We just returned from a 3 week road trip in Scotland staying in 7 different B&B locations. We stayed at Coynachie Guest House for 5 nights and regrettably have to rate the Guest House as the least desirable accommodation. We stayed on the top floor of Fiona and David's home and requested twin room accommodations. The room definitely had two twin beds, child size, compared to other homes where we stayed. The mattresses were the worst that we slept on during our vacation. The bathroom was not en suite, you needed to cross the landing and enter into another area. The bathtub in the bathroom looks appealing but is too high off the floor and when taking a shower the water spouts all over the floor as there is no exterior protection. Be aware: slippery when wet...! Of all the hospitable host/esess we found David and Fiona to be the most aloof. We adored Scotland and the people and will DEFINITELY return.
