This was our third visit to this stunning location and Guest House, Howard and Cordelia were the most perfect hosts as always, the food was just stunning on Saturday night and their company and helpfulness were second to none. We hope to be back for a fourth time, as this is the most relaxing place ever. With the red squirrel... More

I cannot convey too strongly how impressed my wife and I were with this wonderful guest house. We spent five glorious days there and wished it had been longer. The owners, Howard and Cordelia, are superb hosts and Howard went out of his way to ensure that our stay was as comfortable as possible. This is an old hunting lodge... More

We loved our stay here it really was an idyllic setting and would advise anyone looking for a B&B with the extra touches of a "retreat like" hotel to try Balkissock. Was completly relaxing yet within easy reach of all the sights of the area. Room and breakfast lovely.

On a golfing trip to the southeast of Scotland, I picked the Balkissock Lodge because it looked like just what I was after. How right I was! Howard and Cordilia are wonderful hosts, the rooms were smartly done up, the food, ah, the food was excellent. Cordilia made us a dinner that was second to none (get the lamb shanks... More

We had such a warm reception from Cordelia and Howard with afternoon tea served immediately upon arrival. Such beautiful and cosy accommodation, we felt instantly relaxed. We had both breakfast and our evening meals at the lodge which were delicious and of a very high standard. The lodge is perfectly situated to explore the stunning coastline of South West Scotland....
