We stayed at several B&Bs during our recent tour of Scotland and Ireland. This was our first and they certainly set a very high standard for the rest of our trip. The grounds were lovely, the room was very well appointed and the duvet was especially sumptuous. A minor housekeeping incident was brought to our attention by Alison. She immediately took care of it and was very apologetic for the oversight by their housekeeping staff. A few moments after she left our room, she returned with a chilled bottle of wine as an expression of apology. It certainly was very generous of them and we did enjoy the wine. There also was a beautiful tray with refreshments including a homemade treat. (incidentally, this is the only place we stayed where a homemade treat was added to the traditional tea/coffee tray). The breakfast was also the best we experienced in our travels. The dining room was lovely, very welcoming and guests were friendly without being overly involved. The food was outstanding. I cannot recommend this B&B enough. It was one of the highlights of our trip!!!
