    The owner could have done no more for use then she did and the bird feed in her garden, seen from the Byre was entertaining with woodpeckers, coal tits etc. The Byre was over equipped for us, ( a personal thing, we like knobs and switches not apps )yet for most people it will be almost perfect. We did miss a conventional oven and we do like to cook on gas, yet if you are into induction hods and other semi automatic stuff (lighting, heating, shower ) and a wood fire stove, then the place is great. We really enjoyed the wood fire which we used by turning off the other heating or to very low. The ethos of the Bryer is good, with highly insulated walls and solar slates on the roof thus one knows that ones carbon footprint is low.

    Lovely cottage with a very warm welcome Only slight criticism No wi fi available and a very poor phone signal made contact with the outside world a little difficult. Limited hot water for showers too because of the system installed, only 2 people could shower at any time before the water ran out Having said that ,would happily stay there again knowing these minor problems

    The Byre was lovely and nothing was too much trouble. Exactly what we needed for our annual reunion.

    Absolutely perfect accommodation with everything you could wish for. All the kitchen utensils one would use at home were there, together with really good quality bedding and towels, such comfort with a stunning area to explore, we will go again.
