The accommodation was comfortable and the breakfasts - especially the hash browns and scrambled eggs - were the best I have ever had! We plan to visit Dunoon again sometime and... More

I stayed here for 6 weeks of my 8 week diving course and I enjoyed it! I had viewed other places and chose The Craigieburn over other places due to Tjapko's and Jennie's wonderful personalities, always ready with a laugh and a helping hand! They have a particular love for Scotland and are quite knowledgeable. They are also used to... More

I stayed here during my diving course in Dunoon. My first impression of the Dutch owners was not very good at all. I was read a list of rules and restrictions and I didn't feel like they appreciated my business at all. They have a dog that barks loudly, noisy single glazed windows, the tumble dryer shakes the whole property... More

I spent 4 weeks in the Craigieburn Guest house during my diving course in the Professional Diving Academy. I had a really good welcome from Djapko, the owner, and he drove me to the school the first day. Quiet place and really good scottish breakfasts.
