Stayed in October in the annexe. Room was spacious, smart and clean. Tea coffee making facilities and bottled water, which was a nice touch. Mattress was very comfortable too. Bathroom had a roll top bath, fluffy towels and dressing gowns. Evening meal and breakfast was tasty and plentiful. I would definitely recommend the Wayside. Steven and Lynn are great hosts...

As the school holidays drew to an end, my wife and I decided that we could do with a short break before returning to the classrooms. We wanted somewhere quiet, cosy, rural but with access to a beach for our 2yr old son and dog and also close to some attractions for days out walking. We stumbled across Wayside guest...

GREAT food, relaxed and friendly hosts, quiet and beautiful surroundings. And of course the obligatory visit from the lovely dogs. A real joy to break up our journey home from the Highlands in this sophisticated hideaway. Cleanliness and order is unsurpassed. Do not let it's distance from the main put you off...it is well worth the extra few miles. Thanks...
