We have returned to this wonderful place every two years since we found it on spec in 2002 . The welcome is a big smile, warm and very friendly, the atmosphere homely, the food fantastic and made to order just for you. The rooms are well furnished and beautifully decorated, with a hint of the Orient mixed with typical Scottish...

After a long car journey we stopped on spec at Canter Holm to enquire about vacancies. We were met by the landlady who had quite the broadest and most welcoming smile we have ever received from someone in this trade. The proprietor invited us into her home to view the rooms available. The guest house has a 'home from home'...

Clean bedding and room, what more can you want? Shared bathroom isn't ideal for everyone but sometimes you have to make do... The bathroom itself is massive with a large bath. The shower is a double and is more than adequate. Especially to wake you up after a night out on the town.. Very nice Chinese hospitality with a hint...
