Dave and Angela are really great hosts. The room was clean and well furnished. The breakfast was lovely. I stayed when there were terrible floods in the area and my hosts made my stay feel like a home from home.

We enjoyed our stay at the Craiglea very much, we love Braemar and the surrounding country for walking and to find such a comfortable and homely B&B is great. We will definitely be back soon, finding that Braemar had an electric car charger was an added bonus!!

We stopped here for only one night touring Scotland this summer and I would have liked to stay more. Angela and Dave were very kind with us, with precious suggestions about dinner. Rooms are simple but comfortable and clean. Great Scottish breakfast.

We enjoyed our stay at this B&B. We stayed in the family room (room 3) with en-suite bathroom for two nights. It was very spacious and clean. The full Scottish breakfast and salmon & scrambled eggs were great. The hosts provided us with a map of nearby walks to do and also spent a considerable time trying to assist us...

We stayed at this B&B during the Highland Games this past September and had such a wonderful experience here! After traveling through Scotland and staying at other B&B's that were disappointing, it was so nice to end our visit at this exceptional place. The beds were so comfortable and the rooms so very cozy. Our hosts - Angel and Dave...

We are really pleased that you enjoyed the Braemar Highland games experience. It is nice for our children to continue the games with their piping and dancing display for our guests while having the informal buffet. We hope you get the chance to come back to see the spectacle.

Oliver played the bagpipes and Amelia danced for our entertainment. A bonus that was not expected,but graciously received. I would highly recommend this B & B to...

Visited Braemar while roadtripping in Scotland and Craiglea was certainly one of the best stays we had. Nice location, great breakfast (loved the coffee!! Finns approve.) and so friendly owners! Packed lunch was also most certainly enough for a little hike (approx. 6km that day). I'd love to come again and explore nearby trais more!
