This is an outstanding property and venue particularly if you like walking. It is near Kinross which is a lovely town and Lake Leven is also a great attraction - yet places like Edinburgh and St. Andrews are only about 40 mins away. The house is wonderful and it was hard to drag ourselves away - we hope to return!
