Good Hotel Guide Review
Warm Scottish hospitality is the hallmark of this Edwardian country house B&B, from the home-made cakes and whisky-fuelled porridge to the beautifully tended garden and comfortable bedrooms. Carol and Gordon Bulloch treat guests as friends; there are tea and scones to welcome you in the drawing room, with its log fire, antiques and plump sofas, and fresh flowers and chocolates in the large bedrooms. All rooms overlook the garden and are filled with a mix of Arts and Crafts (reflecting the house’s history) and contemporary furniture. Fabrics are prettily patterned country house style, beds are praised for their comfort while bathrooms have under-floor heating, luxury Scottish products and a choice of slipper bath, whirlpool bath or shower with body-jets. ‘Home-made and delicious’ breakfasts are ‘second to none’ according to one happy reader, with fishcakes and potato cakes adding to the spread of granola, scrambled eggs (from the owners’ hens) and porridge (with a nip of the good stuff). After a day’s walking, guests look forward to home-made cake while spotting squirrels, pheasants, woodpeckers and hens in the garden. (VA)
