We stayed for one night only, but will be going back. The rooms are luxurious and thoughtfully decorated and equipped. The balcony looks over onto the water and it is large and comfortable. The garden is also lovely to explore. The proprietors Jill and Bill are extremely welcoming and the breakfast is to die for

This B&B is at the luxury end of the market. It is very clean, no dust no odours just immaculate. Above all the hosts are very genuine friendly people and really do make you feel at home. Its a brilliant quiet place to chill out.

We enjoyed a fabulous long weekend at the 'Waters Edge'. The room was fantastic and well worth the five stars. The attention to detail was just so spot on. We had fantastic views across the Firth. Bill & Gill were invisible, as all good hosts should be, but we knew they were there if needed. I could not fault the... More

£150 for a Highland B&B? Well actually it's more like staying in a beautiful room in a friend's lovely home, complete with a magnificent balcony overlooking the water, a scotch and shortbread on arrival and a great breakfast in the morning.

We stayed at this B&B for one night and were so impressed with every aspect of our stay. The room with it's own balcony and "hidden" bathroom was stunning, spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you might need including fresh fruit, bathrobes, binoculars, etc. In fact, it was better equipped than many a five star hotel. The location is excellent,... More

When we go on holiday we always say that we don't want to be less comfortable than we would be at home. Our delightful hosts made sure that everything was above our expectations and all their little extra touches made our stay exceptional. The large terrace with sea view was an added bonus. Thanks a lot Gill and Bill.
