  • Craigengar is half a mile up a good farm track and the house is surrounded by grazing livestock: sheep all year round and cows for up to 6 months of the year. Our guests are emphatic that the benefits of being so close to our animals far outweigh their sometimes inconsiderate toileting behaviour! Gates en route often need to be opened and shut.
