Excellent welcome, perfect breakfast and very kind! We will come back if we visit again! It was our first stop and our best stay at Schotland. The room was also perfect! We will sure recommend it to our friends!

Booked last minute to see my daughter perform. A wonderful place to stay, with a really welcoming reception even though we were late. The rooms were large and comfortable with a great breakfast in the morning, which really set us up for a day at the fringe. All the family enjoyed the stay and we will be back.

Dawn had thought of everything to make us feel welcome and at home. The room was amazing----beautifully appointed and full of comfort. And in the morning----fresh fruit,...

Lots of good restaurants nearby. Excellent breakfast cook by Dawn, any special requests are no problem. The bedrooms are tastefully decorated, spacious and have very comfortable beds. We attended a wedding and she had turned our beds down ready for our return!

We had a lovely stay at Rutherford House and were very well looked after. Breakfast was excellent and the house was very nice. We were directed to some good local places to eat for evening meals. We would recommend this B & B.

Very welcoming owner and genuinely friendly. Really went that extra mile for our stay. Lovely grounds for an evening stroll. Comfortable and cosy beds with en suite. Easy access to Edinburgh and the Scottish Borders. Best B&B I've stayed in the UK.

Situated on the edge of Edinburgh and the Scottish Borders, it benefits from the quiet rural countryside, whilst only a 20minute drive will take you straight into the heart of Edinburgh city center. ... more   less
