Good Hotel Guide Review
Liked for its ‘unfussy atmosphere’, ‘warm hospitality’ and home-made Seville orange marmalade, this ‘friendly’ B&B occupies a ‘gorgeous’ Edwardian country house, ten minutes’ walk from town. Carol and Gordon Bulloch, the owners, are ‘simply wonderful’. They have furnished their house with a mix of Arts and Crafts antiques and contemporary pieces; the drawing room has an open log fire in cool weather. Touches of whimsy are much appreciated: the ‘cake fairy’ leaves freshly baked sweet treats in the spacious, tastefully decorated bedrooms each day. Generous Scottish breakfasts include haggis, home-made potato scones, whisky- and cream-laced porridge, and eggs from the resident Black Rock hens. Packed lunches are available for a day of walks, fishing or sampling vintages at the nearby distillery.
