Yesterday I experienced a bird of prey event - out of this world. I had booked in to the Merlindale B&B, for my wife and myself, thinking it was adjacent to the bird centre - however the event location had been changed to Bridge of Cally just north of Blairgowrie - we were, to say the least, dissappointed.
However I arrived at the Merlindale and was overwhelmed with the warmth of the reception we received from Jackie. The quality of the rooms, both public and bedrooms, are superb and the bathroom is to die for. We thought it could not get better until we went for breakfast and met John, who officiates in the dining room and provides a very warm welcome in the morning, introduces all who are staying and serves a breakfast fit for a king. On departure it was like leaving well known friends.
On arrival we asked about local eating places - Jackie recommended "The Lounge" in the town centre. We tried it - hospitality was very warming, the meal superb and the price very acceptable.
Would we recommend the Merlindale? - DEFINITELY - if you don't go you will never know what you are missing. Likewise with The Lounge - 10/15 minute walk from the Merlindale.
I know one thing for sure - we will be back.
