Stayed in the Fairdene B&B during the summer of 2014. Beautiful little self contained cottage, the owners Lisa and Martin live in the family house next door. Lisa and Martin were on hand to advise the best walks, restaurants and other relevant local information. The cottage was spotlessly clean and the breakfasts were delicious and plentiful, private off road parking... More

We were after a room for the night but ended up in the cottage which was a real bonus. It was nice to have the extra space and all the facilities were modern. Lisa gave us a warm welcome and suggestions for dinner. In the morning she brought us a cooked breakfast. She does a great job of balancing family,... More

We recently stayed in the self catering holiday cottage at Fairdene B&B. We were warmly welcomed by our hosts. Fantastic accommodation with everything you could possibly need. Very modern and stylish and spotlessly clean. We were provided with an excellent cooked breakfast. We could not fault our stay in any way and have already booked again for next year. Thank... More

My wife and I stayed in the holiday cottage for 3 nights recently, and have to say enjoyed our stay. The cottage has an oldie world charm from the outside, but is contemporary and spotless inside. There is off-road parking and free fast Wifi available. Close by there are pubs, a fish shop, cafes and various shops. Our hosts Lisa... More

We stayed in the holiday cottage for a week in August. The cottage has been done up very modern and is lovely and clean. It was also very cosy and I can imagine lovely and warm in the winter. It is nice to be so near to the village so you can just come and go as you please. Very... More

We used the self catering cottage that it part of the B & B and it was very comfortable and well equipped. Free wifi is included and the location is delightfully quiet. Our host was very welcoming and we highly recommend this property. We have also used the B & B herre as well and it's equally good as is... More

Fairdene offers stylish accommodation at very reasonable rates. The owners knew how to make us feel at home and their attention to detail is to be commended. I loved the extra touches like heated floor in the bathroom, twix biscuits in a jar by the tea/coffee and the best bit was your own fridge with water and also a pint... More

Stayed here for 1 night during a tour of Scotland. Offroad parking was a real bonus. The house is extremely well furnished. The room was comfortable with a great view of the mountains. The bathroom was a good size, very clean and had a great shower. Only a short walk into the village. Breakfast was great with a lovely fruit... More

One of the friendliest B&Bs we've ever stayed in. Clean, comfortable, and really peaceful central location. Just about perfect!

This B&B was recommended to me via another fully booked one in the village. What a wonderful find! We were privilaged to stay in the seperate cottage at the B&B which was immaculately clean and welcoming. The B&B is right in the centre of the village and was an excellent base for heading hill walking. The couple who run the... More
