We stayed here for one night to give us break on a long journey up to Scotland and were very pleased with our accommodation. David was extremely helpful, carrying our luggage into the house and up the stairs, and took the time to have a chat with us in the evening. Next morning the breakfast was superbly cooked by him...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Fern Villa Guest House. It's an older picturesque building that has been nicely maintained and renovated with new windows, updated interiors and en-suite baths. Off-street parking is provided across the street. Rooms are on the smallish size, as can be expected in older buildings, but they're nicely equipped with a queen bed, TV,... More

Really nice, spacious room and delicious breakfast! We arrived around dinner time after a long walk and the owners booked us a table at a local pub which was a short walk away. Really enjoyed our visit.

We had a lovely stay here, and couldn't find anything to complain about. The house itself is a charming stone cottage. Our room was very cozy and comfortable, and had a nice view towards the Loch and the mountains. It was probably the most peaceful sleep I've ever had. David and Catherine were the most gracious hosts! And of course,... More
