The welcome was genuine and warm - greeted with with tea, scones and shortbread on arrival. My bike was wheeled indoors and stayed secure throughout. A good hot bath with plenty of water in a warm room relaxed tired muscles. Drying facilities dealt with my wet clothes. A helpful phone call to the nearest hotel (about one mile distant - in England) ensured that I was well looked after for supper (excellent home made tomato soup but generally medium priced well cooked food and wine). A comfortable bed and a great breakfast with a choice of full Engllsh / Scottish or scrambled eggs and smoked salmon and coffee made my short stay refreshing and cheerful - just the thing after a long run down from Ochiltree the previous day in the rain.
