Came from the north and arrived in the lovely village of Tomintoul. Denise, our very friendly landlady, set us up in a great room with large bath room and nothing missing. Breakfast was super and we had 5 cocked options to chose from (all cocked by Denise husband). We got great tips on activities and very pleased with the options... More

Very impressive hospitality and customer service. Super friendly and professional owners. Was visiting as part of a horseback riding group. The Argyle House saw to feeding us three times a day (packed lunched) and did an amazing and creative job. Helpful in every way. The facility is very nice and comfortable. It really shows how much the owners care about... More

We are just leaving a fabulous week at the Argyle Guest House. The hosts were wonderful and attentive.The breakfast was a treat each morning with wonderful food a very good coffee. The rooms were very comfortable with plenty of blankets for chilly highland nights. There were plenty of outlets to charge our devices. The en-suite was clean.

I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Argyle during a equestrian holiday. From the warm welcome we received to a very fond farewell at the end of the week, we were incredibly well looked after. Diane is an exceptional hostess, and Steve is an amazing chef; our meals were truly excellent. Our room and en-suite bathroom were clean... More

Our first stop on our Scotland trip was to Argyle House and we couldn't ask for much more. Centrally located to the Highland distilleries, circled by several great pubs and restaurants and the friendliest hosts you'd want to meet. The beds were comfortable and we wanted for nothing. Make sure you take full advantage of the breakfast the next morning.... More

Our party of 4 Mountain bikers arrived at 8.15pm after a 115k cycle that day. We were quickly shown around, bikes secured and breakfast orders taken. We even had offers of mechanical assistance for a tyre problem. This level of organisation was exactly what we needed to enable us to shower and get out for food. The rooms were spacious... More

The guest house was very good in every aspect. Room was spacious and very clean, especially the washroom. Toilet scrubbed and sanitized daily. Breakfast was good and host went... More

If you’re looking for an authentic experience in the Scottish Highlands, Argyle House is the place to stay. Nestled in the small village of Tomintoul, this B &B has all the charm you could want. I was there on an equestrian ride, but owners Diane and Steven expertly hosted bikers and hikers traveling on the Speyside Way. Tomintoul is the... More
