Hugh and Jane are the perfect hosts. Best breakfast including homemade scones, fresh fruit everyday,along with a full Scottish breakfast. It is located A half block from the 18th green of the Old Course. Next time we go to St. Andrews we will plan our trip around getting a reservation at their place.
