We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Greenhead of Arnot in August. Hosts Maggie and Malcolm were very welcoming, and were able to provide us with useful information on the surrounding area. Their elegant home is located on a large farm, with opportunities for pleasant country walks across the rolling fields. An evening walk up the hill behind their home afforded great views of Kinross and Fife. Our room was large, very attractively furnished and immaculately clean, with an incredibly comfortable king size bed. Breakfasts were very nicely prepared and offered a wide choice. At our request, Maggie prepared a delicious evening meal with locally sourced ingredients, including fresh lamb. We can highly recommend Greenhead of Arnot as a wonderful place to stay.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Greenhead of Arnot is a Fife farmhouse B&B that dates from about 1840, with additions in 2000, which have made the house spacious and modern; ideal for the country house bed and breakfast business which Malcolm and Maggie Strang Steel have developed there. The farmhouse can be found on the south slopes of the Lomond Hills on the border of Fife and Kinross-shire and is situated within 590 acres of farmland and woodland, surrounding a twenty five acre reservoir. These provide a variety of bird life in the woods and on the reservoir, enjoyable walks and magnificent views across the Firth of Forth. There is trout fishing available on the farm by arrangement.Greenhead is not just a place to stay for what it can offer itself. There is something for everyone within an hours drive: the Edinburgh Festival, the beaches of the Fife coast, golf at St. Andrews, Gleneagles and numerous other courses, castles in Edinburgh, Stirling, Blair Atholl and Glamis, and fine scenery wherever you go.The bedrooms have very comfortable beds, and an excellent selection of books and TV. Breakfast is served in the dining room – porridge, cereals, fruit and superb locally-sourced eggs, bacon and sausages. A three or four course dinner, including produce from the garden, farm and other local shops can be requested in advance. Maggie loves to cook and uses fresh and seasonal foods throughout the year whenever possible. Guests can relax with their afternoon tea by the log fire in the drawing room or sit in the summer sunshine in the garden enjoying the roses.Maggie and Malcolm enjoy having guests to stay and helping them to find all that is on offer locally and throughout Scotland.
