James and Marie are very warm and friendly hosts who made us feel so welcome on our recent trip to Scotland. Our rooms were clean and comfortable, breakfast was amazing! We got plenty of good advice about touring the region. We will definitely come back here again.

I visited the Craigellachie Guest House last week while visiting Scotland. The home is very cozy and warm and all the rooms are neat and clean. The breakfast served was superb (homemade and delicious!). To top it all off, the host and hostess, James and Maria, were so incredibly friendly and helpful during our entire stay. I would highly recommend... More

We were so pleased that we chose to stay for 5 nights at the Craigellachie Guest House. The owners James and Maria are extremely friendly and helpful and their attention to detail is outstanding! Our room was very comfortable and well equipped, and the breakfast was varied, plentiful and very well cooked. We would definitely choose to stay there again... More

Have just spent a night at Craigellachie when attending a wedding this weekend. We were made to feel very welcome. The rooms were clean and very comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. Well worth staying here to travel round the Highlands.

I found my room at the Craigellachie Guest House through the tourist information in Dunkled and on a very short notice, too. I had a very warm welcome on my arrival by James and Mary and I had the best breakfast here on my tour through Scotland (I'm from Germany). The place is very well looked after and so I... More

Stayed for two nights whilst on a golfing outing, excellent hosts, we were made to feel very welcome, the rooms were very comfortable although small, and the breakfast great. We will use this guest house next year whilst playing on the 'Senior Circuit'. Thank you to James and Maria for being such good hosts. Peter Stallard.

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!

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.
