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.

For a family party, why not rent all of the cottages for a village party atmosphere? Gather in the Byre's double-height kitchen with some delicious canapés delivered to your door by our friends at COOK.
