"Beautiful house in beautiful surroundings"

We chose this house as it was conveniently located for a re-union of Uni friends, some who live in England, some in Scotland. It's located only about 10 mins from the motorway. The house is beautiful, and very well equipped and maintained. We were a group of 11 adults and 4 infants. The site does say it may not suitable be suitable for infants due to the close proximity of the river, but we had no issues with this, the river is well fenced off from the garden. The bedrooms are stunning and bathrooms equally so. The kitchen is well- equipped and fantastic as a family room while the toddlers ate. The reception rooms are spacious and there's even a large formal dining room, where we ate our Indian takeaway on our first night! It was November when we were there so, yes, it was cold, but that's only to be expected, so bring slippers and a warm jumper or 2! The crowning glory for us was the grounds. The toddlers loved it, splashing in puddles and collecting leaves. We can't recommend Dumcrieff highly enough and look forward to booking it again soon.
