From the moment we arrived at Craigellachie Guest House on 5 - 6 April 2015, we were made to feel at home. James and Maria were the perfect hosts. We would advise anyone that is looking for a traditional Scottish welcome, with a warm and cosy atmosphere worthy of the highlands - they should book this perfect guest house. Our... More

I stayed at Craigellachie Guesthouse with 3 friends over a weekend in winter. Maria and James gave us all a very warm and friendly welcome upon our arrival. They were very helpful in providing us with ideas of where to go and explore around the local area, and the pub recommendation for dinner on our night there was just what... More

Our first visit to Craigellachie House was in Spring 2014 and we have just returned from a early Winter 2015 visit. We stayed in another lovely room with en suite. It was cold and snowy outside but was toasty warm inside with the guest sitting room a delightful place to relax in the evening by an open fire. The breakfasts... More

We absolutely loved our time at Craigellachie over Hogmanay. The rooms were immaculate, breakfast was AMAZING and the location was great! James and Maria were fabulous hosts, so friendly and full of stories. We'll be back as soon as there's snow! Thanks again for a wonderful stay! Stuart & Julie

James and Maria were very helpful and friendly and we enjoyed our stay. We found them by accident on our way down from Inverness but next year we'll make a special trip as the accommodations were excellent and breakfast was wonderful. They are succeeding in their goal to make their b & b the best there is.

Jim and Maria were excellent hosts who made us feel at home, whilst we stayed one night touring the highlands on our motorcycles. The room was clean and tastefully decorated, the beds comfortable, and the bathroom was spotless. The cooked breakfast was superb and sourced from local businesses (with other choices available), the juice was fresh and not from concentrate,... More

We ended up in James & Maria's Craigellachie after several tryouts at Aviemore where we found no vacant room. The hosts were very welcoming (despite our late arrival, close to dark). The room was in high standards and had everything till the last item. After a good night sleep (bed was very good), we received breakfast, which was perfectly served.... More
