Welcome to the winter issue of
Country Lifestyle Scotland


Welcome to the winter issue of Country Lifestyle Scotland. It's been a busy year on the work front. Life in magazines and newspapers goes around in weekly, monthly and quarterly cycles, sometimes you just need to jump off the crazy train and take a break, and that's where Douneside House comes to mind.

I was asked to review Douneside without much in the way of knowledge of the hotel and the story attached. But if you are involved in farming you will recognise the name MacRobert from various well known buildings, eg, The MacRobert Pavilion at The Highland Show.

I will let you read the article which starts on page 34 to understand the background story of the MacRobert family, but I will say that there are some places that make a big impression from the moment you arrive, and this was one of them. A stunning location, a homely welcome and an incredible menu. If you are looking for somewhere special for a break, get online and book yourself a treat.

We also feature a Christmas gift guide, which I hope you find useful, and we discover a wonderful new talent in Sophie Cotton whose artwork is quite remarkable.
