    • Hi, Mary. It is a Care Home now. Much of the land round is owned by the Lennel Estate, and it is great to be able to roam around through the woods and fields. There is no law of trespass in Scotland, so as long as one doen’t go direct into people’s private gardens, one can go wherever one likes, one of the best things about being in this part of the world.
