"Highland taste"

Negative: The farm track is a little annoying between gates to open and close and mud, but we could easily drive with a small car. It is also hard to heat if you are no experienced with stoves. The m… More

"Superb holiday barn in a great spot with outstanding views"

The barn was easy to book with the owner and we had a four night mid week break with the kids. The barn was lovely and spacious inside and the wood burning fire was lovely once we got the hang of lighting warmed through the whole barn. The huge window at the front was special as we could see all the countryside, waking up to that wonderful view was great. Would definitely book this again.
