Due to some problems on the road we arrived at quarter to seven, 45 minutes after the designated two hour check in slot. There was nobody at the building to welcome us, just a note on the door addressed to the "late arrivals". I am not sure why it was so important to remind us that we had arrived late...

This was a real find, the rooms were beautifully appointed, with a small decanter of sherry on arrival, and plenty of heat and hot water as we needed (it was October). The whole house was absolutely spotless, and the owner was totally efficient, but also friendly. I got the impression she would have known what to do in any emergency!...

We stayed for one night in December while touring the Highlands by car. The house is easy to find and quite pretty. Our rooms were spotless with lots of thoughtful amenities such as cookies and sherry. Breakfast was excellent. Shelagh was welcoming and ready to give tips about what to do and see. The only downside was that the rooms...

The Old Minister's House was the prettiest B&B of four that we stayed at while in Scotland. The exterior is beautiful and very well kept. Inside, the design is modern and fresh while still keeping that country house feel. We chose the ground-floor room for the price. We had no noise issues and the room was very clean and the...

Great beds, big bathtub, tea and cookies in room. Quiet. Great breakfast served by Mary, who is so pleasant every morning and eager to bring breakfast. Hot tea waiting each morning. Shiela is the owner, and check in in 4-6 pm, or make prior arrangement. Easy enough rule to follow for a really great bed and breakfast near hiking trails,...

Thank you for a wonderful stay myself and my two daughters had a fantastic few days. Shelagh the owner absolutely went the extra mile for us, from the incredible room, attention, local advice and tips. One of the best breakfasts we have all had to include my tricky daughters. There is a DVD library and a honesty bar, so for...
