Very nice guest house, awesome breakfast
I stayed here in a twin room with a friend on our first trip to Scotland and we loved it. Very nice room with en suite bathroom. The staff at the guest house were very nice and the breakfast is just great, you can choose from different options of cooked breakfast. I mostly had the Scottish breakfast which I really liked. I definitely want to come back here!
