What a welcome- we arrived to tea and cakes! We stayed in a spacious en-suite room with a great view to spot the local deer wildlife. The owner was extremely friendly and happy to help in giving us suggestions on what to see and do. The collection of OS maps, turned out to be invaluable in deciding on a walk... More

We stayed just for one night on our way to the north. We had previously spent two nights here and it was just as good as before. Quiet area, great night's sleep and excellent wifi reception. Trish is friendly and helpful with travel and sightseeing advice.

This is a lovely little guest house in a superb location. The room was spacious, comfortable and spotless and the breakfast was excellent. Trish was very helpful and when we had to cut our stay short because of a family crisis could not have been more understanding and considerate.

Booked at the last minute when we decided to do the Aviemore 10k, and we weren't disappointed. Trish, the owner was very friendly, helpful and couldn't do enough. Brilliant room, clean, bright and airy with a great view over the garden, and the breakfast was huge! Home made bread, loads of cereals, fruit, and a hearty cooked breakfast if you... More

Would definitely recommend this B&B. Trish was the perfect host and from the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome. Large pleasant guest rooms, comfortable beds, heaters to take the chill off on a cool september evening and breakfasts that we looked forward to every morning.Looking forward to visiting there again in the not too distant future.

We are a family of 5 and use this B&B as a base to visit various local attractions. The owner could not have been more helpful or considerate and gave us updates on weather and what was happening locally, including recommending a couple of excellent restaurants. B&B itself was very warm and comfortable and the breakfasts were amazing.

There was a welcoming pot of tea with biscuits, always a bonus when walking. We were lucky to have the space of the family room,all very comfy. Breakfast was excellent with fresh... More
