Stayed one night at the Glentorets Bed and Breakfast and was greeted with a warm welcome by Mark and Val. They were extremely hospitable, kind and helpful -- not to mention that they served us a delicious breakfast! It was the perfect start to our vacation through the Highlands. Through their dining room windows, you could see a beautiful view... More

This was our first stop on a cycle trip that we called off next day due to snow ! Warm welcome by Val & once bikes put away were shown a very spacious & clean room. Lovely ensuite & good shower. Never a good sleeper & anxious about snow that had fallen ! But certainly cosy night. Breakfast was fantastic... More

We reached Tomintoul by night fall after a wonderful but lengthy drive through the highlands. I was worried that we would arrive too late but our hosts were very gracious and we found clean and comfortable accommodations and a full breakfast the next morning. We had a short but very pleasant stay. I wish we could have stayed longer.

I stayed overnight during a cycling tour. I am vegetarian. There was secure storage for the bike and a fantastically comfortable stay for me. The room was immaculate and the evening meal (vegetarian option) was superb. Val and Mark are a lovely couple and I felt very welcome. This was the best B&B I stayed in during my holiday and...

I was initially put off by the somewhat draconian instruction that check-in had to be completed by 20:00, or else! Thankfully there was no need whatsoever to worry. Val and Mark are excellent hosts and provide a very warm welcome. The room was large, airy, clean and warm. There was a shared bathroom, but this posed no problem. It is... More

Pitch up after an epic off-road mtb tour in the Cairgorms and Val didn't finch at the wet and muddy sight on the doorstep. Very friendly and welcoming and the massive breakfast in the morning did a great job of powering the legs back to Blair Athol. Bike was stored securely in the garage and the quality power shower did... More

The Glentorets is a clean tidy and friendly B&B. It is well situated in Tomintoul on a quiet parallel street to the main street, with easy and close access to all the restaurants and shops in town. The hosts are great and very attentive to giving you a good stay. Definitely a return ticket :-)

I visited Val & Mark a second time and it was for sure not the last time. A stay there is definately more than using a B&B. It is like visiting friends. They both live what they do with all passion and it is visible in every little thing and every single moment that they love it.

Staying here whilst visiting Glenlivet MTB trails. It has been brilliant. The rooms are beautiful, the location is perfect. Val and Mark who run this B and B could not be more welcoming and helpful. A brilliant place to stay! It's first class.

Glentorets has become one of the B&B's we "always" do when we are in Scotland. Great rooms, a great breakfast where you can make you own choices, lovely people. They are always happy to see us and we are always happy to see them! If you are staying there, don't forget to ask for a packed lunch (great as well).... More
