I chose the lovely Andrew's abode because of the recommendations I read on tripadvisor and I can only endorse them all, 100%. My grown up daughter and I have spent many holidays in Scotland, using both B&B and self catering. This B&B establishment has to be one of the very best we have used.
Where do I start? How about the garden as you approach the property. A riot of colour and garden ornaments ranging from butterflies, fairies, bears, teddies, squirrels, every gnome imaginable and climaxing in a full parliament of hooting owls which greets you discretely (!) when you finally arrive at the hanging basket bedecked front door. My daughter and I were in love with the place before Andrew opened the door. What a warm and friendly welcome. I am a piano player and I was ushered immediately into the guest lounge to demonstrate my prowess. It was like being welcomed back home by a favourite aunt!
The house is immaculately clean; (how does he do it?) I must comment on the table napery of which Andrew is very proud - no 2 ply Poundshop serviettes in Andrew's abode. In fact, everything in Andrew's establishment is thought out to make your stay comfortable - and memorable. However, if you have a candle aversion, I suggest you warn Andrew in advance. He LOVES candles None lit, of course....health and safety!
Breakfasts? Well......cancel your lunch plans. The fresh fruit starter is legendary. get that down you girl, before I bring your laden cooked breakfast! Organic eggs, thick bacon, local sausages, and on, and on it goes.
|No need to comment on the quality of the beds, linen, towels, bathroom accessories, they continued the theme of excellence and welcome. He even provided fresh sets of towels every day during our four day stay. Something we were not expecting.
Andrew has two lovely doggies but they are not allowed in the house, so no worries there if you a concern in that department.
We'll be back, Andrew!
