The charming old house reminded us of sceneries in Agatha Christie or gothic movies, in particular the wonderful lounge. Scott was a great host offering much extra service which made it not only a lovely place but also a great deal: a variety of free drinks and fruit, a great breakfast including free newspaper and much concern for individual wishes.
This is not the place for people who expect historic architecture / design but perfect renovation in all details (the building could need some renovation, e.g. carpets, but our room was very clean with comfortable bed and bathroom) or who love chats and entertainment (Scott and his staff do not live in the house but come in on demand or for services such as breakfast). But we loved the solitude and quietness in the house and its surrounding. A pub and a distillery are within walking distance, touristic attractions can easily be reached by car.
