Nothing was too much trouble, dinner options had been booked in advance and nothing was too much trouble for them as B&B hosts. Luxurious rooms and great hospitality made our two night...

Colleith Lodge was everything we had been told to expect. Our hosts were careful to give us privacy, but were at our disposal for anything we'd want, from advice regarding our visiting the surrounding areas to choices of restaurants etc. Breakfast every morning, was a treat.
