Stay elsewhere

Do not stay here. The for sale sign by the door should have warned us. The guest house is in a good location and there’s parking close by. Adrian was welcoming and helpful. BUT The room was dirty and dust and very run down. In it’s former glory it would have been a very quaint typically Scottish guest house. . It hadn’t been cleaned in a long time. The furniture was old with handles missing. I could write my name in the dust on it. The bathroom amenities consisted of 2 small half used shampoo/ bath gel bottles and no hand soap. Breakfast was good apart for the burnt haggis. Which they still served and laughed about it. The breakfast room was charming.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities

The property was characterful, the host friendly, welcoming & helpful, & gave good advice about where to eat locally, walks to take. Breakfast was good. There were some surprising omissions - e.g. no waste basket in the room. But anything asked for was quickly supplied.
