We were greeted by Bill, a lovely man, who showed us our room. The view from the room's verandah was amazing and Bill gave us advice as to the best places to visit that evening. In the morning the breakfast, cooked by Gill, was lovely and the other guests were chatty. The Waters Edge only takes three couples so it... More

We first visited here four years ago and rebooked because it was that good. Bill and Gill didnt disapoint, it was again superb. We did want our original room as you can sit in the bath and see the Forth but a mix up meant someone else got 'our' room. Not to worry, the room we got was spectacular. Everything... More

We recently spent two nights at Water's Edge during our 14 day road trip around the 'North Coast 500' - though with all our diversions to explore the remoter areas it became the North Coast 2000! Bill and Gill were wonderful hosts and as fellow Lancastrians we really appreciated their northern humour and hospitality. Their beautifully located B&B is sumptuously... More

We only stayed here for one night on our North Coast 500 trip but to be quite honest, I'd like to just move in. It's definitely priced at the luxury end of the market but it delivers in spades.

We stayed for one night only, but will be going back. The rooms are luxurious and thoughtfully decorated and equipped. The balcony looks over onto the water and it is large and comfortable. The garden is also lovely to explore. The proprietors Jill and Bill are extremely welcoming and the breakfast is to die for

This B&B is at the luxury end of the market. It is very clean, no dust no odours just immaculate. Above all the hosts are very genuine friendly people and really do make you feel at home. Its a brilliant quiet place to chill out.
