We didn't actually stay here, our car broke down outside during our 9 day road trip around Scotland. Thank god we broke down outside Craiglinnhe House! Lawrence and Katrina couldn't have done more to help us, from looking up car mechanics to making us a hot drink, they made what could have been a very stressful experience much easier. The...

We drove into Glencoe at night in the rain and the roads were definitely hair-raising. To arrive at Lawrence's warm and inviting B&B was such a relief. Our room and bed were very comfortable, and we enjoyed having a whiskey in the common living room. He's got a nice bar to select from and pay on an honor system (great...

The only bad thing about the Craiglinnhe House was having to leave after two marvelous nights. Everything about this place was top-notch -- the breakfasts (loved the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs); the bedroom that was attractive and comfy without being frou-frou; the updated bathroom. But what made this place memorable was the host Lawrence. With his offer of afternoon...

My husband and I spent 4 nights at Craiglinnhe House on our recent vacation to Scotland. It was a wonderful experience. We had a front facing room which overlooked Loch Linnhe. The room was very comfortable and quite large. Breakfast was some of the best we had during our stay. Lawrence was very nice and extremely helpful in recommended good...

I've been to many B&Bs over the years. I do a lot of landscape photography and walking and spend much of my time in Scotland. Craiglinnhe House was a last minute booking for me as I'd decided at the drop of a hat to go and shoot Rannoch Moor. When I got to Craiglinnhe House I was pleasantly surprised at...

This has to be the best B & B we have ever stayed in. We stayed for four nights on our honeymoon and couldn't fault a thing. The room (room 5) was fantastic with a side view over the loch, spotlessly clean and cosy. Breakfast was out of this world.......the salmon on scrambled eggs on a toasted muffin is a...

We stumbled onto this gem while looking for a place to stay our last night (on our way to Glasgow airport). What we found was among the very best accommodation of our entire trip. The owners go above and beyond to make you feel welcome and the rooms are well-appointed and very comfortable. We had a small-ish twin room (last...

Host Lawrence could not have been more gracious, nor our stay more pleasant. From wonderfully comfortable beds to the honor bar to excellent recommendations for food and walks, Craiglinnhe House is a great choice.

Choosing a B&B for a vacation in magical Scotland requires a dose of faith, a dash of hope, and a dram of gambling spirits, since you can read every review in TripAdviser and still not be certain you're not making a mistake. Well, rest assured that booking a room at the Craiglinnhe House will not be one you'll regret. My...

Spent 3 wonderful nights in this lovely, restored B&B. House is Loch-side with spectacular views...very comfortable accommodations and the best "conviviality room" we've found anywhere. Lawrence and Katrina are the bests hosts EVER and really go the extra mile constantly. Besides, the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs were the best we had ANYWHERE in Scotland...and we ate them at every...
