The Piries, Ellon, Aberdeenshire

Fantastic week for my husband’s “50th! “ Kim always goes the extra mile and nothing seems to be too much trouble.  House is just amazing.  Ace Adventures just up the road was a good way to spend a Saturday white water rafting and cliff jumping!!!  We will deffo be back.  Logie Steading was lovely for breakfast, lunch & tea with great shops to browse at.  Brodie Countryfayre is always a great visit too.
