We were quite overwhelmed and humbled to receive this poem written by US musician Mike Stout about The Dulaig B&B. Mike and his wife Stephanie stayed with us in July 2017 during their tour of the UK and this terrific poem reached us just a couple of days after their visit. Mike has given us his permission to share the poem, and incredibly says that some day when he has the right melody he may record it as a song for us - how wonderful is that?
Thank you, Mike and Ste...

Some combinations work really well, like this Acer Dissectum, paeony, Japanese anemone, Japanese granite bowl....and blackbird. It is The Dulaig after all!
We are honoured and absolutely delighted to say that The Dulaig won the AA Award for Guest Accommodation of the Year for Scotland 2016-17! Here we are with our award which was presented at the lovely Landmark Hotel in London.

We are delighted to let the news out....we are Finalists in the AA Bed and Breakfast Award for the Friendliest B&B of the Year 2015! The Award takes in AA B&Bs from Scotland, England, Wales and Ireland.
We were nominated by a Hotel Inspector who stayed with us anonymously and heard about our selection a few weeks ago. It came as a complete surprise and we were asked by the AA to keep the news under wraps until the winner is announced in London on 12 May 2015......but when we read abou...
It has been our absolute pleasure to share our home, garden, love of Scotland and of food, with guests over the past 14 years. The experience of running our B&B exceeded our wildest dreams however we - Carol, Gordon (& The Cake Fairy) - have hung up our aprons for the last time.
Thank you to the wonderful guests from all over the world who have stayed with us. You have given us so many special memories which we will always treasure. Thank you too, everyone else who has supported us: your confidence in us was appreciated more than words can say.
Warmest Wishes to All, Carol, Gordon..and The Cake Fairy x
