Watch out: wanted to stay at Scottish Tartan in January 2015. They show very nice photos on the website. But when i arrived, things looked much different. Got shown different rooms: dark, very simpel. and much smaller than you might guess from the photos. As 'safe deposit box' I got offered a simple drawer at the reception... that was a... More

The owner (William... More
