If you are looking for somewhere to stay and are willing to pay a little extra for a beautifully decorated house with lovely rooms and some serious attention to detail then you won't be disappointed with this Guesthouse.

This place is just the best. We have stayed before and we were again not disappointed. The attention to detail and the breakfasts are of such a high standard. The rooms are fantastic and the guest sitting room with the honesty bar is very comfortable and relaxing. Thank you Sheila and we will see you again in the autumn.

We were greatly impressed by the quality of the accommodation, the cleanliness and attention to detail. The breakfast served was by far the best we have ever had in the...

We had a wonderful stay for two nights for a weekend trip away. Many places were recommended to us by the hostess which really made the days more special, such as a walk out to see the reindeers (incredible) and an afternoon at Loch Morlich walking along the beach. The breakfast had to be my favourite part! Such a big...

We have just had our fifth stay here, and this visit was as good as all previous stays. We really enjoy the breakfast, and the sherry on arrival. The location is very quiet and the rooms are beautifully decorated. We will visit again.
