We stayed in Comrie in Perthshire and visited The Earthquake House above. We were lucky to be there on the one day a year when it is open to the public (at other times you can look through doors and windows) and even luckier that there had been seismic activity recorded during the early hours of that morning which I thought was quite exciting.
I also felt very lucky to stay in a house designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh - a very modest commission taken on between the first and second phase of his famous Glasgow School of Art. It is looked after by the conservation charity The Landmark Trust.
Austere, but comfortable too.
The view from the window of Comrie, a comely or couthie wee place and a good centre for touring the area.
..with attractive shops, hotel and restaurants- not fancy...but I liked it.
Plain and simple.
