It was a spur of the moment desicion to go away last week end and after looking at few destinations we chose Perthshire. I had a slight concern after trying to book several other B&B's and finding no vacancies that were able to book here but I worried for nothing. We had a pleasant stay. Both Vic & Sue were...

The bed was very comfortable. The breakfast is perfect with cereal, yogurt, toast, poached eggs, fresh coffee, tea, and including a full Scottish breakfast. Sue and Vic go that...

Very comfortable accommodation with excellent breakfasts: just the ticket for exploring the wonderful Tayside countryside and climbing 10 Munros in 4 days on the hills! (Gales and snow/hail/rain meant that three days were spent at lower levels.) A lovely village with stunning waterfalls. Hosts were very helpful indeed, for example in giving me a lift to the start of the...

I stayed here a few years ago and was welcomed as a single traveller. My room (attic) was very homely and the owners were lovely, my abiding memory was of the home made marmalade that I had at breakfast (all of which was delicious but this stood out)! Couldn't recommend enough and would definitely stay again on my next visit.
