Welcome to Cavens 

Cavens is owned and run by husband and wife team Angus and Jane Fordyce. What sets us apart from other boutique guest houses and Scottish hotels? In a nutshell, the Cavens experience is about that personal touch, a pride in our identity and a passion for everything we do. As an award-winning, independently run business for 19 years, we have evolved a rather different way of thinking to many of Scotland’s biggest and most famous hotels. We can certainly offer a quality and character to rival those establishments, but Cavens has a far more relaxed ambiance and that friendly, personal touch that large hotels and chains simply cannot offer.

Our ethos is very much about quality and warmth, rather than quantity and cold efficiency. We may not have dozens of rooms, but are small enough to care about the finer details and every visitor who comes through our doors. As our repeat guests will tell you, the experience of staying at Cavens is more akin to staying with friends than the “one size fits all” hotel experience. From food and drink to furnishings and local art, we insist on the best, hand-picking those things our guests enjoy the most.

Committed to our region and the environment

In an era when many hotels and businesses pay lip service to their local and green credentials, we like to go the extra mile by taking action. By using local suppliers and supporting local businesses, we cause less impact and strengthen our region. But we go further than simply shopping local and reducing waste. We have invested substantially in our biomass energy system, for example, which keeps Cavens wonderfully warm even in the depths of winter, while reducing our carbon footprint.

Dog friendly policy

We do our best at Cavens to provide some dog friendly accommodation throughout the year. Well-behaved pets are often welcome, subject to our own list of "doggy house rules". However, we do ask that you contact us prior to booking so that we can discuss these with you and make sure we can cater for your chosen dates. As pet owners ourselves we always try our best to be accommodating, while also catering for those who are less keen on pets or have allergies. We are always happy to discuss your requirements, simply call us on (0)1387 880234
