My family and I had just spent 10 days in Scotland visiting relatives and we chose The Ruin at Maspie House as a base. How many b&b’s can boast of being part of a well-stocked, art gallery and gift house, is tastefully furnished and well-located within Falkland village right next to the palace?
This was one of our best vacation choices that ticked all our boxes. The House was so comfortable, and the attention to details, right from the type of books on the shelf, to the basket of snacks, the jar of jellies, the soft beds, and the Molton Brown toiletries as well as the retractable roof that let a lot of light in...made this choice of a b&b second to none.
John, our host, was the epitome of Scottish hospitality, often offering suggestions and giving tips, and generously offering our son the loan of his bike should he wanted to take it out for a ride on a rare sunny day.
On Christmas Day, John dropped by the house with a tray filled with festive cheer. We had a bottle of prosecco and Christmas crackers. Love the kind thought.
Here’s why having the Ruin attached to the Maspie art gallery was a treat. When John wanted to leave us a message when we were out and about, I loved it that he wrote it on a postcard with the print of Fife pop artist Dominic Currie on it. This in itself was a wonderful keepsake, a piece of Scottish creativity that I could take home with me.
Because I love the craftsmanship and creativity of Scottish artists, like Louise Browne, I purchased a couple of gifts for myself from her brand Queenie Browne at the gallery too.
The Ruin At Maspie House is definitely a one stop shop choice for a fabulous stay and great gifts too.
