My husband and I stayed here over the late August bank holiday weekend in 2013. The property is beautiful and our room had all the comforts we're used to with the charms we hoped for from a Scottish B&B. The owners could not have been nicer. The breakfast was selection was impressive. I still haven't found a better bowl of porridge. As we were checking out the owners gave us a quick tour of the other rooms in the house as we were the last guests leaving. It was a treat to see all the work they've done on the property and hear how they'd collected everything to decorate the home. Loved the Caramel bars left in the room too!
