I stayed here as part of a small walking group, and cannot recommend it highly enough. It is a really lovely, warm and welcoming guest house, and the hosts are friendly and helpful. It is close to the attractions of Braemar itself, just a few minutes walk from the centre. The breakfasts were delicious!

Lovely B&B in the Cairngorms with warm and welcoming hosts. Not fancy, but very cosy and very Scottish. A walking distance to pubs in town and walking tracks around Braemar (we did Morrone which was fantastic). Loved the homemade sourdough toast with smoked salmon and scrambled eggs for breakfast.

All the previous reviews say it all really. Lovely, clean guest house. Lovely friendly host. Dog friendly. Five minute walk to the centre of the village. Extensive woods to walk the dog to the side of the house. Loads of walking nearby and in a great location for sightseeing. We appreciated the coffee and cake on arrival after a long journey. Would definately return.

Hi Martha, Many thanks for your nice review. The guest house is indeed in a great location - with lots of great dog walk routes from the doorstep. Hope you make it back again before too long. We'll have the coffee and baking ready for you! Kind regards, Al and Sarah

Wonderful hosts. Met and exceeded all our hopes and expectations for a guesthouse in the Highlands. Delicious breakfast with views of feeding birds and red squirrels in the garden. Well presented throughout and immaculately clean. Thank you!

Friendly hosts, beautiful and clean room, excellent breakfast. Loved the advice given regarding suitable walks for rainy weather. Loved that our dog was welcome as well. Birds and squirrels are as well cared for as guests are 💜
