    This lovely upstairs room with a bright, private detached bath (with soaker tub and tiled shower) is named for beautiful Scottish heather. 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, coffee, sodas and snacks -- with fridge and microwave -- are always available in the sitting area outside your door. 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 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 bubbling fountain. Quilts are original designs, completely hand-stitched and combined beautifully with duvet, fresh crisp linens and lovely pillows for your comfort. Large wall-mounted flat-screen TV. In-room coffee, tea, sodas and snacks, with fridge and microwave.

    We remember the Scottish America's Cup racing yacht, Thistle, with this comfortable second-storey room. Private bathroom with tiled soaker shower is right down the hall; help yourself to personal amenities. You'll enjoy climbing into king-size bed beneath soft duvets, with four lovely pillows. Large wall-mounted flat-screen TV. Tea, coffee, sodas and snacks -- with fridge and microwave -- are always available in the sitting area outside your door.
