Testimonials

What a wonderful bed and breakfast. Linda and Neale really care about their establishment and were so welcoming and friendly. Set in beautiful gardens. Our room was very comfortable and extremely clean. We will definitely be back for longer next time.

Tripadvisor reviewer, stayed May 2018

We stayed here for just one night but would happily have stayed longer. The accommodation is luxurious and faultless with a first class welcome and service offered by Neale and Linda. We were touring the NC 500 route, and the location, a minute off the A9 but in a quiet haven of peacefulness is perfect. It is also very modestly priced considering the quality and service offered. 
And then, after a peaceful nights sleep it is time for breakfast. To begin the day, Fresh milk will be waiting outside your door about an hour before breakfast so we could make an early drink - we really appreciated this, so much better than the little uht cartons. The breakfast spread was extensive - cereals, fresh bread, cake, fruit, yogurts and a cooked to order hot choice. I opted for the full Scottish, my husband had smoked salmon and scrambled egg, all served with hot toast. It was delicious. Thank you both for a very enjoyable stay - you deserve to be fully booked all summer

We travel extensively.. This is the best B & B in Scotland. The owners go out of their way to look after you. The accommodation is clean and well appointed. I would recommend then with no hesitation.
