My husband and I stayed at Braeside for one night in mid-July, while visiting St Andrews. Margaret and James were lovely hosts, very welcoming and accommodating. I'm only sorry that we couldn't stay longer! (We had to leave to catch our train before the normal breakfast was served, so Margaret set some fruits, juice, toast for us the night before.)... More

James and Margret were lovely hosts, I'd never been to St. Andrews before and so they helped me navigate the town with maps and other info. The room was clean and comfortable and very cosy! In the morning my breakfast was given to me almost as soon as I sat down and what great food! It really set me up... More

James and Margaret are wonderful hosts. the b&b is extremely comfortable and clean. the food was excellent and cooked to order. they have a wealth of knowledge of the area and were spot on with local recommendations and setting up our golf tee times. we were treated as family and can't wait to return. I highly recommend this b&b.

We enjoyed the hospitality of James and Margaret for 5 nights earlier this week. They are charming hosts and run a spotlessly clean and tidy b & b where we were very comfortable and relaxed. Breakfasts are to a good standard and are prepared to order for each guest. Access to the upstairs bedrooms is up quite steep stairs, so... More

Best stay of 10 days in Scotland. Beds, bath, and breakfasts superb. Margaret & James shared expertise and opinions in lively conversations. Interesting fellow guests at breakfast. Convenient to downtown, bus station, golf. Highly recommended by seasoned travelers who would have like to stay longer with the Yules. A CLASSY above trendy or quaint hotel.
