“Absolutely perfect.”

Reviewed 10 Jul 2014

Thank you so much for an amazing stay in this beautiful old country house! The house is fantastic, just like the photos, clean, authentic and rustic. Located in a scenic area of Scotland this was an ideal location for me and my family. Our hostess, Linda, made sure we had everything we needed and check in/ check out was hassle free. At the end of our stay we were all sad to leave!

Thankyou - and we will be delighted to welcome you again!

“Charming and comfortable farmhouse”
