Have spent the last two nights in sheer luxury. We don't want to go home! What a way to spend our 13th Anniversary! Thank you so much for your splendid hospitality and making it a truly memorable visit. I Know Davie will be back but I sincerely hope he will bring me back here soon. Can't wait to tell all my friends and family about this place, I bet they won't believe that such a B&B exists! Wishing you every success, you deserve it!

Back brae is the best b n b Ive ever stayed in . Not only for the fantastic facilities but the warmth of hospitality from Wilson & Catherine . thank you .

By Malcolm Conway , Northumberland 1st August 2011

Back Brae is not a B&B - It's a H&B ( Home & Breakfast) because you feel like you've come home. Catherine, Wilson and Alex made us feel like family. Catherine - your cooking is AMAZING!! Wilson - the home you designed, and built is a gem! Thank you both for all the little extras (cheese sconces, homemade bread, beer etc)that made our stay so special. We will not say goodbye - just "we wait until we see you again"! (P.S. Alex - You are beautiful and talented. We wish you all the best!). Our rating 15 stars ( 5 for each member of the house hold)

By Barry & Anne Gibson , Carlisle , Scotland . 27th - 29th March 2010

We had a wonderful stay at Backbrae House Bed and Breakfast, it is a beautiful old stone house artfully redone with all modern amenities. The accommodation is suited to both families or couples. The home has beautiful furnishings along with an amazing theatre room. The jaccuzi sits on the upper balcony overlooking open countryside views. The location is quite and serene yet close proximity to Edinburgh and Glasgow for sightseeing or business. Wilson, Catherine and Alex were wonderful hosts and there was never a shortage of great food. We would recommend anyone visiting this area to stay at Backbrae House Bed and Breakfast it is like home away from home.
