From the warm friendly and informative welcome from Linda and Jim, beautiful accommodation and excellent breakfast, extremely difficult to find a fault. Half hour lovely walk in to town centre may not suit everyone tho. Highly recommended.

A wonderful home and family has made our second visit even better the the excellent first time. Directly across the road from the start of the Lade Braes, bus stop at the door, and a nice 1 mile walk into St. Andrews. Comfortable suites (we take two of the three) with a nice garden outside sliding glass doors. However, it...

My partner and I had a lovely stay at Little Carron B&B at the weekend. Our room was very comfortable and spacious, we both slept very well. Jim and Linda were brilliant and had plenty of suggestions on activities. This is a fantastic b&b and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone. Thank you for making us so welcome.

My Husband and I recently stayed in The Swilcan Suite of Little Carron Cottage, on a self catering basis. The suite is also available on a B & B basis, so choice is yours. We liked the separate entrance and parking space. The suite is very roomy, large bedroom, lounge and shower room, the kitchen is compact but has everything...

We have just returned home to North Wales from our eighth annual pilgrimage to "Little Carron Cottage" just outside St. Andrews ---the home of our wonderful hosts Jim and Linda. We feature eight times in their visitors comments books (now on volume two!!) and are fast running out of superlatives to describe the attention to detail they put in to...

Jim and Linda made us very welcome in their home. Our room was bright and airy and had all the amenities you would expect from a first class B&B. Breakfast of course was the highlight. There was everything you could imagine from a full Scottish cooked breakfast to freshly prepared fruit salad (raspberries, strawberries, peach and blueberries etc), cereal and...

We booked - two couples - at Little Carron Cottage having read the many positive reviews and our stay certainly came up to expectations. Linda and Jim are really welcoming. The location is very quiet and peaceful and there is a lovely walk along the river into town, about 20 minutes. (Or a 5 minute drive.) One couple had the...

Very Friendly. Linda and Jim made us feel right at home. The B&B rooms were excellent, and on our next stay, we stayed in the flat which was very cozy - good bedroom, nice bathroom, functional fully equipped kitchen and nice living/dining room, and nice garden to sit outside in enjoying the sun.

Linda and Jim are simply the best hosts. From the very first moment they make you feel at home and during the visit nothing is a problem. We were staying for the 2015 Open golf and Jim drove us to the course on a regular basis. They are both excellent cooks and breakfast was excellent. Linda also made lunch for...
