We spent 3 nights at Alladale and as soon as we left we wanted to book up another trip. Everything about it was exceptional. It was incredible to be in a place that has 23,000 acres, that is all for you - we didn't see any other guests. The set up is perfect, they provide food for breakfast and lunch then cook and deliver your dinner - which is delicious. So you get complete privacy but you are still looked after. We stayed in Eagles which had incredible views, was in the middle of the estate yet was still designed for comfort and luxury. The days were spent with John who showed us the wildlife, took us on long walks and lead us pony trekking on the most trustworthy gentle horses. And John was patient and knowledgable and so nice to spend time with. You think that going to a beach and lying in the sun is relaxing and good for winding down, but literally nothing compared to this. You feel healthy, relaxed and calm.
