We stayed two nights at Craigellachie Guest House and I only wish we could have stayed longer! Maria & James are exceptional hosts and made us feel right at home while visiting the Highlands for the first time. I eat a vegan diet and thoroughly enjoyed my breakfast. Our room was cute, cozy, and quiet and had a nice private... More

We had a lovely stay here whilst bird watching in the Highlands. The room was comfortable, the breakfast excellent and the hosts very welcoming. James explained the importance of his spurtle and how it helped him compete in the International Porridge competition. If you ask him nicely he might show it to you! Lovely setting, nice people - what more... More

My wife and I spent one night here in May 2015. The room was relatively small but it was clean and quiet and our hosts were amazing! They went out of their way to accommodate us and arrange a late breakfast as my wife really needs her sleep to help with a medical condition. They even helped us open our... More

Lovely, friendly B &B with a delicious Scottish breakfast and great location. The bridge in the village is really pretty and worth going to see, and we had a nice dinner next door at the friendly Cairn Hotel.

We stayed for a night, along with my brother and sister in law. The guesthouse was comfy, clean and good size en-suite rooms. Welcoming atmosphere in the house and a decent local pub almost next door. The owners were really friendly and chatty, and the breakfast was yummy. Couldn't fault a thing, well worth a stopover.

My four-night stay at Craigellache simply could not have been better. The guest house itself is extremely cosy and welcoming and it's well presented without any of that ineffably naff "tweeness" or pretence that seems to infect a lot of B&Bs. My room was perfect with all the facilities present and working as they should and I had four wonderfully... More
