My family recently stayed in The Ruin and we enjoyed every moment! This was our first stop in our adventure in Scotland and a week was definitely not enough. The place was gorgeous, beautifully appointed, and welcoming, especially after a long day of touring and hiking. The farm grounds were so relaxing, and we enjoyed taking a walk through the sheep farm at night. My kids played with Tracy's kids, laughing, hanging out, and coming up with all sorts of new games. Their laughter was proof that this is a place where we felt like home!
Muirhall Farm is conveniently located in a quaint town that has a few restaurants (Robertson's is great!) and a bakery. It is also about 20 min from Livingston, which has everything you need, including a grocery store and outlet mall. It is about 45 min to downtown Glasgow, 35 min to Edinburgh, just over an hour to Stirling Castle, and about an hour and a half to St Andrews. Google Maps is your friend here, with all the small roads that take you through the gorgeous countryside.
I cannot leave a review without recognizing Tracy and her welcoming smile and helpfulness. She was there when we needed her and left us a great fruit basket, biscuits, wine, and milk when we arrived. She is friendly and really dedicates herself to making sure the farm, and all of the residents, are well cared for. It is rare to find someone like her!
Overall, we really can't say enough about our experience. We can't wait to go back!
