“fabulous”
Reviewed June 3, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed at the shepherds rest for two nights and were taken aback with the scenery of the surrounding area and how well equipped the hut was, Lynda had thought if everything. There was everything you would need to cook a simple breakfast to a decent meal. We managed to cook steak and all the trimmings.

Amazing!! That's just one of a few words to summarise our stay at the shepherds rest! This place has everything you need and could possibly want to get away from everything, we fell in love with it from the first sight, the views are out of this world and go on as far as the eyes can see, the shepherds rest itself is decorated to perfection, just as you'd imagine a shepherds rest but with lovely little extras, I booked the rest as a surprise for my partners birthday, I asked Lynda our wonderful hostess as an extra if she would decorate the shepherds rest with balloons, bunting and flowers which she did beautifully, my partner was overwhelmed on arrival to say the least. We had the best weather both days/nights so good we went on walks, the wildlife was spectacular, even spotted a deer on the walks, and to cap each day off we stayed out on the decking with the barbecue until 11pm both nights under the stars! The only downside to the shepherds rest was the fact we'd only booked 2 nights and not longer. We are already planning our next visit, thankyou to Lynda for making our break what it was ..... Perfect!!

looking south to the sheep and far hills, east to the loch and cute fishing boats we slept more soundly than we had in months, the hut is a piece of jewellery finely crafted and has a delicate laura ashly like touch.all that with super shower and excellent host and hostess
we really came to rest and feel nourished. With the nearby train station an excellent base for the edinburgh fringe.
