Coffee/Tea and homemade cakes are availabe in the afternoon. Wake up in the morning and join us in our beautiful dining room and enjoy home cooked breakfasts with regional ingredients.

Must visit this B&B
Cawdor house is full of light - and freshly decorated. It’s furnished in a good combination of period and modern. Annika and Andy are great hosts - really delightful to talk to but also aware if you don’t want to talk. The street that Cawdor House is on is 10 minutes from the Moray Forth which has golden beaches and dolphins. We have thoroughly enjoyed our visit and also the delicious and very fresh cooking. This is a haven.
