Situated in a quiet street in the centre of Crieff, this spacious double room with a good sized bathroom, is located at the front of our house. It is comfortably furnished, blending early Victorian architecture with a contemporary style, and is decorated with an artist's eye.
We offer friendly hospitality, in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. Free WiFi, off-street parking, guest's lounge, full breakfast; tea & coffee making facilities in room; toiletries and towels all included.
The 'Yellow and Green' bedroom (double ensuite) combines homemaker America with Chinese style!
With a fresh colour scheme, the room is light and airy, with embroidered duvet cover, quilted blanked, sampler (not done by Katy), along with Chinese fans and umbrellas and a large ginger jar. The bathroom is very spacious, with large shower, toilet and basin. A floral mosaic in the bathroom complete the decoration.
A full breakfast is offered between 8am and 9.30am. It includes cereals, fruit, orange juice, a fry-up in a variety of combinations or pancakes or cheese and ham, toast and jams/marmalade, tea or coffee, to set you up for your day!
The B and B offers an atmospheric oak panelled lounge for guests relax in. David is more than happy to put a light to the fire, in the evening so that guests can read books or play any of the games or jigsaws form the cupboard. There are many walking books and maps for the Crieff and Strathearn area, that you are more than welocome to borrow.
With a strong green environmental agenda, we offer local produce, home made jams & marmalades, fair trade products and mosaics from recycled materials!

sorry, but the kitchen is out-of-bounds!
We take the time to chat if guests want to, offering advice on what to see and do if required. But if you want silence, we respect that too!
Katy is always willing to discuss her mosaic art, and to show you her workshop space in the garden.
We are well travelled, but always love to hear of other peoples recommendations, and experiences, making for good conversations over the breakfast table.
You are free to come and go, as we are relaxed and informal in our approach. However, please remember that this is our home, and there are likely to be other guests staying too, so we do ask that you are considerate of us and others.
It is also a big help to us if you can let us know when you are arriving. The rooms are usually ready by lunchtime, which means that when you depart, the checkout time is after breakfast (so we can get the room cleaned and ready for the next person!).
We would expect check-in to be by 7pm, unless by prior arrangement!
My 'ARTIST’S STATEMENT' as a mosaic artist sums up a lot about me:
Working in my dry-stone lined bothy in the garden, with views over the hills, I am frequently inspired by this landscape which is reflected in my mosaics. Flowers in abundance feature in the majority of my exhibition pieces, as well as in private commissions. While many of my pieces are considered ‘decorative art’, I also enjoy making mosaics with a more practical purpose such as mirrors, table tops and garden items.
In producing my mosaics, I aim to be true to myself and my interest in recycling and sustainability by incorporating many recycled materials, including those representing me and my home town of Crieff, Perthshire (Crieff Pottery whisky jugs; remnants from a local fused glass artist, wine bottle glass and broken car windows for example).
•Travel: I love exploring new cultures and landscapes. The most memorable of my travels was motor biking in India with our two children
•Reading: I have been a member of a reading group for 12 years
•Tennis: I am an active member of our local club, and play in one of the teams
•Galleries & Exhibitions: special interest in the applied arts
•Gardening: I have a large garden with extensive borders which inspire me in my mosaics
& music - i have an eclectic taste, from eastern fusion to punk, and I love to belly dance!
