Apartment was much bigger than expected. Great views from lounge window. Fab for our group of 2 adults, 2 kids & dog. Plenty space, clean, warmed up ( eventually) and good location for ski slopes. Great wee village. Recommend village shop, cafe, and Kirkmichael hotel for food. Wasn't so keen on Lodge Hotel for food!
