TRAUMURLAUB IN SCHOTTLAND

  • 5 of 5
Fife ist eine ländliche Gegend in Schottland. Das Doocot (Taubenhaus) liegt am Rande eines Golfplatzes auf einer ehem. Farm in einem kleinen Wohngebiet. Die Wohnung ist sehr komfortabel eingerichtet, die Vermieter sind wirklich sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Es gab einen Begrüßungskorb mit Lebensmitteln. Das war sehr hilfreich, weil wir am Sonntag angereist sind. Desweiteren empfing uns Elaine und Robert mit einem Kaffee und einem Whisky ;-)

Die Wohnung selbst verfügt über alles, was man bracht und ist nach engl. Maßstäben sehr groß, aber auch nach dt. dafürhalten sehr geräumig. Der Garten ist ein Traum. Man kann im Garten oder vor dem Haus sitzen, man kann auf den naheliegenden Golfplatz spazieren oder einfach (1 Meile) ins Dort laufen um mit den netten Schotten (das sind die wirklich) zu reden oder im Pub was zu trinken. Der Golfclub (ca 5 Min) empfängt von 10-20 Uhr auch zum Ale und zum Essen (engl. Hausmannskost)

Von hier aus erreicht man auch recht schnell alle wichtigen Ziele in Schottland. Perth, Scoon Palace, St. Andrews, Secret Buncer (Atombuncer ca 5 Meilen) etc. oder man genießt einfach diese Ruhe, die Schönheit der Natur. Wir waren wirklich begeistert. Es war nur zu kurz. Wir kommen wieder!!!

P.S. Internet ist sehr schnell und wer dt. Fernsehen will, kann dies auch auf dem modernen Fernseher via Internet haben.

Thank You Elaine and Robert
