Isla - thank you so much for being the most delightful hostess! We LOVED our stay at Strathallan and just writing this review makes me want to hop on a flight and go back to Grantown-on-Spey. We stayed in the Rowan room, which is luxuriously spacious and has a very large en-suite to boot. You can tell that Isla poured her heart into this B&B - I loved the details from the binder full of information on the town and surrounding areas, the beautiful decoration of our room (not to mention the amazing wallpaper in the lounge area), and the selection of teas and other goodies (wee dram of whisky!!) in our rooms. Breakfast was fantastic and I especially loved starting each day with traditional porridge. Thank you, again. Sincerely hope to be back in the future!!

Hurrah! It is always a great thing to know that someone wants to come back again. (It means I wasn't too crazy when we first met!) Your review has made my heart sing. Thank you for these delightful words and thank you so very much for being such lovely guests here. If you are ever back in the wilds of Scotland, come and see me again.

Best wishes

Isla

Our second stay with Isla for 5 nights in September. There is little to say other than there won't be a better B&B in Scotland! Everything was perfect from arrival to departure and despite the weather, there was such sadness to be leaving. The house and rooms are wonderful, and the little touches show that so much thought has gone into them. All the food for breakfast is so fresh with variations to suit everyone. The cooked breakfast is as good as you could wish for - and the freshest eggs ever!! How can we not return ............. again!
Thank you Isla.

Now. What can I say about this vibrant and kind couple. Quite a bit actually as they made a massive positive impact on me when I first met them. To have them back at Strathallan is like having family over (the family you don't want to run away from obviously!) We'll be seeing you both again soon I hope.

This house will always be your home.

Thank you!

We stayed at Strathallan House for two nights and we could'nt have asked for more. We were greeted by Isla, who made us feel welcome and showed us our room "Thistle" and encouraged us to drink the complimentary whiskey (which was great, both her doing it and the whiskey). The bed was / is heavenly! The bathroom was clean and very well to our liking, though we were too dumb to use the heater. Both Spencer and Isla were not irritated by our fail and showed us again how to properly use it. (Thank you again for patience by the way). Breakfest was delicious, one cannot ask for more. We can recommend staying with Isla and Spencer in Strathallan Bed & Breakfast and would come bach, if we were to roam the region again.

Room tip: heavenly bed, very nice hosts

Thank you for taking the time to give us such a warm and lovely review, we really appreciate it! Do come back for more whisky and there is a lot more roaming to do up here in the Highlands too.

Best wishes to you!

Strathallan B&B was a delightful experience for my wife and I. The house is grand and the Rowan Room was impressively sumptuous. Our hosts, Isla and Spencer were lovely and helpful and Isla's breakfasts were delicious and plentiful (a nice touch that the wonderfully fresh eggs served at breakfast come from Strathallan's own chickens). The location is ideal for meandering around Grantown-on-Spey on foot or for taking short car trips to visit nearby distilleries, walking trails, castles and villages. Highly recommended!

Room tip: The Rowan Room has a large, impressive en suite and a wonderful front-of-house view of the neighbourhood.

We stayed at the Strathallan B&B for two nights in June. We were looking for accommodation close to the Cairngorms but wanted something quieter than Aviemore.
The Strathallan is a great place to stay. You're in a quiet street off the main street (although Grantown is pretty quiet anyway, nothing compared to Aviemore).
The rooms are pretty comfortable with a distinct modern but cosy touch. We were even greeted with two drams of whisky.
The hosts, Isla and Spencer, are marvellous. Isla obviously does the cooking, provding for a great breakfast, and she also likes to chat to visitors about their travel plans etc. The guys just make you feel welcome and at home.
Going back to the Cairngorms, we would definitely stay there again!

We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay, and the breakfasts too! Thank you for taking the time to give us this delightful review. We love the fact that Grantown is still a nice quiet town and the perfect location to explore the Cairngorms.

Many thanks!
