We booked last year (before the virus) and decided not to cancel. Glad we didn't. Although lots of Tourist places weren't practical or open fully (if at all) we had fun.
The hot-tub was an instant hit (the bar over the top is for levering the cover on and off. Fold one side of the cover over the bar and lever the bar mechanism off the tub with the cover draped over it). I didn't know how it worked at first. I thought it was just there to weigh the lid down in wind! I’m blaming age but the Wife said it was my duplidty or something.
The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was clean, bright and spacious. Everything was clean and well set out. Even the sheep in the field looked particularly clean, then it rained and I realised why. Funny little things just standing in the rain shouting at each other. The kitchen had everything you could need. Once we worked out how an electric hob works, we were good to go with our cooking masterclass (beans). It was our first venture into Scotland but we'll be back. Over ten years ago we took a Fostered child on his first ever holiday. Before storms were given names. We took him to the lake district camping! I don't think he'll want to go camping as an adult hahaha. In Dumfries we brought our Fostered child and Grandson to much more luxurious accommodation. They enjoyed it. Although it rained, the cabin was perfect. We cheated a bit and took an Xbox so both boys didn't get too bored.
The long drives between one closed down place and another was interesting and passed the time as the boys stared at their phones (I don’t think they noticed much so it was a success). Reminded me of taking my own child out in the car to help him sleep as a baby. These two boys are just the same (14 & 15) if you give them technology everything and everybody ceases to exist and time speeds up. We could do a review on supermarkets and petrol stations because they were open and we seemed to leap-frog from one to another collecting carrier bags. Crisps, pop and popcorn don’t buy themselves.
After each journey parking the car in the private driveway to make the short dash through torrential rain from car-door to cabin-door was welcoming. When the sun came out it was glorious and even with the changeable weather it wasn’t cold. We had the sliding patio doors open a lot and used the tub a lot. The cabin is very relaxing and out of the way amongst hills and farms. Its homely and peaceful. We might be back and would highly recommend.
