A wonderful welcome to a fantastic guest house. Great room and such good food, felt really spoilt by such care from Gareth. The day of my wife's 70th birthday was very special and even more so when Gareth provided a birthday bun with a candle on at the breakfast table... whilst singing happy birthday. We can honestly say that this...

The choice for breakfast is huge - we opted for the Scottish breakfast which set us up for the day. Gareth is an amazing host, nothing was too much trouble and he was...

My girlfriend and I stayed at Froach House for three nights. Our room was clean, large and spacious and tastefully decorated with a bathroom/shower ensuite. Despite the bitter temperatures outside, the room was toasty and warm, and a welcome retreat after a long day sight seeing and the occasional whiskey tasting. The room benefited from a TV, tea & coffee...

We were welcomed by Gareth - the owner - who introduced himself and went on to tell us the many things you can do in Edinburgh. Our room wasn't quite ready...

What an amazing and wonderful place to stay, we loved it. Clean, stylish, warm, quiet, friendly and all the other adjectives you would want in a B&B... We felt so welcome and comfortable, our 4 days in Edinburgh were one of the highlights of our Scotland holiday, which was due in no small part to our accommodation. We found a...

We really enjoyed our stay at Fraoch House and will definitely be recommending it to others. We stayed in a standard double room which was cosy with a very comfortable bed! Kat and Gareth were really friendly and took the time to chat with you. There was a great breakfast selection that sets you up for the day. Fraoch House...
