Having both worked in the hospitality sector for a total of 18  years between us, you can be sure of a warm but professional welcome from Euan and myself, Gordon. As a guest in our home which includes my baby brother Alexander (typical teenage boy but also with experience in hospitality so he knows how to look after our guests!) and our 3 rescue pets; Bear, an adolescent American bulldog who’s soft as anything; Ruben, a Norwegian Forest cat who thinks he is a snow fox; and Slippers, a bitser moggy who thinks everyone is his new bff - you will need to be pet friendly.In fact, you can bring your own pets if you want to as long as they are happy to socialise with ours. If you are missing your non-human best friend, feel free to adopt ours for the duration of your stay.  

Our rooms are comfy and well equipped without being fussy; each has a flatscreen TV, a tea & coffee station and all are en suite. There is a guest lounge where you can borrow a book if you have forgotten yours or you can simply relax with put your feet up and watch TV on our large flatscreen with all Sky channels.  

Breakfasts are cooked to order and the ingredients are sourced locally where we can. We can also make you homemade packed lunches, just ask for details.  

We very much hope that you will find Bamse B&B a little slice of home from home.


All of our rooms have been designed to offer the perfect combination of personalised home comforts with a touch of luxury.

Bamse was a St. Bernard that became the mascot of the Free Norwegian Forces during the Second World War. Bamse was owned by Captain Hafto of the Norwegian Navy, and went to sea with him on the minesweeper, Thorodd. He is linked to Montrose where the Thorodd was stationed, and as tales of his adventures and courage spread, he became an iconic figure in the town.

In 2006, a campaign to recognise Bamse's link to the town was headed up by Henny King, which raised the money to erect a statue overlooking the harbour and was unveiled by the Duke of York, Prince Andrew.
