Cozy home

  • 5 of 5

We have been like in our own house. Owners have been very warmy and detailed.

Wij verbleven in een schitterend ingericht huisje. Centraal gelegen. Heel aardige ontvangst.

  • 5 of 5

Het huisje was de eerste keer prima te vinden. We werden heel hartelijk ontvangen door de eigenaar. Koekjes en een flesje whisky evenals thee suiker en vaatwastabletten. Het huis ligt heel rustig. Zonder auto is het geen doen. Met de auto kun je vrij snel van alles bezoeken. Fans van Outlander kunnen hun hart ophalen aan plekken bezoeken waar gefilmd is. Met de auto naar een park & ride en dan de bus of trein naar Edinburgh nemen is ook een aanrader. Het weer viel tegen maar dat kun je hier verwachten. Het verblijf is ons prima bevallen. Veel dank aan Lesley!
