Working in the area my company booked Carnach house for me to stay in. This is a beautiful B&B and if you are lucky to get a room in the front of the building there are stunning views. Lovely welcome and even my case carried to my room. My room was stunning lovely decorated, not cheap bed linen, matching beautiful furniture and then I went into the bathroom wow this too was stunning. Modern but with a traditional look. Nice stock of teas and coffees, lovely biscuits and also a teapot, China’s cups and saucers. There was a good information guide in the room places to eat and things to do in the area. After one of the best nights sleeps I’ve had in a long time. I got ready and went for breakfast. The room was stunning and everything was so perfect little touches like silver salt and pepper pots. I opted for the Scottish breakfast. This was fresh to order and very nice. Everything here was so perfect. I wish I had got to stay longer. You never no hopefully I’ll be back again. I would highly recommend staying here. The house is so beautiful very breath taking. I wish this was my home.

We booked for one night & stayed for three - such was the quality of the place. Hillary & Ian are splendid hosts and have a comfortable, stylish, spotlessly clean luxury home. Breakfasts are very good - and we have no hesitation recommending Carnach House, even if it means you take a detour !

Cranach house was a very comfortable clean and peaceful spot with very accomodating hosts. The gardens surrounding the property were lovely and home to red squirrels and many types of birds. Our room was spacious and very comfortable.

We stayed with Ian and Hillary in July for two nights with our two kids aged 6 and 8. Carnach House was our favourite B&B in Scotland by far. From the very friendly welcome, to the amazing mansion / garden including the squirrels as well as the amazing breakfast - everything was perfect. We had the four-poster bedroom which was spotless clean, big, with comfy beds and a large well equipped bath room. Calling Carnach House a B&B does not do it justice - I would call it a mini boutique hotel. Ian, Hillary - apologies for taking so long with my review - thanks again for the lovely stay with you. we hope to be back some time soon! The kids still talk about the squirrels :) and we fondly remember your place as well as our conversations. Best regards, Daniela & Hugues, Oliver & Alicia
