Just returned from a lovely weekend with the family at Gunsgreen. Our 4th visit and as enjoyable as ever. Comfortable and spacious accomodation, great views and a relaxed atmosphere. What's not to like?

The museum display is very good and gives an interesting insight into the history of the area. Also friendly welcome at the entrance. Shame that upper part of house is now rented out and no longer available to the public.
