“An amazing time”
Reviewed 8 December 2011

It was fantastic. I only can recommend this B&B with Emma and Robertson as hosts. Just wonderful people who welcome you by heart.
I had a fantastic time there and I really want to come back next year :-)

Very cozy and welcoming environment. We arrived wet and cold after a long train ride from Edinburgh. Robertson was excellent in helping us with our things and suggesting places to eat and things to see. The room was beautifully decorated and the bed was comfy! Complimentary whisky each day, as well as tea and cookies! Breakfast was excellent, cooked as they say "by a man in a kilt"! Large portions that really get your ready for your day. Emma and Robertson really went out of their way to make us feel welcome. I would absolutely recommend a stay with Ferintosh, I know we will again one day too.

The Ferintosh is an outstanding B&B, probably the best in Scotland. Emma and Robertson are fantastic hosts and really makes you feel like home. Complementary drams on in the room and exelent Scottish breakfast makes your stay even better. I will most certainly come back to Ferintosh.

Arriving weary, tired and hungry, Robertson welcomed us to his wonderful establishment and showed us to our beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable room. Once we'd freshened up, he gave us directions to several fabulous local eateries, which were easy to locate and truly magificent fare was devoured.
After a pleasant stroll around the town, we headed back to our room and enjoyed a couple of cuppas, and chose our breakfast, before sinking into our comfy bed.
Robertson's breakfasts are legendary! Cooked to perfection and served at your table at your requested time - and all superb locally sourced produce! The plate's groan under the weight of the food! The first time I stayed at Ferintosh, I wasn't prepared for the size of the breakfast and was unable to finish my breakfast! I imagined it would be a "normal" breakfast, but no! Once you have eaten one of Robertson's breakfasts, you won't need anything else to eat until tea time! Delicious!
If you are struggling to find somewhere to visit during the day, Robertson has an array of maps and books and a wealth of local knowledge to help you to decide.
All this and dogs are welcomed too!
We have stayed in many hotels and B & B's all over the country, but this is the BEST! Which is one of the reasons why we continue to return again and again, and we found most of the guests staying at the same week as us, were in fact, returning for the umteenth time.
You won't find a better B & B - we know - we've looked!

Room Tip: We have stayed in all the rooms at Robertson's, they are all fantastic!

I stayed at the Ferintosh guest house during September and found it to be very cosy and welcoming, the service was quite simply astounding, with every need catered for.

The location of the house is also very nice and great for walks and exploring. I did a little rambling at the time and was astounded by the breathtaking setting of the establishment. It was like a fairy tale or narnia, truly beautiful.

If I had to sum up my time their in brief, I believe only the statement 'it was the very essence of luxury' would suffice.

I highly recommend this hotel to any staying in the area. At worst it will be the best hotel you have ever experienced, and at best, with circumstantial events included, it could change your life forever
