This idyllic spot could be straight from an Agatha Christie novel! Indeed it has an interesting past and has played its part in the history of Scotland as the location for a meeting between Churchill and General Eisenhower in World War II. It also featured in John Buchan’s 39 Steps – a favourite of mine. Set on its own bay and only a short distance from the pretty village of Portpatrick, this beautiful mansion is stunning and the food award-winning.
