Staying at Clynelish Farm was such an extraordinary experience that I don’t even know what to start with. So maybe start with the place itself? Clynelish Farm is a nineteenth century (1865) house that belonged to high-classes together with large surrounding terrain. It looks marvelous and sits surrounded by fields, farms and animals (hares and deers are a commonplace in the area) and has Clynelish whisky distillery as a neighbour, who actually owns the house and rents it to current landlords. The house is really big and quite many rooms are available for guests. On top of the rooms that we stayed at, there was a living room with a fireplace which was a perfect place for the evening and a separate dining room for breakfast with wonderful view to the surrounding fields and hares running by. The landlords are a super friendly and caring couple – an Australian girl, Victoria and her Scottish husband, whose name we didn’t learn. They run a huge sheep and cattle farm and a B&B as a side business, which you couldn’t tell, as the level of preparation, friendliness and openness to cater to all our needs was extraordinary. The choice for breakfast was more than you would expect from a B&B and the quality was there as well. After breakfast we asked if we could see the farm and Victoria took us to see the baby lambs that were just born a few days before – truly amazing. To cut the long story short – if you’re looking for a truly magic experience in northern Scotland, this is a place for you, and a place we would come back to without any hesitation.
