We really enjoyed this B&B on our coast to coast bike trip. Mark and Valerie are super friendly and helpfully. We arrived after a rainy day and our shoes were totally wet. We let them outside and after the wonderful warm shower we wanted to take them in on a warm place. We were so surprised to find our shoes... More

One of the best B&Bs we have experienced. The owners Val and Mark couldn't do enough for us, the room was spotlessly clean & comfortable, and we slept well. Mark provided a lovely breakfast. It felt like a home from home. Hope to return soon to visit family in the area.

Valerie and Mark have a little slice of paradise in Glentorets BnB. It's located in the very picturesque town of Tomintoul, along the Malt Whisky trail, within the Higlands and Cairngorm National Park. We got in about 5p and after dropping our bags walked the 7 min into town. The town is small but does boast quite a few hotels,... More

We spent 4 nights at this beautiful B&B on a 2 week trip around Scotland. Mark and Val have been extraordinary friendly and helpful. The breakfast has always been delicious in all locations we visited but this here was the best. We enjoyed it in the kitchen overlooking the garden and beautiful scenery including wildlife (sometimes even roe deer pass... More

A great place to stay in Tomintoul - really friendly and welcoming to two tired and damp mountain bikers after a long day in the saddle. Mark, the owner, even cleaned our bikes for us - way beyond the call of duty! Comfortable room and a haggis breakfast - what more can you ask? Highly recommended.

We only stayed one night but found the room comfortable, the hosts gracious and the breakfast outstanding. This is a quiet break in the Highlands ideally suited to explore the Speyside region. There is not much in walking distance, but if you're looking for a quiet retreat with a clean room and spacious bath then this is the place for... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our night at Glentorets and would highly recommend it. Mark and Valerie are warm and welcoming and very good company.

Beautiful location, very comfortable spacious room and bathroom (with a bath and a spectacular view), lovely breakfast with flexible timing, and friendly relaxed hosts. Decent wifi. We had a beautiful walk in evening sunshine around the village and saw deer, pheasants, and lapwings. Perfect stop on our way to the Highlands. PS. Food at the Glen Avon pub was awful... More

This is a wonderful place to stay. Hosts Val and Mark are delightful and very informative about the wildlife in the local area. The rooms are really comfortable and breakfast was a real treat. The house backs on to fields and woods which are full of birds, rabbits and deer.
