"It was a breath talking holiday. Happy and thankful I am going home. Looking forward to come back."
Heike, Berlin, Germany 

"From the first moment of our arrival we felt welcoming and comfortable in the beautiful cottage. We will recommend the lovely place to family and friends."
Zoller, Schwaikheim, Germany 

"What can I say what a fab  place to stay, the “Hayloft” is a stunning cottage with all the home comforts and very cosy. The kids enjoyed their stay very much playing with Dillon and getting very muddy on the farm. We have all had a very relaxing time and will definitely be back. Chris and Gabi you are a friendly couple and your farm is a credit to you both. Once again thanks for having us."
Clare, Mick, Olivia, Joshua, Bishops Stortford 

"To visit you, your country, to see the impressing landscape of Scotland, to meet nice people and to stay here in this cottage was a great experience we would like to repeat as often as possible. Thanks for this wonderful week."
Michael, Martin, Rita, Mainz, Germany 

"We enjoyed the hospitality very much and it was fun to go walking with Gabi and the dogs. It was kind of Chris to play golf with Juergen, and Gabi treated us like family members."
Fam. Sattler, Pforzheim, Germany 

"Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this outstanding accommodation. Even with 4 dogs we were enthusiastically welcomed by Chris and Gabi and other staff, plus their 4 dogs. Any information or help we needed was never any trouble! It is a wonderful area to stay with access to lots of dog walks. We will be highly recommending our friends and family to come and visit."
The Davey’s, Brandesburton, East Yorkshire and The Marsden’s, Kendall, Cumbria

"Simply stunning! Everything we were hoping for and more! “The Shire” was very comfortable and the hospitality from Chris and Gabi was outstanding. We will highly recommend it to friends and family. We will be back."

The Ashdown’s, Longlevens, Gloucester

"Beautiful buildings and surroundings, “The Byre” is just enough for 2 plus the interior is beautifully designed and to a very high standard. The help and patience form Chris and Gabi was second to none especially as I’m not a good map reader."
Paula and Richard, Midlands

"What a beautiful place! Charming, friendly family looking after us. Samuel and Zacharia think Dillon is wicked! They love the bicycles, horses and especially Teddy!"
Andrew, Sarah, Samuel, Zacharia, Seaford, East Sussex

"The family had a fabulous time. The boys are anxious for us to book again for next year or maybe convert our own farm and move here! Thank you for your hospitality we have thoroughly enjoyed our stay."
The Mile’s Family, Seaford, East Sussex

"Lovely first class accommodation. Very friendly hosts and cute dogs. Weather not to bad in the end. Would certainly recommend to friends and family. Would love to come back especially in winter time with snow on the ground, stay indoors and just relax,  reading by the fire."
The Saunders, Southampton

" We spent a great week here in The Ruin. Every time we returned from a trip, we looked forward to our cosy rooms and the comfortable fire. And as we looked through the photo album, we admired your love for the details which show up in each area. Thank you for the beautiful week and for your friendliness."
Fam. Grübl, Oberrhein, Germany

"The “Hayloft“  was our home-from-home this time. Why “this time” ?; because we could not resist returning after a 9 month absence to again sample Chris, Gabi and Dylan’s quite outstanding hospitality and exceptionally finished cottages. The ever increasing menagerie of farm animals is great fun – numerous horses, cows, countless dogs, at least one cat, a sheep with an identity crisis thinking it’s a dog, flocks of other sheep… The only animal species missing is highland cattle. After two visits we have only partially explored this wonderful area. It’s not a question of if,rather when “we will return”!!! "
The Jost’s, Swaffham Prior, Cambridgshire

"Chris and Gabi, what a wonderful place! The setting, our cottage, our hosts – all perfect. Thank you for making our visit to Scotland wonderful experience and memory!"
The Bailey’s, Brea CA, USA

"Thank you for a fantastic week! The accommodation is beautiful – just what we want for ourselves! The welcome we received from you both was second to none. You have made our week here extremely enjoyable. Thank you for your warm and friendly welcome and directions to a few places! We will be back!"
The Clark’s, Aberdeenshire

"Arrived to a very friendly welcome which continued throughout the week. Top-quality-specification cottage – best we have stayed in. Lots of great walks nearby and Edinburgh very close. Will recommend to friends and be back ourselves. Thank you."
The Grice’s, Oakmere

"Arrived to a warm welcome … and much pleasure at the quality of the accommodation. First class ++! It was fun watching all the dogs romping around together too. Thank you to Chris and Gabi and Dillon (so cute – don’t show him this till he is 16!), we have had a super time and hope to return. Thank you  - our holiday neighbours were great fun too!"
Roger and Beverly, Kirkham

"Arrived to first class accommodation and fantastic hosts that made us feel very welcome. Loads to do for both children and adults. Great walks in the area and scenery. We will be back if you will have us!… soon!"
The Jackson’s, York

"What a truly fantastic stay at Muirhall. The first few minutes after our arrival were a little scary – two things that our 14 month old lab (Max) had rarely experienced in his short life, first no lead and second five other dogs chasing him around! Max was soon very much amongst buddies !!
Chris – Ian was equally as gutted you were away this week but took full advantage of the Huxley toy!!
The cottages are an absolute credit to you and really made the trip to Scotland for us – it’s rare to receive such a welcome when you have a four legged “child” in tow!! All that’s left to say is a huge thank you for such a warm welcome – we will be back!"
Ian and Emma, King’s Lynn, Norfolk

"A perfect place to spend our honeymoon. On our journey here we were thinking “where are we! In the middle of nowhere!” However we got here and found the most beautiful cottages with everything we needed here (a big DVD collection) and everything else just 15 minutes away. We will definitely be back – hopefully next time with a dog of our own – as there is so much we haven’t seen. A week is not long enough to enjoy the cottage and everything that surrounds it. Thank you for a lovely honeymoon and a fire for David to play with."
The Wray’s, Redditch, Worcestershire

"You succeeded in quickly giving us a sense of welcome, cosiness and well-being and we much appreciated that! The furnishings are well-designed with great attention to detail and such originality throughout. Most importantly was the cordial harmony we felt throughout Muirhall."
Fam. Schmalhofer, Regensburg, Germany

"Thank you for welcoming us to your beautiful home. Scenery is fantastic and in between playing golf – we managed to visit Edinburgh and surrounding areas. We are hoping to come back and live in Scotland but you have set the bar very high! We haven’t felt like “paying guests” at all – more like visiting family so thank you for your kindness and hospitality and like the first entry in the book said – “we came, we saw, we loved it!"
The Scott’s, Essex

"We felt very much at home immediately. The cottages are really beautiful – you have designed and decorated them well. And we loved the dogs! The DVD selection, though missing Braveheart and Rob Roy has something for everyone’s taste. The wood stove in The Mill is practical and kept us very warm."
Dörflein und Leisentrift, Germany

"The “Ruin“ was the most comfortable and inviting place we have stayed in the UK! Thank you so much for the use of your lovely cottage and for your generous hospitality. We hope to come back soon!"
The Krähenbühl’s, Zimbawe

"The cordial welcome by Gabi and her family and the lovingly, beautifully furnished vacation homes immediately gave us the feeling that we would have an amazing vacation in Scotland. After becoming accustomed to driving on the left, we felt confident about going out and we had beautiful trips near and far. We always looked forward to coming back to our cosy „home.“  Our vacation was such a beautiful experience and we met such lovely people so we already are looking forward to our next stay in Scotland at Muirhall Cottages. We would like to congratulate you on the beautiful home you have created for you and your guests. "
Fam. Schumann, Germany

"We felt we could trust our decision to come to Muirhall. You gave us good advice about our wedding here in Scotland. Although you did not know us, you did not hesitate when we asked you to be witnesses at our marriage; because of this, you will remain special in our memory. Our stay here was great! The farm is simply beautiful. We can find neither criticism nor the least thing negative about it. Keep going and we’re sure you will have many guests. We will be back."
Fam. Montag, Germany

"1,000 kms. From home, you have managed to create that “home from home” feeling. Many thanks for all the ideas and stories, not least for the beautiful evening enjoying Edinburgh night life.  We will see you again, for sure!"
Tom und Diana, Germany

"It was a long way to drive but it was well worth and when we got here “The Ruin” was just fantastic and a place we would like to live in ourselves. Will recommend to our friends and family. Our dog loved it as well and we were made most welcome by Chris, Gabi and Dillon and the rest of the family."
The Slade’s, Somerset

"Thank you for your hospitality. Your cottages are excellent accommodation, and our stay here has been excellent. Hope to see you again one day."
Josephine and David, Somerset

"Lovely accommodation and great hospitality. Great place to base yourself. Thank you Chris, Gabi and Dillon we thoroughly enjoyed our time here."
The Laffey’s, New Zealand

"Fantastic accommodation, welcome and hospitality. Not only did we have a great time, it was wonderful for our dogs. Would definitely to come back and stay again."
The Pepper’s, Suffolk

"An absolutely wonderful stay. Accommodations are “world class”! Chris and Gabi were wonderful hosts and immediately made us feel part of their family. Muirhall is ideally located and is the gateway to Edinburgh, Glasgow and the Highlands. We will definitely return on our next visit!!"
The Davis’s, Adam, Grace and Ben, Oxford and Washington DC

"Thank you so much for your warm welcome and great hospitality! We loved this wonderful place from the first second! Unforgettable the trip to Crianlarich to meet Chris’ brother Peter and “The train…” and all the other special moments we enjoyed in Scotland! The cottages are all perfect – we have already discussed, which one we want to live in next time. We had a perfect time, and we go back to Munich totally relaxed and are sure, that we will come back… As soon as possible! It was a pleasure to meet you – Thanks a lot!"
The Rüterhenke’s, Munich, Germany
