We stay there for two wonderfull nights. During this 2 nights, we had great conversations with her and probably the best breakfast during the whole week. Breakfast was served in the smithy room near the old fireplace. We would love to return on our next scotland trip. Thank you und maybe in one or two years we will see us...
