We had a wonderful stay here for a friends wedding. Our room was of a very high quality and extremely spacious. Heather and Neil were perfect hosts and we greatly enjoyed their company. They were very kind to us, staying up to meet us after our late flight and providing local advice. We highly recommend this B&B.

Only one night here but a very comfortable one. Large bedroom, large bed , a shower that worked well and the best breakfast we had had for long while. Definitely one to use if you are in the area. Thank you Heather and Neil for some great Scottish hospitality.

Osborne house is a great place to stay. It's a beautiful house with a lovely garden. Heather and Neil were lovely hosts: friendly, warm and welcoming. I needed an early breakfast on several days and they were very happy to accommodate. Breakfasts were great and my room (the single) was very spacious and comfortable. Will definitely be going back.
