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. The owner, Morag was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the local area advising us on activities and the best places to eat in the area. The B&B itself, located in a quiet setting with stunning scenery, was very clean and comfortable and the full Scottish breakfast was amazing. We... More

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

My wife and I spent two nights in Morag's lovely home in August 2014. Morag could not have been more welcoming and our room was very comfortable, with lovely bed linen. The breakfasts were both delicious and plentiful, kept us going all day! Thank you Morag!

We stayed here last Autumn, and it was fantastic! The room was nicely decorated, very comfortable and cosy. We slept peacefully after eating a great meal locally on Morag's recommendation, and woke up to a tasty breakfast and a lovely chat too - Morag, I'm sorry it's taken so long to write this but thank you for a lovely weekend...

My wife and I stayed 3 nights at Malling West in May and it was memorable. The clean and fully carpetted house impressed us the moment when we stepped in. Our room upstairs has a good view of the beautiful garden. We slept well all nights. Thankfully the traffic was not heavy on the road just besides. However if you... More

Thank you for posting your very detailed review and for your kind comments. Can I also say a big thank you for taking the time to work out the co-ordinates for the house, particularly as you did not drive here but travelled on public transport. It was very kind of you to make such an effort, to pass the details... More
