We had a small self catering apartment that was well furnished and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped and had basic cooking supplies. The location with off street parking was well placed for visiting St Andrews and Dundee which is eleven miles away. It is run by a couple who were friendly and helpful and who dealt immediately with any...

Linda and Jim were wonderful hosts who made great suggestions for restaurants and day trips. What a shame we didn't have time for some golf with Jim. Little Carron Cottage is truly a gem with it's lovely large yard. Bedrooms were very comfortable with clean and well supplied ensuite bathrooms. Breakfasts were delicious. We were fortunate to have the suite...

We booked just one night in this charming B&B at fairly short notice, and we wished it could have been longer! Just a short walk from the town centre, Little Carron Cottage is gorgeous! We were lucky enough to get the Eden Suite which we were surprised to find out has its own living room area adjoined. Linda and Jim...

This is probably the best B&B we have stayed at during our two weeks' tour of Scotland. Excellent value for money, friendly owners, comfortable and large rooms, a lovely garden. Great to explore St. Andrews and the coast. Highly recommended.

This was our 1st B&B in our 3-week journey to Scotland & Ireland! What a great way to start & get off on the right foot! Linda & Jim could not have been more helpful & supportive!

Visiting St Andrews to attend wedding of friend. Little Carron was recommended to us and we were not disappointed. Six of us stayed in extremely comfortable accommodation; two suites and one very large double room. The owners couldn't have been more helpful and the breakfast was outstanding. As I love St Andrews and surrounding area I will definitely be returning...

We spent 2 weeks at this adorable B & B which is located in a quiet neighborhood, yet it close to everything. We stayed in the Swilcan suite which has a king bed, kitchen, living room, modern bathroom, and even a small washer and dryer. Nice TV and free Wifi. The suite is spacious and immaculate.

We had a wonderful six night experience at Little Carron Cottage. Our hosts, Linda and Jim, were engaging and extremely helpful. The location was about 5 minutes by car from the Old Course or 25 minutes walking and there was also a bus stop nearby. The experience was a lot like visiting with family. Our trip was all about golf...

A friendly greeting upon arrival at this charming, comfortable cottage began this matchless visit. We were in Eden suite, on the ground floor, with lounge and en-suite, french windows and very comfortable furnishings. The proprietors could not have been more helpful - they arranged breakfast (which was splendid) so we could eat with our friends who were also staying there.

We have just spent two nights in St. Andrews and spent the nights at Little Carron Cottage which is a excellent place. Linda and Jim are very welcoming hosts and were quick to make us feel at home. We had a full Scottish breakfast prepared by Jim and it was excellent. The only issue to beware of is that it...

Thank you for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us, it was great meeting you both. We have 3 B&B rooms within the cottage, one upstairs and two on the ground floor that were booked by American guests who didn't require breakfast.
