I have often read in the Sunday’s travellers accounts their experiences in finding the most perfect accommodation, with exquisit decor, comfortable bedrooms and welcoming hosts offering food you would die for. They must have been writing about this place.

Totally under the charms of Scotland as soon as we came here late at night, and by chance, on the first day of our stay here. Cosy and beautiful house warmth of the hospitality, superb breakfast. Mais oui, on mange bien en Ecosse.
