Castleview is clean, beautiful and a lovely place. Ian and Betty are very good persons. I loved the place. The best scramble eggs I've ever eat. Ian is a perfect cook. Was not like my home, it's better.

Ian and Betty constantly make sure you feel as you would in your own place. Ensuite rooms are best in class, comfortable and with generous space. The master chef Ian prepares some of the best salmon you will find in Britain - outstanding breakfast and dinner. Glenfiddich nosing and tasting was a pleasant surprise (video orientation included!). The cats (Bo and Ti) are their secret weapon to attract pet lovers. Every detail counts and they make sure to excel in each one of them. Thumbs up in every sense.

Despite the weather our stay at Castleview was very enjoyable and the hosts were very hospitable and caring. Room was excellent and of a very high standard. Food was excellent and Ian should consider entering Master Chef (Amateur) if he is not out fishing. This B&B is up there at ***** standard and certainly **** GOLD. Can recommend to anyone.

This is my 5th time in Castleview and wont be my last!
Fantastic rooms all en suite (stayed in all the rooms) colour TV, beautiful bathrooms.
Al La Carte menu. Food is fantastic all home made by Ian.
The garden is beatuiful and there is a river running at the back of the house.
Very peaceful.
If you have a meal in the evening, Betty hosts a Glenfiddich nose and tasting session for free! Fantastic!
Cannot wait to go back.

Room Tip: All rooms are beautiful and quiet. You can hear a pin drop.

Spent 3 nights with Ian and Betty mid April 2012 ---like being at home on a very good day!
Bedrooms beautifully appointed- service and food first class.
Attention to every detail was evident.
All scottish tourism should reflect this standard of enthusiastic service!
Ian is also, co-incidentally, a first class game fishing guide whose expertise was greatly appreciated by this particular trout fisherman.

Room Tip: Every room excellent!
