The kitchen and dining area are separated from the living area by a central wood burning stove. The comfortable living area has a leather sofa, two wing back chairs, TV and a selection of games, books and local maps. The upstairs has a glass balcony, a king and single bed, to give flexibility in sleeping arrangements, and a shower room. Towels, linen, a box of logs, gas and electricity are included in the rental costs. Outside there is a small garden with table and bench seats and off road parking for up to 2 cars. For people wishing to explore further, the farm track is a pleasant walk and usually our fold of pedigree Highland Cattle can be seen. They vary in age from calves born in 2020 to mature cows and our bull, Alexander. A few of our cows are pregnant, with their calves expected in April and May 2021. More
