One of the most memorable stops on our trip through Scotland in 2009. We are thinking of going again next fall and just decided to see the web site again, when I saw of the devastation. I am glad they... are on the mend again, and I know it will even be better than before.. best of luck, and I will hope the renovations are done by this fal, as we would love to stay there again!!
