Dear Scotland Fans !

Originally from Scotland, I have chosen the absolutely best locations for visting my country. This unique historic building, lovingly restored to its former splendour and also my beautiful apartment in the capital city of Edinburgh provide the perfect combination. As we use these properties as our second home we have paid particular attention to the furnishings and decor so that you also feel the home factor. I am sure you will be very comfertable in these spectacular places.

Mairi Stewart purchased this apartment in 2005

If you are visiting the Highlands there is just no better place to be. Not only are you so centrally located that you can visit all main sights within a day trip in all directions, but you also have the spectacular abbey to explore with all its sports and leisure facilities.

Combining your visit with a trip to Edinburgh just rounds off your experience of Scotland. Please ask me for a combination offer with my Edinburgh apartment.

Fabulous apartment in majestic surroundings

What a treasure we found when we booked this apartment ! A very cosy and comfertable apartment with great views and lovingly decorated - we loved the wall colour and the artwork ! With the third private sleeping alcove on the upper landing and two bathrooms it was perfect for us as a party of five - it could well be advertsied as a 3-bedroom ! We found this holiday to be great value for money as everything, like swimming pool, sauna, tennis court, pool table...was included in the price. Actually there was so much to do in the abbey that we had trouble getting the kids to go out on trips ! But we did manage to see Skye - wonderful , and we made a very hairy trip to Applecross - which was well worth the formidable drive ! We also had the pleasure to combine our trip to Scotland by staying in the owners Edinburgh apartment - also fantastic ! We would highly recommend this flat especially to anyone with kids - just like staying in Hogwarts ! The owner was extremely friendly and responded immediately to our mails - alltogether a great experience ! Thank you !
