Scotland October 2004

The weather wasn't as kind to us as it might have been. However, even the weather couldn't spoil this holiday with the leaves turning color being every bit as spectacular as in New England.

We stayed at Cuil-an-Duin in Perthshire, just south of Pitlochory. Their website says it all "A majestic cathedral-like avenue of Douglas Firs open up to reveal this perfect Arts and Crafts style house, hidden within secret woods. It's classic Scottish hunting lodge ambiance is complemented with a rich blend of objets d'art and fine furnishings garnered from Far Eastern travels. A welcoming log fire crackles in the drawing room with the dining room overlooking the ever changing canvas of color of 24 acres of gardens and wildlife woodlands. Sink into soft feather pillows and awake with the morning sun to enjoy spectacular views across the Tay Valley to the distant peaks of Schiehallion." We would happily go back again.
