Just home from a fabulous weekend at Altskieth. Stayed with friends and family to celebrate a birthday. In spite of the house being full there was plenty of space for everyone, including our dog.
The house has recently changed hands and the very friendly new owners have started on a renovation and upgrade programme.
The setting is truly magnificent, right on the shores of Loch Ard and the views are stunning. Ben Lomand had an icing sugar sprinkling of snow. How wonderful to wake up to such views.
We found everything we needed in the house, the beds were comfortable, towels thick and fluffy and everywhere was spotless.
I recommend the clay pigeon shooting at a nearby farm. We had a very entertaining afternoon.
All in all a beautiful house, perfect for a celebration and Alison helped fix us up with the shooting and with local caterers who cooked us an excellent meal. Will definitely return!
