What a find! We thoroughly enjoyed our one night's stay at Wemyss House. It's set in lush countryside, down a single track road, but you start relaxing the moment you turn into the drive. From the warm welcome from Christine, the delicious homemade cake and tea/coffee served in the stunning sun room, we knew we had found ourselves a special... More

This was our second visit to Weymss House and knowing we would be visiting the area there was no doubt about where we would stay. Weymss House is, in our opinion, one of the best, B&Bs in Scotland. From the moment you arrive you are made to feel very welcome by Stuart and Christine and sitting in the sun room... More

We have really enjoyed another winter break at Wemyss House, this time with sunny weather ! Everything excellent as ever ! This time we took a trip to Aviemore to see the reindeers and a leisurely trip around the lock.

A very warm welcome greeted us on our first winter visit to Wemyss House. A hot steaming latte and home-made cake on arrival were delicious, while we took in the fabulous view across the bay to the snow covered hills. Then a little later as we chatted round the woodburner we were treated to a stunning sunset. The rooms are... More

Thank you for your review of 'Winter Wemyss'. Yes it is a different experience during the colder months when snow lies on the mountains and the air is very clear. So glad you enjoyed the lattes, cake and chatting by the fire on your winter break. Hope to see you both at Wemyss House again in the not too distant... More

We had a lovely stay at Wemyss House, which is in a lovely part of Scotland. The property is beautifully maintained and furnished and Stuart and Christine are very welcoming. A comfortable bed, a spotless bathroom and an excellent breakfast - what more could you ask for?

I stayed here at the end of summer and it is one of the best B&Bs I have stayed in. A lovely house in a delightful location. Stuart and Christine were most welcoming. The bedroom and en suite were absolutely spotless and the breakfast excellent. I shall return next year.

Thank you for your review of Wemyss House. As you say our location, less than ten minutes from the A9 north, is ideal for guests. Rural, peaceful, and with a sea view, yet near enough to all the places you want to visit. We very much look forward to welcoming you back to Wemyss House in 2015 during your summer... More

It's always a pleasure to welcome returning guests to Wemyss House. It is good to know you enjoy all the 'extras' we have included at Wemyss House and thanks for the compliments about the food too.

Beautiful setting Beautiful food. Beautiful room. Beautiful hosts. Perfect. This is our second visit to Wemyss House and it is well worth the long drive. Home made cakes on arrival and a cup tea whenever we arrived back from our long drives.

Such a wonderful place to be. The hospitality of Wemyss House was easy going, warm and welcoming. The breakfast was excellent, the house is beautiful and the bedroom was incredibly comfortable. We loved the Scottish highlands and Wemyss House just made everything even better. I feel we were very lucky to have found such a special place.
