    The Scottish Crannog Centre is definitively one of my favourite place of that region. The guide we had was amazing and it was fun to dress up 🙂

      I loved all the natural dyes and herb gardens, things I felt I should maybe try at home.

    We almost stayed at the Moness at our last trip but it didn’t work out. We wanted to do that Highland drive. I’m now saving it for the next time we go. You’ve really tempted me 🙂

      So much for families in Perthshire and Moness worked especially well, best of both worlds – self-catering and hotel.
