“Fabulous Hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Richard and Sally, the hosts at Carra Beag, are very welcoming and Sally cooks a lovely breakfast. Talking of the breakfasts there is a great choice of cooked food and it is all fresh and locally produced.

Rooms 1 and 3 overlook the garden and the hills at the front of the house. Room 3 is old wordly with a chandelier to boot. The room is spacious enough and the shower is good and hot. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. The flat screen TV had a good picture and there was free wifi throughout the property. Reception can be poor in this part of the world but there were no problems at Carra Beag.

The only hiccup was that hair dryers are not supplied. Luckily I borrowed one from a friend staying nearby.

I have never stayed anywhere where port and chocolates were left in the lounge for guests to have of an evening. A real fire in the lounge complements the ambience.

There is also a good sized on site car park and a walk down through the garden brings you to the main road and a 3 minute walk to the shops, bars and restaurants.

Sit on the sun terrace with a cool drink, if you are lucky enough to catch a hot day.
We would recommend this guest house to anyone.

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor are larger. Wide staircase to the first floor.

We chose this due to good reviews. On arrival the first impressions were a little disappointing as some decorative work is required externally and internally. Having spoken to the friendly owner who took over in November 2012 he has plans to do the required work and unless you are fussy about "new" then don't be put off..

Once in and settled I have to say that the room was cosy and homely and comfortable. No bath but a large new looking shower cubicle.

Breakfast was cooked to order with a choice of fresh fruit, cereal and yoghurt as well as the cooked option.

We would be happy to stay here again.

The location was good with access down through the garden to the car park near the tourist information and onto the main road through the town. There is also off road parking at the guest house.

Spent two nights here recently in one of the attic rooms. The room was basic and its decor a bit shabby. However, it was clean, comfortable and cosy. There was lots of choice for breakfast. Recommended.

Staff were very welcoming and friendly, breakfast was sublime, great choice of cooked goods if that's your thing, which it should be. The room was cosy and utilitarian, although couldn't get internet access at the very top due to weak wifi signal; not a problem though as the tv had plenty of trash to rot our brains with. Great price and location, you will not regret staying here. We didn't. Also: go to the Moulin Inn.

Room Tip: We had one of the top ones, which was too high up to get internet wifi, so avoid that if internet ac...

We spent 2 nights there in the beginning of December. Really well maintained place! Clean, warm and cozy! Convenient location! Great hospitality, huge, fresh breakfast! Old house with history and tranquil atmosphere for the vintage lovers! The owner had some quite interesting stories :) Highly Recommended!

Spent two night in the beautiful countryside around Pitlochry. Hosts were welcoming and friendly. They went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed. Attic room small but adequate. Breakfast was excellent and offered a variety of options. Warm and cosy lounge to relax in in the evening. We will be back!

We stayed inthe four poster room, which was overall fab!!! View is amazing & the bathroom(with no bath, was a little disappointed) is lovely, large shower compartment. Service was 1st class, very welcoming & Helen gave is good tips for our hike. Four poster room is great apart from the mattress was a little too firm for my liking, a floorboard at the door was wonky & stubbed my toe twice & there was a strange gurgling noise in the morning, think it was other rooms using their bathrooms. Breakfast was amazing, great choice. Will definately be back!!!!!
