- Very Good
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!
