On a whim I asked my wife if she would like to go away for the bank holiday weekend.
After getting the ok I booked the 24th through to the 26th August 2013 at the Muirfad farmhouse B&B Palnure, D&G, Scotland.
And, I must say I am extremely glad I did, from the start we were made very welcome by Baz and Sue, we got there after a long tiring drive, to be welcomed with tea, scones and jam, and, the tastiest butter I have ever had.
The bedroom and private bathroom were absolutely spotless, plus tea making facilities and sat/tv.
The gardens are beautifully designed laid out and the wildlife is amazing.
There was a good choice for breakfast, including cereals, fresh fruit, porridge and cooked meals,(try the scrambled egg with smoked salmon on toast) SUPERB!!
The full breakfast, home cured bacon, home made sausage, and for the acquired taste the haggis is very, very good, (Baz very kindly gave the name of his supplier in Creetown) I called and got a couple on my way home.
Baz and Sue could not do enough for us in the way of information, i.e. restaurants, places of interest and such.
All in all the best weekend break we have ever had.
