28th February – 5th March 2024

We’ve had such a lovely stay here at Crosskeys Cottage! We can’t believe how lucky we have been with the weather too, bright sunshine & thankfully missed the snow back at home (the midlands).

The news & walks we’ve been on have been incredible, Pucks Glen, near Dunoon was our personal favourite.

Most importantly our dog ‘Atlas’ has had the best time exploring with us and we celebrated his 6th birthday here.

Thank you so much for having us, it’s been wonderful!

Grace, Harvey and Atlas
