We were driving up to Oban and decided that we would break the drive around the Lockerbie/ Beattock area. Marchbankwood House seemed to be well placed and well priced so we chose it. What an excellent choice it was!
After following the excellent instructions (not the Sat/Nav) and finding the length drive up to the house we were greeted by our friendly host and the adorable young dog Charlie and shown to our room.
This was a huge room overlooking the garden and distant hills. The bed was very comfortable and there was a spacious shower room. Tea/coffee, biscuits and sweets were in the room and an interesting folder with previous guest reviews of local restaurants and pubs was given to us to help us chose where to eat that evening.
Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice. I had some of the best eggs I have had for years. It was served in the diningroom with the same excellent views as our bedroom.
We will certainly use Marchbankwood House again if travelling North and would be more than happy to use it for a longer stay sometime.More
