Four of us spent two nights here as a base for our distillery tour and can highly recommend it. The hospitality, cleanliness and comfort were all excellent. Spacious rooms with comfortable beds and clean modern bathrooms. lovely views and excellent breakfasts - the kippers were particularly impressive! Thanks to Tina and Norman for a fabulous stay!

Enjoyed a one night stay. Room was spacious and nicely appointed. Innkeepers were very helpful in providing tips on the local sites and restaurants. Nice quiet location but close to several distilleries and local textile mill.

If the picturesque country house with it's log fire and homely rooms wasn't enough for the ideal relaxing getaway in the heart of whiskey country, the hospitality shown by Norman and Tina well exceeded expectations. From catering for our culinary needs to suggesting an itinerary for the weekend, we never left wanting. The area is fantastic for distillery tours and... More

Great hospitality! Thank you Tina & Norman, Whisky, Millie and Cocco. Tasteful breakfast and dinner. We enjoyed our whisky by the fire and in good company. Beautiful surroundings, you can walk mile after mile on the countryside, quiet, beautifyl nature, lots of birds and sheep. Lovely clean rooms.

Wasn’t really sure what to expect when booking rooms at the Cardhu Country House, but I must say this is absolutely one of the very best places I’ve ever stayed at. Coming from a suite in the Gleneagles Hotel, it felt like coming home coming here! Yes, it’s not a trendy luxurious minimalstic boutique hotel. It’s an old country house... More

We hired Cardhu Country House for a week over New Year. We were greeted by Norman and shown around the house and all facilities. It is as lovely as it looks on the website, in fact probably better and very spacious. Facilities for self-catering were great (even if it took us some time to master the art of Aga!) had... More

What an amazing experience! When we walked in we instantly felt welcome.The smell of dinner was in the air & the fire was roaring. Norman made you feel right at home. The only requirement was to keep the fire going, which we were happy to oblige. If you are looking for a quiet, away from it all B&B this is... More

We walked into this charming B&B not knowing what to expect, since we had never stayed in a B&B before. While some guests chose to stay to themselves, we found some great folks who we enjoyed getting to know and with whom we spent considerable time. Tina and Norman are very gracious hosts and the home is very special destination.... More

Been meaning to write this review for some time..my husband and I did a driving/whisky tour of Scotland for new years 2012 and found ourselves in Cardhu after driving up the coast. Norman and Tina could not have been more hospitable and friendly, it made our visit. We were the only guests in the B&B and by the second day,... More
