Great option in Tomintoul
Well located in the village. Friendly welcome although contact was limited because of COVID. Room was comfortable and in good condition. No cooked breakfast at the moment but this was more than made up for by a really excellent and substantial continental breakfast delivered to room. Tremendous value. Definitely recommended.
