We have been making some improvements to the lower ground floor in Kinblethmont House. It is a great place for children to let off steam or for adults to kick back and watch the footie! It opens up onto the terrace for relaxed BBQs and croquet matches.

We were delighted to hear in the announcement yesterday that most schoolchildren are able to return to school after the easter holidays in Scotland. We were however, very disappointed that we will have to wait until 20th April until we get any more details on the route out of lockdown regarding holidays. It is very frustrating for us all so until we hear more we will only be taking new bookings as follows.

May – single household bookings from Scotland
June – Single household bookings from UK
July/August – Maximum 2 household bookings from the UK

On the farm this week we are planting our Golden Promise malting barley. We have been growing it for generations and it is the chief ingredient of Timothy Taylor’s Landlord ale. Now doesn’t that make you feel thirsty!

We are delighted with our new recycled plastic bench at top of Kinblethmont hill. The view is stunning and it is the perfect place for our guests to chill and watch the sun set.
