This was our second stay at Highland Peaks (the first one was in 2007) and it was--if possible--even better than the first time! Di and Peter Espie are extraordinary hosts; their hospitality is unfailingly warm, gracious and so generous you never want to leave. The accommodations are lovely, with every comfort and amenity you could want (and some you probably hadn't even thought of). Wonderful food, spectacular views, a cozy fireplace, comfy places to curl up and read...and of course there are all those fabulous nature destinations nearby that they're only too happy to help you navigate. Really, who could ask for more?
