A lovely quiet retreat, set amongst the fields, a beautiful garden full of birds and other wildlife in the woodland. Lots to explore in the area - gardens, beaches, castles, forests and of course the whisky distilleries.

From the Owner

The cottages are set away from roads and are very peaceful and comfortable. Somewhere quite different for a cosy romantic hideaway or respite from a busy life.
