‘Peaceful, relaxing break in beautiful part of Scotland. Stayed at Durn House for six nights in early November 2015. Beautiful, well-maintained house. Lovely large, comfortable, en-suite bedroom with a comfortable bed. Relaxing guest lounge. Friendly staff who were happy to help; they also suggested some lovely local places to visit in this unspoilt area. Breakfast freshly cooked to order with a wide choice of food to choose from. Would love to return for another visit.’
