The most filling breakfast I've had in a long time! Perfect for a long day of walking and visiting Huntly's great sights. Will have to come back and do it all again. Thank you for such a friendly service.

Thank you for your hospitality during my recent (if short) visit to your guest house, I will certainly be recommending your services to anybody who travels up that end of the country. The room was very good, bed good, facilities and touches of a personal nature also very good. The ensuites are great and hospitality of the hosts is top notch.

Just wanted to say thanks so much for having us, we had a great time at your place. We went to that cafe you suggested in Aviemore, it was brilliant, and the portions were worthy of challenging one of Keith's special breakfasts! We'll definitely drop by if we come through Huntly on our next trip!
