Managed / run by authentic, very friendly and accommodating, Scottish couple.
Wonderfully created breakfasts. Ask for the mystery breakfast - all very good.
During breakfast: The owner passes on his great sense of wit, humour, with some useful, interesting, Scottish history. While his wife, Irene, works in the kitchen preparing your outstanding meal, which is beautifully presented.
We found it very clean, secure and a quiet environment. Friendly, great, staff.
Updated large building and a beautiful, large, back yard. In the far corner of which grows a very large, great old, interesting, tree.
Easy access by bus to Edinburgh and other locations.
Within easy walking distance is a friendly pub - try their lamb shank , etc. In the other direction is a small town with great restaurants, especially ITIHAAS - wonderful, very friendly, Indian restaurant. Ask Ewan about it, he will tell you how many yards, feet, you have to walk to get there.
Thank you for a wonderful experience,
Danielle (Dani) and Gerry
