This guest house is one of the best places I have stayed in, it's immaculate clean with high quality fixtures and fittings, great staff and a good quality breakfast, would put a lot of hotels to shame. Plenty of parking and easy motorway access

Stayed one night on our way to the Highlands. We were very impressed by the property. Our en-suite bedroom would not have been out of place in a 5 star hotel. The owners have converted and maintained the property really well. The staff were very good and the breakfast enjoyable. You are very near to the main road and the... More
