‘Our room had beautiful views ….. and I loved sitting in the window seat as it got dark and watching the lighthouse come to life. We were particularly impressed with [the] rewilding initiative and eco credentials – we were thrilled to spot a sparrowhawk. We were thoroughly reassured by Lesley’s Covid procedures and felt really safe throughout out stay. We felt totally relaxed after our stay and hope to return soon!’

I’ve enjoyed the view from our bedroom window …….. I’ve especially enjoyed the incredible sound of silence.  This is a place to relax, reflect and find yourself.

Yet again we have enjoyed our mini-break.  A chance to recharge the batteries in a lovely setting

Our 5th visit to Troustrie and we’ve had another wonderful few days here

Wonderful hospitality.  Beautiful home – comfortable bed and fantastic breakfast!

Liz & Stephen, September 2019

Beautifully furnished home – a real pleasure to spend time in this setting, however briefly.  Fantastic baking and cooking all add to a great stay.  Made to feel very welcome.  Hope to be back.

Fiona & Moira, September 2019

After ten days in Scotland, this place is definitely the most welcoming and charming B&B we’ve had – thanks a lot for the lovely tea time and the delicious home cooked breakfast.

Having lived in Largo in the ’70s and returned almost every year to the St Andrews area that we love, especially for the excellent chamber music of the East Neuk Festival, we have arrived at Troustrie for the first time.  What perfection!  Beautiful weather, beautiful music and a beautiful house to stay in.  Generous hospitality and attention to detail (paper bin bags – not plastic!) have made the stay here relaxing and renewing, surrounded here by things of beauty in a house that has such a peaceful aura.

Another blissful break at Troustrie House.  Thank you so much for creating a beautiful home you share with your guests.  We had a lovely time visiting our son at University and will be back.

We have enjoyed this beautiful room for ten days, absolute perfection!

John & Shelley, Hertfordshire, July 2019

The harvest moon was full to give us welcome on arrival, the moonlit fields and trees made their magic.  Competing with, in a close contest, the glow of sunlight and corn fields ready to be reaped, seen from a watchful window in the 6 o’clock morning.  No words can convey the delight of such romance.
