A warm welcome from Chris and Stuart is just what we needed after our interesting start to our holiday. Not only the welcome was excellent, great ground floor bedroom with walk in shower was just perfect in every way. Chris and Stuart went out of their way to accommodate our changes in our travel plans. A beautiful area, with lots...

Beautiful setting Beautiful food. Beautiful room. Beautiful hosts. Perfect. This is our second visit to Wemyss House and it is well worth the long drive. Home made cakes on arrival and a cup tea whenever we arrived back from our long drives.

Such a wonderful place to be. The hospitality of Wemyss House was easy going, warm and welcoming. The breakfast was excellent, the house is beautiful and the bedroom was incredibly comfortable. We loved the Scottish highlands and Wemyss House just made everything even better. I feel we were very lucky to have found such a special place.

Our first visit to Wemyss house. We were made to feel so welcome - homemade cakes and tea. Beautiful house - everything is done to a fantastically high standard. Cannot speak highly enough about it. And the breakfast..... well introducing my husband to whisky in his porridge was a sure to get us to come back! Brilliant!

Thank you for your complementary review. It was great to welcome you for your first visit to Wemyss House and so good to hear how you all enjoyed the experience. Yes the porridge with 'additions' is a favourite of many of our guests at breakfast , just for holidays though!

I have visited Wemyss House every time I have been up to Scotland and every time it has been a pleasure.

I can only confirm that all the reviews for Wemyss House are spot on. We stayed for several nights recently and were made to feel very welcome. Everything about Wemyss House is pure quality and we would highly recommend that anyone visiting the Highlands ensure they stay here for a few nights.

Having travelled extensively in the USA ourselves, we know just how tiring it is after the long haul journey to the UK so the tea and home baked cakes were the least we could do to offer you a Highland Welcome and make you feel 'at home'. We wished we could have had more time to chat and hope you...
