Reading the other reviews has made me smile, bringing back memories of stays that Will Self described as "putting up with the laird", although the laird himself is intelligent, interesting and charming and can be relied upon for stimulating after dinner conversation, while anecdotes about the Raj or the Red Arrows (with photos, the ancient rifles and tiger skin featured...

We stayed at several places in Shetland. This was by far the best and most interesting. We were made very welcome and nothing was too much trouble for our hosts.

In all my years of travelling I can never remember counting down the minutes until I could leave a hotel, then punching the air with joy as I left the hotel premises, relieved at last to have escaped ... that was until my visit to Buness House.
