A Few Kind Words

“Lovely cottage, a delight to stay in. The garden a gift from heaven. Lossett Inn a wonderful find and the Barony Bike place has excellent coffees and cakes. So central in position: holiday included a trip to the V&A in Dundee, the magnificent Glen Clova with snow on hills and autumn on the trees and an outstanding Skippenish concert at Pitlochry Festival Theatre. We look forward to returning.”
