This B&B was a most welcome retreat that I stayed at for two nights on my June 2014 cycle from Land’s End to John O’Groats.  It was the stop at the end of my 7th day after cycling through the magnificent Cairngorms from Dunkeld.   My route at that point was following the A9 and the B&B is conveniently located a few hundred metres from it and is easily located.  The next day I completed the ride to John O’Groats and had a lift back to the B&B (arranged through John O’Groats Bike Transport who also packaged up my bike and couriered it to my home) where I stayed overnight before taking a flight home the next day.

The hosts were very friendly and welcoming getting that balance between helpfulness and intrusion just right.  The room was very comfortable, well decorated and had everything I needed.  Whilst not en suite this did not seem to cause any problems.  Breakfast was excellent, well cooked and plentiful, even for someone about to cycle 125 miles.  My bike was well secured in the garage overnight.
