Michael and Barbara Williams have moved from the Big House to a delightful, modern and spacious cottage nearby on the farm, with Eaglescainie Mains now the domain of their daughter's family. Some earlier visitor comments are therefore no longer relevant. My wife and I were given a very warm welcome to their beautiful new home and shown to a lovely... More

Intending visitors should bear in mind that earlier reviews relate to the former location in the Mains farmhouse. Owners Barbara & Michael Williams have relocated to a modernised and extended cottage which provides supremely comfortable accommodation with a comprehensive choice of breakfast dishes. What remains unchanged is the warm welcome together with information and advice on nearby events and attractions.... More

We've been visiting Eaglescairnie on and off for almost 20 years at Festival time. Things have changed. The old country manor farmhouse was a treat. The new cottage accommodation is also a delight....fresh, comfortable and roomy. A warm welcome as always from Barbara and Michael. Marvellous breakfasts, with haggis optional and irresistible. The city is very accessible from the east... More

My Wife and I stayed 2 nights and the hosts were friendly and gave a very warm welcome. We stayed in the newly built house and everything was First Class. I would recommend this B&B to everyone and it is a credit to Michael and Barbara.

The four of us had the absolute pleasure of staying at Eaglescairnie Mains for 2 nights in July. Nothing beats country life. The hosts Michael & Barbara were simply delightful and looked after us so well with those beautiful breakfasts and provided us with much information for our trips into Edinburgh. The rooms were immaculate and to wake up and... More

If you get into this wonderful country place and meet the owners, you will be very lucky. Four of us had a wonderful stay with Barbara and Michael Williams who looked after us immaculately. The rooms were very comfortable and we had delicious breakfasts every morning for our six days stay. The countryside and farm are lovely. I could not... More

To start with the positives, both the owners are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was lovely and the location in the middle of the countryside perfect for long walks. Unfortunately though, the room we stayed in on the third floor was pretty poor. The furniture and bedding was extremely dated, the room was dirty with stains on the bed... More

Eaglescairnie was a lovely stay for 2 nights for the 3 of us in 2 large, well decorated rooms with expansive views of the countryside. The beds were comfortable, breakfast was individually cooked and served in the conservatory and the country quiet was very welcome after being in Edinburgh. Michael took us on a walking tour and shared some of... More

We stayed for just the one night in February when doing some walking on the nearby John Muir Way. The farmhouse is a beautifully restored 3 storey 18th century farmhouse about a mile or so outside Gifford. As such, it's not really within walkable distance for the village - at least not in the dark - but is a wonderfully... More

Eaglescairnie is in a beautiful location and is a lovely old house. However we thought the rooms rather small and not always warm. We did not have breakfast in the conservatory and found the breakfast room rather small and cramped.
