We love when Carol comes to stay as she 'appreciates' Derek'smusical renditions on his harmonica after breakfast. We are very lucky that we have a tremendous repeat business which means that we must be doing something right! Don't take too long to make a return trip from Portugal to Bonnie Scotland. More

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights over New Year and had a lovely time. The room was clean and comfortable, the breakfasts were very good and hearty - Elizabeth made sure that my husband had gluten and dairy free options. Finally, Elizabeth and Derek were an absolute delight - super friendly, chatty and made us feel very welcome.

I like meeting people wherever I travel in the world...and I absolutely love meeting wonderful people like Elizabeth and Derek. They are what separates the Ashcroft from all the other 4 Star B&Bs in the area. If you leave there feeling bitter or hungry, then we did not stay at the same place. I would like to again say thanks... More

We stayed at this B & B on the recommendation of a local friend and were not disappointed. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The bathroom is small but has a great shower. The breakfast is superb and it is easy to eat far too much! The owners are very helpful and cheerful. This is a great choice of where... More
