We offer an automatic discount on stays of 4 nights or more.

CORONA UPDATE February 2021 . Unfortunately the nationwide Scottish Lockdown that started on 26th December has been extended until 26th April at least so we have had to cancel all bookings for that period. We hope that once this is reviewed we can start to welcome guests back again although we expect a return to the Tier system and this will again restrict who may travel here. Residents of England/Wales/Northern Island should note that travel is NOT permitted into/out of Scotland ( by law) during the lockdown. We will try to keep all guests that have booked with us and might be affected informed as we know ourselves.

Enjoy a socially distanced breakfast in our dining area and you can also use this area to bring back a take away in the evening.

Due to the enhanced cleaning programme required of us to ensure the safety of both our guests and community re Covid 19 we can only offer stays of minimum 2 nights. Sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused.

 EASY TO BOOK via our website to obtain guaranteed best price with no added commission, service or cleaning charges. A delicious breakfast is included in the price. Just click on the Availability Calendar and input the dates you require and available room options and prices will be shown. No deposit taken at time of booking and free cancellation up to 7 days before arrival date (If Government guidance prevents us from being open or travel restrictions prevent you from leaving your home then no cancellation charges would be made) If you have concerns that travel to Scotland is unlikely to be possible we will move your booking to another available date or to next year without charge and at this years rates.

We send our thanks for the many goodwill messages received from our guests and hope to see you all again in the near future. Thank you for your support at this challenging time !
