I'd read on Conversation Pieces, one of the few non-sewing related blogs I follow, about a break she'd been on, in an architect designed bothy, on a farm, near Dumfries. We had this past week already booked off work, with the intention of doing some DIY, and after having a look on the website, made a snap decision to book it for 2 nights! I am a sucker for a beautifully designed building, but I was almost as sold on the no wifi, no mobile, no TV aspect as much as the beautiful bothy and the gorgeous scenery. Actually I had a mobile signal and P had 3G too, but we unconsciously agreed to still forgo our phones for a day or 2.
The weather was absolutely gorgeous. Chilly in the shade, but the sun shone and shone - the best Scottish weather you can have! Small boy spend most of the time running around outside and playing on the decking.
That is when he wasn't riding on the quad bike with the farmer and visiting hours-old newly born lambs!

All in all (apart from the intermittent hot water availability) it was pretty damn perfect!
