This B&B is just wonderful! Our hostess, Lorna, was friendly, funny and welcoming! By the time we left, we felt we had just made a new friend! We booked all three rooms for our family - all were comfy and cozy with little extra touches that made it feel like home! We ended up forgetting a piece of clothing behind... More

Lorna is an extremely friendly and helpful hostess, who made us feel very welcome in her home. She recommended and booked for us a table at Hornblowers (10 minute walk away), a superb fish restaurant. This made staying at Gourdon a complete package. If in this area again, we would return to both.

We spent here just one night but it was enough to feel completely like at home. The rooms were fabulous and really comfortable and the breakfast was delicious beyond magnificent! Lorna is a perfect householder, really friendly and willing, we projected to go bed early and leave in the first morning but both the night and the morning we lingered... More

Stayed here on a recent cycling trip, from Edinburgh to Aberdeen. Lorna is a fantastic friendly host, who keeps a clean and comfortable B&B. We had the sea view room and were lucky enough to have a clear day on arriving to enjoy the fabulous view out to sea. Room, bed and bathroom, were all great, and would recommend this... More

Lovely B & B, great welcome from Lorna. Very clean, tidy and relaxed. Nice room with a wonderful view out over the water. Plentiful and tasty breakfast. Bathroom is separate but this was not an issue. Great location for access to many of the east coast towns and villages and to get away from the hustle and bustle of life... More

Save yourself the hassle of heading up to Aberdeen to stay in a B&B or hotel, just stay a few miles down south in Gourdon. Lovely host, lovely view, and a quiet, scenic bit of Scottish coastline, the best B&B we visited in our trip.

This is the first time I’ve used a guest house for business in years and to be honest I was wary as I’m so programmed to stay in hotels for work that I didn’t know how this was going to work out for me. The main reason for picking The Gourdon Schoolhouse was its location to where I had a... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Gourdon Schoolhouse is situated in a stunning location with spectacular views just off the A92 between Montrose and Stonehaven. It is within easy reach of Aberdeen, Dundee, Arbroath, Carnoustie and Royal Deeside. We have 2 double rooms (one facing over the sea) on the ground floor and 1 single on the upper floor. All rooms have TV/DVD, tea/coffee making facilities and hairdryer. We pride ourselves on cleanliness and comfort. Plenty off-street parking and further undercover parking for 2/3 bikes. Also secure storage for other equipment ie golf clubs, walking/fishing gear. We offer a relaxed and friendly atmosphere where we hope people arriving as guests will leave as friends. There is a large garden to enjoy the sunshine with a glass of wine or a sunlounge for if it's cooler. Guests are also welcome to join the family and friends in their private lounge where a coal/log fire burns in the colder weather. Breakfast can be cooked, or a lighter alternative, but whatever you have your view will be the same as the dining room looks over the village, harbour and North Sea. The village has a pub, shop, fish & chip shop with restaurant and a hairdresser. Nearby Inverbervie which is within walking distance has couple of good places for bar meals and an excellent Indian restaurant. Visit nearby Dunnottar Castle or one of the many Nature reserves, or perhaps the Air Heritage Centre. Whatever you like to do, you know you can chill out when you get back. ... more   less
