We booked this hotel by looking at the reviews on Tripadvisor and I am happy to say that it exceeded our expectations. The place is beautiful, there is so much attention to details, from each guests needs, to the decor, to the little things. The rooms are very comfortable, cozy, with as many details as a luxury hotel. The food?... More

We have just returned home from a stay at Culdearn House for the Hogmanay package plus two extra nights. A truly great experience, Bill and Sonia are fantastic hosts who could not be more helpful or attentive. Sonia's cooking is absolutely delightful, and Bill's front of house attention is wonderful. The hotel is welcoming, friendly and comfortable, and New Years... More

We (two couples) were on a 10 days business/leisure trip which started at the Glen Eagles, Sheraton Spa in Edinburgh, Fairmont Hotel in St. Andrews with many high points, enjoying the best Scotland has to offer. Suffice it to say, the Culdearn House rivaled some of our finest dining and accommodations. The owners worked tirelessly to meet and anticipate every... More

Not long after starting my hike in the morning, I fell through the trail into the peat bog. Left leg into the bog, up to my hip.... More

The owners are very obliging and welcoming. An excellent breakfast and a packed lunch of lamb and smoked salmon plus a quiche specially made for us. This accomodation cannot... More

Following the meal everyone, including the owners Sonia and William, retired to the beautiful sitting room for an after dinner drink. My partner totally surprises me and proposes.
