This is a lovley (but smaller) B&B in southern Scotland, right on the water. It only has 1 bedroom with a King bed & private shower, so you should book well in advance. A large picture window overlooks the inland sea where you can see Dolphins right off shore. Alain the owner also had the forethought to provide the room with 2 pairs of binoculars. A nice selection of teas & coffee & cookies also complement the room. The 35 pounds p/p per night also gives you a full Gourmet breakfast. Alain's breakfasts we found to be the best of all the B&B we stayed at.
Now I have to mention another part of his family "Grimsby". Grimsby is the most intellegant Boarder Collie I have seen. He will let you play fetch all day long if you coose to do so. A thrown ball is retreaved & then pushed along the ground with his nose until you receive it. Real cute.
Lots of nice Pubs in the area the best being at the Criffel Inn at New Abbey 5 mi away. Another Pub the Steamboat Inn 1/4 mi has good beers, but the food is just so-so. Another close by historical place is the cottage where "John Paul Jones" was born.
The only slight drawback to Clearviews is that only cash or T/C are accepted.
But this B&B is definately on our "must return list".
