McMurdoston house is beautiful, outside and in. It boasts spacious rooms, with character dating back to the 1500's, yet has a warm, homely and contemporary feel. The holiday cottages were having their finishing touches when I visited, I was allowed a sneak peak. Wow. Designed to high spec, every detail considered carefully, even down to the cushions on the window seats, and the ever so useful dishwashers. The decking with the view of the mountains and forest was a selling point for me. I will be booking my return for summertime. Steve & Sarah are perfect hosts - boundless knowledge of the area, genuine enthusiasm for their amazing house and much dedication and hard work into creating such a beautiful place. They should be proud. Sarah is an amazing cook. You will not be disappointed. And for those of you who are fussy, don't fret - you will be accommodated for. I stayed in the en suite room on the third floor. Gorgeous view. Spotlessly clean. Tea, coffee, biscuits, hot choc. And, the comfiest bed I have ever slept in. The walks around the area are endless. The views spectacular. And only a 15 min drive from Dumfries station. It really is a small bit of Scottish heaven. Thank you steve and Sarah.
