Nisbet Old Schoolhouse

The Schoolhouse is a 3-Star appointed cottage, renovated to suit the needs of a tranquil country holiday, or a peaceful fishing trip with friends. 

We are proud to accommodate the needs of fishermen, and have spacious fridges for local catches and ample room for equipment. 

Families can enjoy this self-catering country-retreat and spending their days walking along blissful river walks or round the ever-popular Harestanes Visitor's Centre.
