Fantastic house. The location is perfect, just on the edge of town so close to all amenities but overlooking the park and loch so feels quite open and country. The "upside-down "style makes for great views. The hot tub was great for relaxing after a walk. Kitchen well equipped and a lovely welcome basket.
