This old hotel is well worth the stay. The room we had was large and overlooked the gardens.

We arrived in a small town and quickly found the hostel and checked in. We found out that out of all 7 rooms we were the only three people in the whole hostel staying there, that's how small town it was. It did have a beautiful kitchen that was all ours! We headed to the grocery store so ...
We are told about the family and the line of succession, which only passes down the male line. Yes, even in this day and age! Turns out the last laird had five daughters but no sons so the line has died out. We also learn about a very bad tempered laird whose motto is 'doe not vaiken sleiping dogs' (let sleeping dogs lie). This particular laird is said to have chased a lad who was sweet on his daughter up the tower. ...
