Our vacation within a vacation
We spent four days at Melfort House and were sad to leave. This is a beautiful, comfortable estate house with a magnificent setting on a sea loch. Our room was spacious and the setting utterly peaceful. Host Mathew is a superb chef: We enjoyed one of his four-course dinners as well as a delicious breakfast everyday. We enjoyed the other guest but felt we also had privacy. This place is a gem!
