“Spectacular!”
Reviewed 4 August 2009

This was one of the most beautiful places that we have ever seen. We are only sorry that we couldn't stay longer. Tucked away in a very small town, but well worth the trip. Wonderful hospitality,beautiful house, beautiful accommodatitions, beautiful gardens and grounds, delicious food -- we even got to meet the family pets! A definite place to return to if we ever get back to Scotland.

A little over 40 minutes drive from Edinburgh Airport, Kirklands is a real hidden gem. First impressions are of a grand Victorian home, sat in extensive and well-maintained grounds – and the interior doesn’t disappoint either!
Peter and Gill, the owners of Kirklands, provide a warm and friendly welcome to their family home. One thing is apparent when meeting them – this is not just a business for them, but a true labour of love, and that care and attention shows in every aspect of what they provide.
The rooms are comfortable, with many contemporary touches that are well thought out and well executed.
Kirklands breakfasts are hearty, filling and made all the better by knowing that if the ingredients haven’t come from the garden at Kirklands, they’ve been sourced as locally as possible.
Ultimately, Kirklands is the ideal base to tour Central Scotland, being less than an hour from Edinburgh, Stirling, Perthshire and Glasgow, or the ideal place to escape the hustle and bustle of urban living, and enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside.

We have just returned from a weekend at Kirklands and one of the first things we did was to head on over to Tripadvisor to make sure everyone knows how good a place this is.

After a hearty cooked breakfast where everything (except the mushrooms) was locally sourced and unbelievably tasty. My wife and I spent Friday at the nearby Knockhill race circuit (5 minutes drive away) where I became a real petrol head screaming round the track. Fun fun fun!

The room itself is very spacious, comfortable and well furnished with bottles of mineral water, shortbread and Arran Aromatics toiletries provided. The hosts were friendly but unobtrusive, the house and gardens themselves are very impresive with a high level of decor throughout.

The proximity to Edinburgh makes it a viable day trip (we went to see Miss Saigon at the Edinburgh playhouse).

To sum up, a beautiful big house that makes you feel very welcome and provided a very high standard of food to match the accomodation.

Loved it!
