we had a very pleasant time at Laurel B&B. I loved the homely feel of both the bedroom and the "living room", where an excellent breakfast (Full Scottish with a great variety of choices) was served. Gerry and his wife were super friendly and helpful. We also enjoyed biscuits and tea in our very room (ready each afternoon).
