We recently spent 3 weeks in Scotland, staying at several B & B's throughout the country. The Dulaig was by far the the best of all. Hosts Gordon and Carol were so genuine, kind and helpful. I left feeling as though I'd made 2 new friends.
I agree with prior reviews about the high quality beds, breakfast, daily treats and accommodating hosts. They accomplish this while allowing you quiet space and privacy. Their home is a nature reserve in itself. I passed a fair amount of time in the back yard watching the wildlife pass through and admiring their gardens.
One of my favorite activities was rising a bit early and going up the street for a morning walk. At the end of the driveway one can walk up a gentle road and be rewarded with a beautiful arched bridge over a stream, sheep pastures and well signed nature trails. Given more time I would have explored that area a bit more.
I have such fond memories of The Dulaig. I will probably compare all future B&B's to the high standard set by Gordon and Carol and doubt I will find an equal. I would love to stay there again and wish them the best.
