Thanks Billy and Erin (two Scots living far away from home in Mackenzie Country) for your warm hospitable welcome!
I stayed two nights and considering I've had a few issues with $$$ of late I was glad they were more than happy to wait for some funds to come through.
Rooms were tidy and homely, I enjoyed the thick duvets and the room heating.
Only downside was the disabled shower/toilet having a strong ammonia/urea smell.
The log fires were great and loved curling up in the common room reading a book, with a great view of course!!!
Thanks again for all your help and I will return in 2015!
