Visited with 3 friends this National Trust for Scotland property. The guides inside this cottage are very knowledgeable and interested in this old building. Check out the drawers of tartan swatches in the parlor. Fascinating!!

Visited with my daughter and grandson. Very interesting and informative. Lovely guide who is very knowledgable and keen to pass on facts. We had a weaving demonstration and grandson had a try - which pleased him no end!
