The b&b had nicely appointed rooms, but I felt somewhat uneasy with the attitude demonstrated by the owner, Michael. Maybe I just caught him on an "off" day, since other reviewers had a different experience. He appeared to be friendly, but underneath his smile was more than a hint of arrogance and aggressiveness in his communication style. Arrive as a stranger, leave as a friend sounds nice, but in reality, it felt insincere. Example, I remarked that the room was very nice, trying to pay him a compliment, and he quickly responded back, "yes, of course it's nice, this is a 4 star b&b, what did you expect?" Another example, when he asked me what I wanted for breakfast, I said eggs and bacon, and he quickly responded back in an abrupt (borderline nasty) manner, "you get one egg." It wasn't so much what he said, but the manner in which he spoke to me. During my holiday in Scotland, I generally found b&b owners to be genuinely warm and welcoming. This establishment lacked the genuiness and warmth I found elsewhere.
