We've been visiting Eaglescairnie on and off for almost 20 years at Festival time.
Things have changed. The old country manor farmhouse was a treat. The new cottage accommodation is also a delight....fresh, comfortable and roomy.
A warm welcome as always from Barbara and Michael.
Marvellous breakfasts, with haggis optional and irresistible.
The city is very accessible from the east side, and so we find it works well to combine this peaceful country location with our days in the bustle of Edinburgh.
Absolutely 5 stars from us.

My Wife and I stayed 2 nights and the hosts were friendly and gave a very warm welcome. We stayed in the newly built house and everything was First Class. I would recommend this B&B to everyone and it is a credit to Michael and Barbara.

The four of us had the absolute pleasure of staying at Eaglescairnie Mains for 2 nights in July. Nothing beats country life. The hosts Michael & Barbara were simply delightful and looked after us so well with those beautiful breakfasts and provided us with much information for our trips into Edinburgh. The rooms were immaculate and to wake up and look out over the farm paddocks of a morning.......well it just doesn't get any better. Also directed us to the Goblin Ha hotel in nearby Gifford for our evening meal. It was so good we went there both nights! Michael & Barbara have a very special place and we would love to come back. Trust Michael enjoyed his 4 days at the British Open in Muirfield.

If you get into this wonderful country place and meet the owners, you will be very lucky. Four of us had a wonderful stay with Barbara and Michael Williams who looked after us immaculately. The rooms were very comfortable and we had delicious breakfasts every morning for our six days stay. The countryside and farm are lovely. I could not recommend a stay more highly - that is if you can get in!

To start with the positives, both the owners are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was lovely and the location in the middle of the countryside perfect for long walks.
Unfortunately though, the room we stayed in on the third floor was pretty poor. The furniture and bedding was extremely dated, the room was dirty with stains on the bed clothes and there was cobwebs in various places. The room was very cold on arrival and it was easy to see why as the sash windows had a 2 inch gap at the top which couldn't be closed. There was no tv in the room and the internet connection so poor as to be unusable.
The bathroom was seperate to the bedroom and was also extremely dated and very dirty.
The cynic in be says that we were given this room as we were not paying for the stay but had been given a voucher for a night away. Another reason could have been that the b&b was very busy while we were there. The owners told us that they were retiring soon and that the new owners were not going to be running it as a b&b, so this also could have been a contributory factor. Either way, it is a place that I would definitely not recommend.
