    Visited on a rainy Saturday morning, not knowing much about this museum in advance. We were very pleasantly surprised by the experience - great exhibitions on rural history with artwork, old equipment and tractors. We took the tractor ride up to the farm, most of the animals were keeping out of the rain but we saw some cute calves and piglets, and toured the beautiful old farmhouse, which has a truly fascinating history. There is also a cafe with lovely views, picnic tables and a play park. We look forward to visiting again with our nieces and nephews in fairer weather!

    My wife is in a wheelchair and the walk around the loch is very pleasant. The signs say it's 1200m and it's pretty flat so pushing the chair isn't hard and on a pleasant day it's very nice to get out. There are benches at several places and the ducks wander between the loch and the grassed areas.
    We went to the café afterwards and had a drink and cake while we sat and looked out over the loch. Again very pleasant.
    I haven't tried them but there are water sport available and I've seen families and groups getting into them and they do look like fun.

    Really enjoyed my walk in Langlands Moss. I have been back several times now with my dog and it has become one of our favourite walks. Lots of wildlife to be seen if you have a sharp eye and the scenery is quite something. 😊

    Be prepared to get involved if you take youngsters here, a bit of energy is required but you will have loads of fun. My grandaughter certainly did, the canteen on site is handy as you can feed the weans and watch as they play from the sidelines.

    Love this pool but would be good if there was more public opening times before 6. Swimming area changing rooms, showers could be cleaner. Gym is never too busy, lots of choice, equipment, classes etc.

    Came primarily for the cocktail tasting session, but decided to have dinner too. I have to say this was the best food I’ve ever had at the Auldhouse, first class! I had the chicken Kiev, it was amazing! Really generous portion, super crispy crumb coating and succulent garlic chicken inside. Served with mash and asparagus plus 2 sauces. After an interlude I followed this with the tarte Tatin, also really good and served with salted caramel ice cream- yum! My sister thoroughly enjoyed her choice of chicken supreme and biscoff cheesecake. The cocktail tasting- brilliant value at £20 for 5 drinks. However they all arrived at the same time, so some were a bit melted by the time we got to them! I liked 3/5 of them! Service was a bit slow to start, but improved as the night went on. It was really busy so there was a good atmosphere in the place. Only negative: Toilets are still in need of a refurb.

    The Greenhills bar is a wonderful place to catch up with mates over a pint!
    The staff are wonderful and contribute to a great atmosphere in the pub, the locals are amazing and always have something interesting to say.
    I would rate it higher if I could!

    Decent pints, well priced, and a good atmosphere behind the bar from James, Astrid and Carla. Not a bad stop on a Saturday afternoon.

    We have visited here a few times over the years. Mentioned it to the kids during the week and they were buzzing to go again! Big selection of “plaster” models to choose from. Good atmosphere for a chilled Saturday afternoon. I didn’t paint but when the kids went to the soft play you can’t help but pick up the brush and tidy up their work. Very addictive fun! Time flies by.
    Owner very chatty and the two girls working were very friendly and accommodating. The coffee was great!!! A good family afternoon.

    Booked a spa day for myself and my friend with facial treatments (which were lovely, very relaxing) from Laura and Beth who were so polite, helpful and knowledgeable. The 2 things I would say are that there was no notification of lack of restaurant facilities (due to COP 26) which was inconvenient and we also had no access to drinking facilities on the poolside so had to bother staff to get us this. This brings me to the other problem, I worked in Leisure for over 20 years and I was concerned about the hygiene/cleanliness of the swimming pool itself. I first noticed the lack of clarity and thought it may just be cloudy due to chemicals and lack of circulation/filtration however when I got into the pool I could smell a foul smell from it as though it hadn’t been backwashed/cleaned recently. This is a shame because I really wanted to come back but I have been put off by this and hope it can be resolved.

    I've been having LED light therapy with Yvonne at Peaceful Haven. I can recommend this treatment! My skin has improved so much. People are noticing that my complexion is glowing and that I look younger. Thank you so much Yvonne!
