A new recommendation for this year: check out Tullibole Castle
. They run a wonderful sounding
B&B and self-catering business. I love the idea of staying in an early 17th Century "laird's house" - see the Canmore entry
for it. I came across the castle when I dropped in from the air on 18th March 2012: I landed just across the road in my glider, after running out of lift.
