I've stayed there a few times now, and there is no other place I'd rather stay. Eileen is like a mother to us. She always make sure that we are ok. The food is always very good and tasty. The bed is very good as well, I sleep at least as good there as I do at home :)

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...

Chris and Eileen were so warm and hospitable, we felt absolutely at home. Our room was very comfortable, private, had all the amenities we could want, including a comfy plush bath robe and... More

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
