kids were kindly allowed to play in the huge gardens and loved it. The hosts wonderful and also really helpful with recommending activities and restaurants in the local area, which was great since it was our first holiday in Scotland!

If you are looking for the perfect B&B, then this is it. It is in the most peaceful and tranquil of settings, with absolutely stunning gardens. It almost felt magical and all that was missing from the fairy tale was some little elves and fairies popping out from behind the trees. The rooms are bright and spacious and has everything... More

If judging any establishment on Tripadvisor was simply judging the people that run it, then Malling West would be the premier B&B in Scotland. Morag and Phil are an absolute delight and if you’re prone to the odd bout of homesickness while on holiday, then visiting Malling West offers you the cure!!!! Morag and Phil, well, you just feel as... More

We've been in malling west for two nights. It was a wonderful experience since the house (old sheperd house completely refurbished by the owners) is located in a charming country landscape. The breakfast prepared by Morag is delightful and the taste of milk is simply amazing. Morag, Very nice and easy going, makes you feel at home and is very... More

Both of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Malling West.

I stayed at Malling West with my sister, Mom and Dad on our first trip through the highlands. The property itself is lovely – several acres near Lake Menteith. The house is old, with three foot thick stone walls, so it has a lot of character. Morag and her husband have completely renovated and updated the building, adding space and... More
