I have just come across the reviews for this amazing house and just wanted to add my experiences. I had the pleasure staying in this place in midsummer and would love to return with my partner. It remains the only B&B I have stayed in where I received a 'phone call following my email enquiry - and then realised part-way...

Reading the other reviews has made me smile, bringing back memories of stays that Will Self described as "putting up with the laird", although the laird himself is intelligent, interesting and charming and can be relied upon for stimulating after dinner conversation, while anecdotes about the Raj or the Red Arrows (with photos, the ancient rifles and tiger skin featured...

In all my years of travelling I can never remember counting down the minutes until I could leave a hotel, then punching the air with joy as I left the hotel premises, relieved at last to have escaped ... that was until my visit to Buness House.
