We have stayed here twice. Lovely family and everything is done to make your stay as comfortable as possible. All necessities are there but lots of little touches that make all the difference. Really is a home from home. Local area is lovely with the town of Forfar nearby.

Great experience!! They really do all that is possible to make your time special. We were very interested in sharing farm life in Scotland and observed a great cross section of livestock, crops and good old farm family friendly atmosphere. They are a super family wanting to please.

Wonderful family with a very nice farm. They were excellent hosts that answered all our questions and provided a great snack for all 30 of us. We did not stay overnight but they have a very comfortable looking cottage and were very accomodating.
