Quaint and comfortable, Argyle house, became the cherry on the top to a magnificent Horseback riding experience around Tomintoul. Dianne and Steven, the B&B owners, are exceptional people, who go out of their way to accommodate their guests and their every need.

Lovely place to stay, beds comfortable, food great, friendly people. Its in the centre of town, so close to pubs & whisky tasting! We arrived late but that was no problem to the owners. The town is in a good location to visit attractions such as the steam railway, and distilleries in the area.

We stayed there for one night, as we were on a roadtrip through the northern part of Scotland. The room was clean and tidy, beds were comfortable and the bathrom was good (incl. shower+bathtub). A bit far from the main roads and closest town of Aviemore, but absolutely a great choice of B&B. We arrived almost at night, and even... More

I stayed just one night in the B&B, but it was very cosy. Perhaps a little too cosy - the room I was in didn't have much light, and the one window looked out onto a service area rather than to the cairmgorns, and did not have an en suite, which was disappointing. However, the breakfast was lovely, the hot... More

We only stayed one night in the Argyle but were very happy with it- comfy , friendly and a very good breakfast. We were there for the Tomintoul Bike weekend and there was a place to park the bike right outside our room in the private drive. Fresh milk in the bedroom meant I really enjoyed a late-night cuppa too,... More

A very friendly and happy atmosphere greeted me as I stepped through the door soaked through from walking from Nethy Bridge. Diane is a wonderful host and after a wonderful breakfast she also made me a superb sandwich lunch at very short notice.

After getting trapped in tomintoul due to the snow we came across this lovely little B&B. The owners were very welcoming and the room was perfect for an over night stay. The breakfast was lovely and the owner helped us find an alternative way to our final destination through the snow. Couldn't have been any nicer. I highly recommend this... More

We stayed for 1 night and left hoping we would've had a chance to stay longer. Owners were very friendly.Our room was big with comfortable bed. Bathroom was huge with a good shower and plenty of warm water. Breakfast was just fabulous, lots of choices and all topped with home baked warm bread. Delicious!! There was a nice walk with... More
