Alison is adorable, she make me feel like if I was at my own home. The location is perfect, very close from the train station and the there is a bus stop right in front of the house. The breakfast was delicious :) I 100% recommend it, and I will definitely go back.

Hi Alison here! I read this review and I'm not sure the start and end go together as I'm a wee bit confused! I appreciate all the lovely things you have said but I can't understand the "Thrown out..." piece of writing.I wonder if this was meant for another review? I can't through anyone out (not unless they have been...

We had a very nice stay at Woodvale. We were in the "attic" family room which is the room we had read complaints about. Yes, the ceilings are sloped so in areas of the room you need to be mindful of where you were but for us it was not a problem. The room was clean, the bathroom adequate, and...

We arrived very wet from our cycle ride but were still greeted with enthusiasm and friendliness. Our hostess offered to wash and dry our clothes which was really appreciated. Best porridge in Scotland, secure place to lock the bikes. A very good choice.

We arrived a little early in the afternoon and Allison didn't answer the door. This gave us a chance to walk the 1/4 mile to town and look around. Allison was there when we returned. She put in a nice size room on the first floor. Allison suggested three local restaurants for dinner. Breakfast the next morning was large and...
