Caiplie has seen a few transitions over the years;
From bakers and tea-room in Victorian times through to B&B Guest House. The change to B&B happened in 1977 after almost a century of being first Duncan the bakers then Fisher and then Fisher and Donaldson bakers.
Many locals still remember the bakers shop here with the bakehouse out on the back lane. There was also a time when ice cream was sold from the front window!
A number of owners offered meals to residents and non residents. Dinner at Caiplie and Caiplie Bistro saw a seasonal restaurant appear and most recently John McFetridge of Mountain Relish offered Coastal Relish @ Caiplie
Yet again this grand old lady has had a transformation....now back to the original dimensions of the Victorian house and available to let as one holiday house. It is a cracking house if we say so ourselves.
In this latest transition we added a gas central heating system. This will make the house comfortable for groups all year round. With the two open fires totaly toastie actually!
We had to get into the heart of the old house, floorboards up doors off etc but the result was worth it!
