Absolutely fantastic place to stay! Linda and Jim are fantastic hosts and the swilcan suite is the best, can't wait to go back soon, location is in a nice quiet area a few minutes drive from St. Andrews centre

We visited St. Andrews in September and stayed 3 nights in Little Carron Cottage. Linda and Jim were wonderful hosts and made our stay in St. Andrews so special. We were in the suite and loved having the living room with a fridge and tea kettle as well as the outdoor space, equipped with a table. It was great to...

We returned for our fourth visit and for graduation at Univ. of St. Andrews. One was an excuse for the other but I'll not say which. The innkeepers have the right touch of making you feel as thought the cottage is your home, too, and never "kitschy" or overstated. The brisk walk or short bus ride (3 minutes) is up...

We had a small self catering apartment that was well furnished and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped and had basic cooking supplies. The location with off street parking was well placed for visiting St Andrews and Dundee which is eleven miles away. It is run by a couple who were friendly and helpful and who dealt immediately with any...

Linda and Jim were wonderful hosts who made great suggestions for restaurants and day trips. What a shame we didn't have time for some golf with Jim. Little Carron Cottage is truly a gem with it's lovely large yard. Bedrooms were very comfortable with clean and well supplied ensuite bathrooms. Breakfasts were delicious. We were fortunate to have the suite...

We booked just one night in this charming B&B at fairly short notice, and we wished it could have been longer! Just a short walk from the town centre, Little Carron Cottage is gorgeous! We were lucky enough to get the Eden Suite which we were surprised to find out has its own living room area adjoined. Linda and Jim...

This is probably the best B&B we have stayed at during our two weeks' tour of Scotland. Excellent value for money, friendly owners, comfortable and large rooms, a lovely garden. Great to explore St. Andrews and the coast. Highly recommended.

This was our 1st B&B in our 3-week journey to Scotland & Ireland! What a great way to start & get off on the right foot! Linda & Jim could not have been more helpful & supportive!

Visiting St Andrews to attend wedding of friend. Little Carron was recommended to us and we were not disappointed. Six of us stayed in extremely comfortable accommodation; two suites and one very large double room. The owners couldn't have been more helpful and the breakfast was outstanding. As I love St Andrews and surrounding area I will definitely be returning...

We spent 2 weeks at this adorable B & B which is located in a quiet neighborhood, yet it close to everything. We stayed in the Swilcan suite which has a king bed, kitchen, living room, modern bathroom, and even a small washer and dryer. Nice TV and free Wifi. The suite is spacious and immaculate.
