The house was fantastic, had everything you could want. The underfloor heating throughout was amazing especially after a day out walking in the hills. The kitchen is well stocked with crockery and utensils and an impressive range cooker. The 2 large fridges were ideal, and the table in the kitchen great for breakfast. The dining table was very grand with floor to ceiling windows looking out to the countryside. Deer in the fields every morning. The 1st sitting room had a lovely wood burner and great sound system. The 2nd livingroom had a TV and dvds and a very comfortable sofa. The pool table next door brought out peoples competitive streak! The layout is great, lots of space, very light and open. Worked really well, allowed for people to have a quiet 5mins if they wanted as so much space. The bedrooms were spacious, the master was huge with an amazing set of speakers. Again nice and warm and quiet. All in all a tremendous house, couldn't fault it and will certainly be back in the future for other special occasions. It's ideal for a gathering, or just to escape the world for a few days and wind down. The local walks are great, we went over the swinging bridge and up to a stone circle, lots of wildlife. Good location for hillwalking as not a far drive to Glen Muick and the stunning scenery there. Very friendly and helpful owners.

Gisela was also helpful allowing us to arrive a little early and to leave later on the Sunday as there was no one else arriving and that was appreciated as was the bottle of wine on arrival. No fire laid, but there is a man a few doors down you can by logs/peat from so you don't need to bring your own. Downside was that the wifi was very poor - you have to piggy back on the owner's router with a booster which cut out regularly so download any music/movies before you go! NB. It was ideal for a couple but as the rooms are open to the main floor downstairs there would be little privacy for 2 couples or those with kids!
