We had the pleasure of staying at the Claonairigh House for 3 nights of our Scotland holiday. It was wonderful. Fiona went out of her way to make us comfortable. The building is quaint and classic. You felt like you had arrived into an 18th century novel when you turned the corner into the drive. The room was cozy and... More

The property is like a post card. It's simply amazing. The Corners are terrific. Everything was in order. We slept like babies. Breakfast was outstanding. Fiona has the best tea and lemon cake in Scotland. We really enjoyed chatting the evening we arrived and learning about the property. We were missing our own border collie, Ringo, and the Corners were... More

A 270 years old farm house, renovated without losing the charm of former times but with all you need. A lot of pretty dedails. The breakfast is very good. The owners are friendly people. It was a pleasure to stay and we would like to be there again

Fiona welecomed us, gave dinner recommendations, and even offered to make me two breakfasts when I couldn't decide between the plethora of options. Location was a little bit further outside of town than we had originally realized but this didn't impact us too much.

This past June, my husband and I stayed at bucolic Claonairigh House. We were searching for a unique place to begin our two week exploration of Scotland and Claonairigh was the perfect base for our first stay. Weeks before, I emailed Fiona and requested specific driving directions from Glasgow and she immediately responded with detailed and humorous directions. I know... More
