When you first arrive you feel as though you are going to be staying in a remote countryside location. However, you quickly realise that Wemyss House is ideally located the locality. The bedrooms are more boutique hotel than bnb, big comfortable bed, very well furnished with some nice touches and a good size bathroom. Breakfasts are absolutely first class; prepared... More

Stayed one night to break a journey and were sorry not to stay longer. Our super-king room on the ground floor was unusually spacious and comfortable, with a view across fields to the Cromarty Firth. Christine was very friendly and welcoming and my wife enjoyed talking gardening with her. Breakfast was good, with a very nice selection of fruit, and... More

We stayed 1 night at this fabulous B&B and found Stuart & Christine to be the most wonderful , friendly hosts. Their attention to detail is second to none, room was excellent and spotlessly clean and the breakfast absolutely delicious. Highly recommended. Thank you!

Having joined Tripadvisor only recently, I and my husband feel we really must record our commendation for 'Wemyss House'. It has been our regular 'home from home' on visits to northern Scotland over many years. The location,the house itself, food and facilities are of a very high order - and the hosts unfailingly warm, welcoming, informative and entertaining in equal... More

Comes to something when you can't remember how many times you've visited a B&B. This one is our regular stopping place for our annual trip to Orkney. We always get the SuperKing room, with great views. The welcome feels like coming home, the trick is to know that BYO beer, wine and whiskey which allowed full enjoyment of the great... More

As regular visitors to Scotland since 2000 we knew that £120 per night was half again what most good B&Bs charge, but we figured we'd treat ourselves to a romantic splurge at this self-appointed luxury home. Unfortunately what we experienced was a very average B&B, run by a self-satisfied couple who remind at every turn that they build their own... More

Trip Advisor is a useful tool when seeking reviews, we use it ourselves. We note from your many previous Trip Advisor reviews of B&Bs/Guest Houses/Hotels, that we are not the first to receive a lengthy overblown criticism of a stay that was not to your taste and satisfaction. As owners of a B&B, we know it is difficult to please... More

This B and B is in a league of its own. I stayed here in September last year and again this year. It is a lovely house in a quiet setting and with amazing views.

We saw the reviews which said Weymss House Was the best B&B in Scotland and said "we'll be the judge of that". Well it is!!! It was fantastic, from the warm welcome, the beautiful surroundings, the decor, amenities, the food and the hosts. Everything was perfect.

Charming hosts with very comfortable accommodation. Set in a beautiful but often overlooked part of Scotland. Christine can also provide a beautifully presented evening meal. The Pictish cross stones at Nigg and Balintore are well worth a visit.

Laurelash, Owner at Wemyss House, responded to this review

Thank you for your review and mention of the Pictish stones local to this area. It is true that many people drive north and miss visiting this peninsular which has beaches, Dolphins, fishing villages, standing stones from 800AD and quiet luxury, award-winning accommodation at Wemyss House. More
