As usual we had an awesome week at Auld Reekie. The cabins are very nice and the hosts are very wonderful people. We enjoyed good fishing and the sights are beautiful. We saw bear, beaver, Eagle, Loons, and many ducks. We caught smallmouth bass and northern pike. I will be coming back for sure hopefully in 2014.
