This was the best. The room was warm and inviting, decoration top notch. Breakfast could not have been better full cooked, cereal, toast, tea and coffee. The owner was great company. All in all being central in Forres close to the main street made the missus happy lol. Clas.

A warm, authentic and friendly welcome offers the visitors a pure Scottish hospitality, which is also reflected in the very cultivated rooms and the phenomenal (in qualitative and quantitative aspects) Scottish breakfast – a B & B which leaves nothing to be desired! Dear Barbara - we thank you warmly for all you have done! The five crazy Austrians
