Allanfauld is a working beef and sheep farm which has been run by the MacGregor family since 1926. With a young family of five, Libby MacGregor set up the bed & breakfast business more than 20 years ago – she aims to provide a homely, relaxed and welcoming atmosphere for guests, delivering a comfortable stay, with a quality home-cooked breakfast.
Three rooms are available within the farmhouse, and a self contained luxury wooden house situated in the garden, which sleeps 2-3 people.
