We stayed for four nights at this lovely B&B. Andy and Liz are superb hosts - very efficient and friendly. They provided lots of information on local facilities (right down to recommending particular dishes at nearby restaurants - which were spot on!), lent us an OS map for the duration of our stay and made us feel really welcome.

We spent two very pleasant nights here recently. Liz and Andy were very welcoming and happy to provide recommendations and advice. The room was clean and comfortable although ours was a little small. Breakfast was very good too.

Only spent one night here (this time), and it was very nice. Comfortable and friendly atmosphere... lovely hosts... and a great breakfast! Everything was nice and clean, and for a single room, very spacious.

We spent two lovely nights at this very comfortable B&B. Liz and Andy were wonderful hosts, sharing with us their local knowledge. Rooms very clean and comfortable and we started each day with a hearty Scottish breakfast. Highly recommend staying here.

Loved our stay. Enjoyed the conversations we had with our hosts Liz and Andy. The furnishings in our room were perfect. Bed was super comfortable. Breakfast was very good, no waiting involved. Great suggestions on where to eat. Strongly recommend staying at Callater Lodge with its warm hospitality.

The food was great. Plenty... More
