                      Must be the best B&B in the country. Worth staying for the breakfast alone. For us it was like coming home. I personally like the lovely little alcove and rocking chair in the room at the back! Fiona always makes you feel most welcome.

                      This was a fantastic 7 days. Attention to detail is stunning, the breakfast memorable and relaxing in the rocking chair in the alcove in the room on a hot evening very relaxing.

                      We, my sister and I, enjoyed the stay at Braeside. Iain served a magnificent breakfast and showed us a green rose in his garden.Unfortunately the bathroom was not quite proper (hairs and other stuff). Bedroom was OK .

                      We received a very warm welcome and had a delightful room. We were sorry we were only staying for one night. The breakfast was superb and Iain produced an outstanding omelette.
