    “Arrived on the 14th March 2020.”

    Harriet the owner spoke to me a few days before she was so lovely . Our stay was enjoyable and Harriot again checked in on us via text to see if we were ok , when the uk government announced the news about this dreadful virus. We felt very safe staying in the apartment we did not meet any of the staff or owners.

    Harriet the owner spoke to me a few days before she was so lovely . Our stay was enjoyable and Harriot again checked in on us via text to see if we were ok , when the uk government announced the news about this dreadful virus. We felt very safe staying in the apartment we did not meet any of the staff or owners. It was a real shame we could not have a tour of castle but safety comes first, hopefully we will go again during better times. It is a beautiful really big spacious apartment with beautiful grounds. We saw deer, pheasants and hares early morning, the view is quite something over looking the grounds. The beds were very comfy and heating was great and plenty of fluffy white towels. The welcome pack and toiletries were a nice surprise too. The apartment was very clean and lots of cleaning stuff available. During our stay we made the best of it and visited lots of places in the surrounding area. Edinburgh Castle, Craigmiller Castle, Jedburgh Abbey , Mary Queen of Scots visitor centre Jedburgh and Rossyln Chapel which is breathtaking where they filmed the Da Vinci Code all these places were near enough empty during our stay with the current situation. But was still good. I would recommend joining Scottish Heritage we did a family membership and saved a lot of money on entrance fees if you pay by dd you get 10% off so no initial outlay only £7.95 a month. The shop in the village Pathhead was handy and there were two pubs which were open still when we were there serving goid food and staff were very friendly. Just need to mention the stairs up to apartment, we are over 50 and quite fit so we did not find it a problem, infact it added to the fun of our stay. My husband said blimey dont need to go to gym anymore. Thank you The Jamieson family
