About our home

Our crofter's cottage was originally built to accomodate workers of the Landsdowne estate in 1914. Sympathetically renovated in 1999, our cottage has become a sanctuary from the fast paced modern life. After a day of golfing, hiking or fishing in the surrounding area, one can relax in front of an open fire. A pint of Guinness before dinner in one of the many nearby restaurants is a perfect end to the day.

More about us

  1. We are a couple with three grown up children scattered around the world.

  2. John is a medical professional, and Rosaleen originally trained as a nurse and has been a homemaker for the last 15 years.

  3. We love the outdoors but enjoy retiring to our home at the end of the day with good food and even better wine.
