We stayed two nights - over a weekend & bank holiday when some places were closed. Host Robin's knowledge of the local area and sights made it a very special time in Scotland. He recommended excellent restaurants and organized transport to some of the local historic sights that aren't featured in most of the tourist information which was very helpful. Access to the garden and sitting room made it more like staying in an elegant older home. The bed was very comfortable, towels large and fluffy and the shower was the best ever. Breakfasts were tasty with lots of choice from fresh fruit and yogurt to a traditional Scottish breakfast and a scrambled egg and smoked salmon dish that was just devine. I would go back in a minute!

Room Tip: Any room will please.

Thank you for your review it is one of the best I have had because you spotted the towels, the salmon and of course the bed. That may seem obvious but not always.

You were a pleasure to have to stay and we would welcome you back anytime

We had an excellent two nights in the old priory. Robin is an excellent and knowledgeable host. The rooms are well appointed and clean. The furniture is idiosyncratic but it works. The breakfasts are super with good choice and great quality. Could not fault it.

Idiosyncratic!!!! When you left you said unique

You had to be a teacher to come up with that one.

Idiosyncratic are those shoes! .

Come again you were great guests, glad that you had a good time at the races and thank you Christine for going on a course.

We stayed as part of a working holiday and were blown away with the warmth of Robin, his wife and family who made us feel so welcome and relaxed for over 2 days. The rooms were immaculate and gorgeous, breakfast was amazing. (Robin, we have had to source truckloads of Mango and Passion Fruit Curd since we have got back to Edinburgh!). The attention to every detail and helpfulness was second to none and we cannot wait to come back!

We stayed one night whilst travelling North to Fort Augustus and thoroughly enjoyed our stay, Robin was very helpful and cooked a fantastic full breakfast. The décor in this B&B is really amazing and the bed one of the most comfortable we have stayed in. If we are ever in the area again staying here will be a must!.
