I am so thankful that my traveling companion had the great foresight to look into Knockbain House for our accommodations in the Highlands. David and Denise were so helpful and the grounds were absolutely stunning! The weather was beautiful - 70's and 80's with sun, sun, sun, which we feel very fortunate to have experienced. The grounds and the rooms were delightful and the baby lambs were a source of great entertainment. Twiggy the running dog was also a source of comfort for each of us as we are pet lovers and missed our own furry creatures. I highly recommend this "home" as a place of respite amidst the busy traveling around the beauty of the Highlands. We LOVE Knockbain House, Farm and the proprietors. Very worth the drive!
