Ideally situated on the shores of Loch Long with the attractive Village Inn right next door, Burnbrae proved immaculately clean and comfortable and it served an excellent breakfast. However, the bedrooms, breakfast room and hallway reeked of cigarette smoke, despite the fact that all the windows were open on our arrival (in February, with the central heating full on!) and despite a no-smoking sign prominently displayed on the door separating the guest quarters from the landlady's private rooms. I have no proof but I suspect the landlady herself may be a smoker (she certainly had what sounded like a smoker's cough) so I imagine this could be a problem that other guests encounter. Not a B&B that I would stay at again or one that I would recommend to non-smokers.

I am sorry that you found our house "smokey" but there is a pub next door with two log fires and we seem to get most of the whiff!.As to my "smokers cough" Thank you for your concern, but was just getting over a winter cold. I wish you had said something at the time and it could have been solved. You all said what a great time you had had and the boys even left us a picture. It's a shame you felt the need to slate us on Tripadvisor without mentioning it to us first. We do have smokers stay at the house as we try not to discriminate against anybody. They are NOT allowed to smoke in the rooms.

I took my Spanish fiance on a trip to my birthplace, Arrochar, and stayed here and Janice looked after us beautifully! So many lovely Scottish touches including the Monarch of the Glen over our bed! Wonderful views, attention to every detail, terrific breakfast and we changed our plans to return there after our trip to Islay. Loved it!

This is a delightful B&B; but actually it is more like a hotel!
The rooms are spacious and tastefully appointed with so much attention to detail and lovely views across the loch.
The little extras like the sherry decanter,DVD's,CD's etc were most welcome.
The Village Inn next door is perfect for dinner.
Very friendly service and would certainly recommend this to anyone.

We stayed here on our way up to Skye and again on the way back to break the journey. Each time for one night only. We have a small dog and were looking for a dog friendly B&B. This is a small B&B with 2 bedrooms and is kept immaculately by the owner Janice. There is a twin and a double bedded room, we had the double and it was a large, traditionally furnished and spotless room. The en-suite bathroom was likewise immaculate. Other reviewers will have already commented on the finishing touches that are provided from the usual tea and coffee in the rooms right up to a small decanter of sherry and dog biscuits for any dog owners. The owners have obviously gone to some lengths to make their guests comfortable.

There is a pub next door which again other reviewers have been largely complimentary of; we also found the food and ambience there to be very good. The B&B looks out across the road (which was quiet during our stay) to the loch beyond. A very pleasant way to wake up to when you open the blinds. There is a burn that runs alongside the property and during our stay it was in full flow. The sound of that filtering through the windows was quite soporific to this weary traveller.

Breakfast was traditional Scottish with the usual bacon and eggs as well as haggis and black pudding. Plenty of toast and home made preserves. One previous reviewer commented on the single breakfast table serving guests from both rooms, i.e. you had to share it if you had breakfast at similar or overlapping times. Some people may find this an intrusion. We did not. I am quite happy to talk to fellow travellers at the breakfast table, comparing experiences whilst away from home. Both on the way up to Skye and on our way back we had the pleasure to meet and chat with 2 other couples who were in the B&B at the same time as us.

A previous solitary reviewer called Janice “abrupt” that in our opinion was harsh, perhaps they caught her at a bad time, we are all human after all. Would we return to this B&B? Yes .. for all of the reasons above but the also the little touches like when Janice gave us some sausage for the dog after breakfast. She obviously has a kind and thoughtful heart.

Our last stop in a month's tour of Scotland and we couldn't kave done better. Just two rooms, each very different from the other in terms of decoration. One, a twin room in modern, bright art deco style the other a double in heavier more traditional Scottish style. Both rooms are large and the facilities on offer were excellent. Good quality flat screen TV, DVD with plenty of CDs and DVDs. Shoe cleaning kit, torches, hairdryer, mending kit and so much more seemed to be stacked away for our convenience in every drawer.

Janice gave some good advice on where to go and we enjoed our evenings in the pub next door with good food and a roaring fire. Make sure you book.

Will definitely recommend this place to my friends.
