When we arrived at the mansion there were a few chickens meandering around the yard which gave us a warm welcome and made us feel at home . The house was not quite as gorgeous as the pictures but certainly very clean and satisfying. We forgot to call ahead to let her know when we would arrive so the rooms were somewhat cold when we first entered the house but the proprietor immediately turned on the heat and we were quickly comfortable. The kitchen was quite adequate, although down the hall from the dinning area...but we manage fine and enjoyed the setting, It was great to be able to cook most of our meals. Although the ad said that the house was elderly friendly, an elderly person would not be able to use the tub as the sides were so high. She only takes a bath once a week anyway, so she managed with a sponge bath everyday and did just fine. The bedrooms were lovely and the beds were very comfortable. (and I am very fussy when it comes to beds).
We expected to have Wi FI but it did not work on our side of the house. We were somewhat disappointed but I would not let that stop me from staying at this house again. Karen, the proprietor, was very friendly and helpful and went beyond all of our requests. It was lovely to get to know her and it was great to deal with the same person instead of a staff of individuals that could change on a daily basis.
When we return to Scotland we would definitely wish to stay there again in spite of the few drawbacks. We loved being out the in country it was so peaceful and refreshing and we really felt comfortable and private. I would highly recommend staying here it you like peace and quiet and privacy. We had a lovely experience! Thank you Karen.
