This has been a lovely break for us.  The weather could have been better but it’s not been cold so hasn’t stopped us from venturing out.

The cottage (Glenfruin Lodge) is very comfortable and didn’t miss a thing from home.  The bed was wonderful & so much room.

We’ll definitely be recommending this one.  Spotted an eagle in the trees to the left of the patio, but didn’t see ‘Shadow’ (the cat).

Thank you for a lovely stay.
