Enrichment for the soul
Great property location if you want to get away from city life. Saw Ospreys and White tail Eagles flying overhead in the garden. Beautiful views if lucky enough to get good weather. Local pub brilliant with impromptu Live music yukele, tin whistle etc. A great taste of Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿
