We stayed here for five nights in the week before Easter 2011 and had a wonderful, relaxing vacation. The guest house is marketed as a luxury establishment, which is certainly true: we had multi-course breakfasts with the most exquisite food, slept on high thread count sheets, enjoyed home-baked cookies every day in our room, were treated to soaps from a local company and cuddled up by the fire that was waiting for us every evening in the guest lounge. The hostess, Maria, is a world porridge champion, and the porridge was delicious, as were the many other breakfast offerings, including free range local eggs and smoked salmon from a nearby loch. The hosts were extremely knowledgeable about the local area and gave us great tips for hikes, places to eat and places to avoid. We stayed with our dog, who was greeted by the impressively regal MacDuff, the resident Italian spinone. The resident cat, Conan, was also very friendly. Although we stayed at the guest house as a base for hiking and site-seeing, we perhaps most enjoyed the peace and quiet of the beautiful house and the large garden in which it is situated. We cannot recommend it highly enough and look forward to going back again soon.
