My wife and I stayed here for one night during our Scotland vacation and came away impressed. We stayed in a room with two single beds and an ensuite bathroom. The bathroom is split into 2 rooms with the shower in one room and the sink and toilet in another. Both rooms are spotless and the water pressure was fantastic. The only suggestion I would make would be to add some type of rack in the shower so you don't have to place your toiletries on the shower floor. The bedroom itself was large, clean, with comfortable beds and linens. Heather also leaves water and some tasty shortbread treats to snack on. When we told Heather her restaurant suggestion didn't quite work out as hoped, she insisted we join her, Neil and the other guests for apple cake in the kitchen. It was very thoughtful not to mention delicious. The breakfast was also good and served in a very nice dining room. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and Neil & Heather's hospitality.
