“Best b&b ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2013

Just spent an excellent 3 days staying with Margaret and Peter. Couldn't fault the house in any way. The room was very comfortable, spotlessly clean, and large! Beautiful views from 3 windows. Large bathroom and great shower. Breakfast was brilliant with a large choice of cereals, fresh fruit and fresh pancakes and scones. Would prefer to keep Lumsdaine House a secret for ourselves. Vacancies could be few and far between. Give it a try,you won't be disappointed. We spend a lot of time travelling and this is one we would certainly return to and recommend . Thank you again Margaret and Peter for letting us share your lovely home.

This must be one of the best b&bs in the country. Clean, comfortable and welcoming. Margaret cannot do enough for her guests. Breakfast is fabulous with lots of fresh fruit and creme fraiche and a lovely cooked breakfast. I would recommend this house to anyone.

Great hospitality, sustainable with food, taking care of customers and situated in a nice area. Margaret Millican is a conscious owner with honourable work with taking care of the customers and serving a healthy food. The B&B is easy to reach and in a walking distance along the Union Canal to Linlithgow. Emma & Björn Pettersson, Sweden

The first thing one notes on arrival is the large paved driveway and parking area - such a relief. We were welcomed by our very friendly host and settled in a nice large quiet room. Lots of room in the B&B to relax. Excellent breakfast.
We particularly enjoyed a walk in the area surrounding Lumsdaine - fields nearby, and access (with a bit of a walk) to a lovely path beside a picturesque canal.
Overall, very enjoyable and highly to be recommended.

The weather in April 2013 may have left a lot to be desired but I have just spent four extremely comfortable nights at Lumsdaine House where I was made most welcome and enjoyed fresh fruit; eggs from the chicken outside and home made Scottish pancakes for breakfast. (There were other choices but I am vegetarian.)
The location is very convenient for touring around the central belt of Scotland - with easy access to motorways (Glasgow; Edinburgh; Stirling and surrounding areas) but, because of its rural location, offers the best of both worlds with peace and quiet and beautiful views over the valley.
As an OAP travelling alone, I also appreciated the fact that, on returning in the evening, the whole area around the house was well lit!

It was our second stay in Lumsdaine House in september 2012 - and it was great again!!! Margaret is very nice, the rooms are so clean and quiet. We love her breakfast with fresh fruit and eggs from the hens we could see during breakfast. Thanks so much for the bacon from their own pig!!! She gave it to us as a present to have a sort of scottish breakfast at home with my mother. The bacon was good, but the breakfast at home not comparable with that, that margaret served.... ;-) !!!! We are sure that we will come back to Lumsdaine House in 2013. Arnold & Annette

Room Tip: We can recommend this B & B very much

We arrived late in the day, The hostess was so friendly and helpful, we had to leave before breakfast to catch a flight and she packed us a huge bag of goodies to eat, Fruit, shortbread sandwiches etc. Really very thoughtful. May have been the cleanest inn I have ever been to. Highly recommended.
