As regular visitors to Scotland since 2000 we knew that £120 per night was half again what most good B&Bs charge, but we figured we'd treat ourselves to a romantic splurge at this self-appointed luxury home. Unfortunately what we experienced was a very average B&B, run by a self-satisfied couple who remind at every turn that they build their own...

Trip Advisor is a useful tool when seeking reviews, we use it ourselves. We note from your many previous Trip Advisor reviews of B&Bs/Guest Houses/Hotels, that we are not the first to receive a lengthy overblown criticism of a stay that was not to your taste and satisfaction. As owners of a B&B, we know it is difficult to please...

This B and B is in a league of its own. I stayed here in September last year and again this year. It is a lovely house in a quiet setting and with amazing views. I was welcomed into their home again by Christine and Stuart and was given the same large room with ensuite bathroom, both spotlessly clean and...

We saw the reviews which said Weymss House Was the best B&B in Scotland and said "we'll be the judge of that". Well it is!!! It was fantastic, from the warm welcome, the beautiful surroundings, the decor, amenities, the food and the hosts. Everything was perfect.

Charming hosts with very comfortable accommodation. Set in a beautiful but often overlooked part of Scotland. Christine can also provide a beautifully presented evening meal. The Pictish cross stones at Nigg and Balintore are well worth a visit.

Thank you for your review and mention of the Pictish stones local to this area. It is true that many people drive north and miss visiting this peninsular which has beaches, Dolphins, fishing villages, standing stones from 800AD and quiet luxury, award-winning accommodation at Wemyss House.

What a find! We thoroughly enjoyed our one night's stay at Wemyss House. It's set in lush countryside, down a single track road, but you start relaxing the moment you turn into the drive. From the warm welcome from Christine, the delicious homemade cake and tea/coffee served in the stunning sun room, we knew we had found ourselves a special...

This was our second visit to Weymss House and knowing we would be visiting the area there was no doubt about where we would stay. Weymss House is, in our opinion, one of the best, B&Bs in Scotland.

A very warm welcome greeted us on our first winter visit to Wemyss House. A hot steaming latte and home-made cake on arrival were delicious, while we took in the fabulous view across the bay to the snow covered hills. Then a little later as we chatted round the woodburner we were treated to a stunning sunset. The rooms are...

Thank you for your review of 'Winter Wemyss'. Yes it is a different experience during the colder months when snow lies on the mountains and the air is very clear. So glad you enjoyed the lattes, cake and chatting by the fire on your winter break. Hope to see you both at Wemyss House again in the not too distant...

I stayed here at the end of summer and it is one of the best B&Bs I have stayed in. A lovely house in a delightful location. Stuart and Christine were most welcoming. The bedroom and en suite were absolutely spotless and the breakfast excellent. I shall return next year.

Thank you for your review of Wemyss House. As you say our location, less than ten minutes from the A9 north, is ideal for guests. Rural, peaceful, and with a sea view, yet near enough to all the places you want to visit. We very much look forward to welcoming you back to Wemyss House in 2015 during your summer...
