Stayed here before catching morning ferry from Cairnryan, welcoming hosts and lovely clean room, tea and coffee facilities. I chose this B&B based on other positive reviews from dog owners, as I was traveling with my little dog. There is a small surcharge of £7 for each dog but that is understandable when you consider extra cleaning involved. My dog...

Bed very comfortable and street very quiet...

Stayed here for two nights (came for the Womens British Golf Open at Turnberry). Clean, comfortable, warm and cosy room with everything you might need for your stay. The breakfast was beautifully cooked, well presented and most important - tasted delicious! We would definitely come again if we were ever in the area.
