A good friend of ours, Marshall (an ex-pat) , arranged this venue for our first night in Scotland. This B & B became our launch pad for what would be 10 days of too much whisky, pubbing and golf!
Our host Liz took us in like old friends and treated us to warm hospitality that would be repeated throughout Scotland during our stay. The rooms were well appointed and very comfortable and large enough that two guys could share without getting in each others' way. My roommate and I shared a room that would suit a family of four. (My only complaint was that my roommate (Tony) snored through the night - but this was hardly Liz's fault. I should have anticipated this, given he has done this when we share a tent together on canoe trips; but I digress).
Liz served up a tremendous breakfast with all the fixings of a traditional Scottish breakfast. She included healthy options as well such as fresh fruit, yogurt and cereals. What made the stay most enjoyable was the way that Liz made us feel welcome, like old friends who had come back home.
