We had a wonderful six night experience at Little Carron Cottage. Our hosts, Linda and Jim, were engaging and extremely helpful. The location was about 5 minutes by car from the Old Course or 25 minutes walking and there was also a bus stop nearby. The experience was a lot like visiting with family. Our trip was all about golf...

A friendly greeting upon arrival at this charming, comfortable cottage began this matchless visit. We were in Eden suite, on the ground floor, with lounge and en-suite, french windows and very comfortable furnishings. The proprietors could not have been more helpful - they arranged breakfast (which was splendid) so we could eat with our friends who were also staying there.

We have just spent two nights in St. Andrews and spent the nights at Little Carron Cottage which is a excellent place. Linda and Jim are very welcoming hosts and were quick to make us feel at home. We had a full Scottish breakfast prepared by Jim and it was excellent. The only issue to beware of is that it...

Thank you for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us, it was great meeting you both. We have 3 B&B rooms within the cottage, one upstairs and two on the ground floor that were booked by American guests who didn't require breakfast.

From the warm friendly and informative welcome from Linda and Jim, beautiful accommodation and excellent breakfast, extremely difficult to find a fault. Half hour lovely walk in to town centre may not suit everyone tho. Highly recommended.

A wonderful home and family has made our second visit even better the the excellent first time. Directly across the road from the start of the Lade Braes, bus stop at the door, and a nice 1 mile walk into St. Andrews. Comfortable suites (we take two of the three) with a nice garden outside sliding glass doors. However, it...

My partner and I had a lovely stay at Little Carron B&B at the weekend. Our room was very comfortable and spacious, we both slept very well. Jim and Linda were brilliant and had plenty of suggestions on activities. This is a fantastic b&b and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone. Thank you for making us so welcome.

My Husband and I recently stayed in The Swilcan Suite of Little Carron Cottage, on a self catering basis. The suite is also available on a B & B basis, so choice is yours. We liked the separate entrance and parking space. The suite is very roomy, large bedroom, lounge and shower room, the kitchen is compact but has everything...

We have just returned home to North Wales from our eighth annual pilgrimage to "Little Carron Cottage" just outside St. Andrews ---the home of our wonderful hosts Jim and Linda. We feature eight times in their visitors comments books (now on volume two!!) and are fast running out of superlatives to describe the attention to detail they put in to...

Jim and Linda made us very welcome in their home. Our room was bright and airy and had all the amenities you would expect from a first class B&B. Breakfast of course was the highlight. There was everything you could imagine from a full Scottish cooked breakfast to freshly prepared fruit salad (raspberries, strawberries, peach and blueberries etc), cereal and...

We booked - two couples - at Little Carron Cottage having read the many positive reviews and our stay certainly came up to expectations. Linda and Jim are really welcoming. The location is very quiet and peaceful and there is a lovely walk along the river into town, about 20 minutes. (Or a 5 minute drive.) One couple had the...
