March, when it almost feels like Spring but the hill-tops are still dusted with a sprinkling of snow. Stay at Eastside this month as a lovely cosy cottage treat for mum on Mothers' Day. Spoil her with trips into Edinburgh, a pamper at a beautiful local spa or a fabulous supper in your country cottage kitchen with a roaring fire.

Here you can enjoy long walks and the great outdoors while safely practicing social distancing. Get delicious food delivered to your door by COOK, spend your days exploring the hills in blissful isolation and return to roaring fires, deep sofas and good books.
