We landed at Knockbain Farm airfield at very short notice, whilst flying through Scotland. David came out to meet us and when he realised that we had no accommodation booked, offered to accommodate us in his B&B. We gratefully took "pot luck" and how fortunate it turned out to be. The accommodation is delightful and we were really made to feel at home. Clean rooms, comfy beds, luxury shower and a guests' sitting room, which is beautifully appointed and enjoys quite spectacular views over the gardens and surrounding countryside.
Free WiFi helped us to plan our next day's flight.
What made our stay particularly memorable was the first class hospitality we received from Denise and David. They could not have been more helpful. Denise drove us and our luggage back to our airplane and David was a mine of useful information about flying in Scotland.
Knockbain House is certainly worth a visit.
Thank you, Denise & David for all your help.
