We spent 4 nights at this B&B and can honestly say we have never stayed in a more friendly, welcoming and attractive house.

This B&B has two lovely hosts, with magnificent views over the Moray Firth. We stayed for 5 nights, touring Scotland by car using this as a base. We were able to come and go as we pleased as we had our own key to the front door. Breakfast was fabulous. The rooms were clean and tidy with gorgeous views. TV...

This is by far the best b & b we have experienced. There was a warm welcome and help with our bags. The location is wonderful and the room was beautifully presented. There were double doors opening onto a balcony with views across the water. Great attention to detail in every respect. Would thoroughly recommend!

From the moment we arrived on the doorstep at Waters Edge, nothing was too much trouble. Bill and Gill are quite possibly the nicest 2 people on the planet. We booked the room on Gills recommendation that the bathroom overlooks the Moray Firth... she wasn't wrong. I wallowed for soooo long in that beautiful tub that I almost grew fins!!...

We are from Austria and went on a two weeks tour through Scotland. We went to many B&Bs, but the one of Gill and Bill was an marvelous experience. We travelled with two boys aged sixteen and eleven.
