    This lovely upstairs room with a bright, private detached bath (with tiled tub and shower) is named for beautiful Scottish heather. Heather provided material for brooms and thatched roofs. You'll rest well under the eaves on a king bed dressed with a gorgeous hand-stitched quilt and cozy duvets. Wall-mounted flat-screen TV. Personal amenities are for your use. Tea and coffee service, sodas and snacks are always available. The Heather Room has access to an adjacent attic room with a 1/2 sized door (see photo). Enjoy gazing out the small window or cozy up on the little futon with lots of pillows, quilts, books and games, lit by a charming antique lamp.

    Reflecting the romantic Scottish Celtic tradition, this first-floor room is a lovely getaway for two with queen-size bed, en suite bath, and private walled garden with a small fountain. Quilts are original designs, completely hand-stitched and combined beautifully with duvet, fresh crisp linens, lovely pillows, and bright white towels for your comfort. In-room coffee, tea, sodas, snacks, fridge and microwave. There is a large wall-mounted flat-screen TV.

    We remember the Scottish America's Cup racing yacht, Thistle, with this comfortable second-storey room. Private bathroom is right down the hall.
