We returned once again to the self catering apartment that we now call home from home. Everything you could possibly want is there. Everything works as well! The host Eileen and Bill could not be more accommodating nothing is ever too much trouble. They also have a second self catering apartment and excellent B and B facilities, Eileen's Scottish breakfasts... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Old Stables. Eileen and Bill are very nice and lovely hosts. All was perfect and we can fully recommend it; we would do it again. The bathroom was the largest and best equipped all over Scotland! The start of our trip to the Hebrides could not have been better!

What you didn't expect. Not an old stable!!! A very warm welcome, a nice big bathroom and even 2 additional sittingrooms (of which 1 is an oversized livingroom.) Every day you can have the breakfast you desire. Surrounded in a area with Golfcourses, old buildings and distilleries, it is a perfect point to explore this part of Scotland. If you... More

A very good standard of bed and breakfast, our host Eileen was a lovely lady who could not do enough for us. We had to leave at 05:30 hrs to get to our event venue and she offered to get up to make breakfast for us before we went !!!!! We politely declined as we thought that was unfair for... More

This house is amazing. It's huge and very tastefully decorated, historic meets modern. Our room had a four-poster bed and a spa as well as a door leading right into the beautirul garden.

We spent two nights here during our vacation to Scotland. It turned out to be the best B&B we have ever stayed at. Eileen and Bill were fantastic hosts and very welcoming.

Thank you for an excellent review. I trust the rest of your Scottish holiday was also a good experience! It looks like we made the right decision when we extended the bathroom and added a spa bath and large shower cubicle. The space seems to suit our guests. The garden is beginning to flourish in the sunshine and needs some... More

Last night of the Cateran Trail here. Huge bathroom with posh shower cabinet, easy chair and spa bath - and then the four-poster with superb mattress. Unique house, with airy breakfast room overlooking the koi and the bird-feeders! Nothing too much trouble to the no-nonsense Eileen! Truly outstanding.
