This is a little gem of a B&B if like us you are making a trip from England up to the borders and wish to stop half way. A great spot just outside of Edinburgh, the owners are lovely and the rooms beat our expectations of good B&B accommodation. The breakfast was lovely and we overlooked some beautiful countryside.
What adds to this B&B is there is actually a half built castle behind the house, built in I believe the 15th or 16th century. Arriving at night we couldn't see it, but then woke up to see it and the lady of the B&B told us all about the history. Would absolutely recommend this to anyone!
