The only thing we can say is: highest recommendation to stay there! Eileen and Chris made it a wonderful stay, the house is very nice and the breakfast was a stunner - with delicious fresh fruits and several types of cheese - something we only had there during our entire stay in the UK. Have fun in Scotland and Speyside!

We tried a few B&B throughout Scotland this time and The Elms was definitely THE best. The objective reasons being the house is beautiful, nicely maintained, the rooms & bathroom are spotlessly clean, the dining room is very very beautiful and cozy, the host would even make up our room twice a day (which I believe is rare for anything...

We stayed at The Elms in July (2 couples). We had the place to ourselves because they don't take more than 4 at a time. It was our first B&B on our trip and it couldn't have been any better! They kept in contact with us via email and greeted us with warm smiles when we arrived! They gave us... More

What a wonderful Scottish welcome we received at The Elms. Our host was warm and friendly and very helpful with information about the area as well as the local distilleries but was very respectful of our space and left us to do our thing.
