We love ardverikie estate, for the beauty, the monarch reference and more. We were lucky enough to hold a blessing in the house April 2013, which surpassed our expectations, the rooms are beautiful and the gardens view stunning. As a family we also hired 4 houses on the estate, the gate lodge which is a great mini castle, spacious, fully equipped and clean. Rowan Brae which is very spacious for a family, with a huge lounge & kitchen, good bedrooms, great bathroom and again fully equipped kitchen and very clean. Gallovie No 2, a cosy modern cottage, very warm, good bedrooms, fully equipped and clean. Lastly Pinewood where we have recently stayed again, April 2014, a lovely bungalow, modern design, fully equipped and very clean. All have open fires and are close to the wonderful estate and loch laggan, which you usually don't have to share. A wonderful place of beauty, a great escape holiday. Lastly the staff are so helpful and lovely, its Highly recommended, all 13 of our party loved it.
