I actually can't comment on the standard of this accommodation as we didn't actually get to stay here!
Having booked my room way back in February, I am fairly certain there was space for us to stay!
However, just 2 days before we were due to stay, and whilst we were already on our travels around Scotland, I received notification from the owner to say that our booking had been cancelled. I contacted him by telephone to be told they had accidently double booked our room and we could no longer stay there. They offered to find us an alternative place to stay. It took until the afternoon of our booking to be advised where we were staying & we arrived there it was dreadful & we chose to find our own place to stay.
The owner's attitude from Hillhead Farm was arrogant and unapologetic. We were incredibly fortunate that we even were able to receive and email notifying us of a problem whilst we were travelling.
In the circumstances, I think we had a lucky escape and the place we chose to stay in the end was a fantastic find! They say things happen for a reason........
Wouldn't recommend anyone tries to book this place though - there doesn't appear to be a first come, first served, fair policy!
