As we drove up to our B&B, my boyfriend and I were super excited to see a modern, purpose-built building standing on the top of a hill, with breathtaking loch side views. We couldn't wait to see inside! Ideally suited for romantic getaways, this B&B has 4 rooms and one big breakfast table in the dining area, overlooking the water....

Fantastic venue, glorious views, beautiful weather (at least on our visit), warm friendly welcome and excellent hospitality. Everything you could wish for from an award winning B&B. Our hosts Sean and Karen were delightful, attentive and obviously very proud of their business and its reputation for quality of service, and deservedly so.
