2 miles from Samye Ling Buddhist centre. Secluded s/c farmhouse, sleeps 7-8 fully self-contained, single room rental also poss.
No tv but DVD's&wifi, big library w' open fire. Bright, cosy, unique & arty, child-friendly. Veggie/vegan breakfast £5 extra each :)
The centrally heated farmhouse has been lovingly refurbished in an earth-friendly way, with many unique features inside, from stained glass to organic woodwork, original artworks and its own tiny gallery, and hand-printed prayerflags.
Upstairs is the bathroom and two large bedrooms, each with a double and single bed in them. Both face West, towards the river Esk which winds through the valley, and the Loupin Stanes. This is one of many prehistoric sites in the area, including the Girdle Stanes, another ancient stone circle twenty minutes further downstream.
One double bedroom, Wailele (Hawaiian for waterfall, as it’s nearest the burn) has a video player with wide selection of videos, the other, the Loupin room (as it’s nearest the Stanes), is painted with a landscape and has a small but useable antique French woodburner in it.
Half-way up the stairs, there is the Swallow room. Painted with rich blue earth-pigment, this little single under the eaves has a skylight to the stars and and its own ‘secret room’ entered through a giant mousehole!
Downstairs is the sitting room, with an open fireplace. This holds an extensive library, specialising in books of a spiritual and esoteric nature (particularly Tibetan Buddhism). There is also a music system, DVD player and wide selection of DVDs, broadband access and pedal organ.
The under-floor heated kitchen, with a table to seat seven (just!), as well as all cooking and washing facilities, has a door leading to the front garden and meadow.
I and my curios cat, Tashi live in the back of the house; the two interconnecting doors to the holiday-let side are kept shut and there are no ‘shared areas’; the front door, and all the living areas mentioned, are exclusively for your use.
Rennaldburn is child-friendly, with cot, high chair and child safety gates available if required, as well as a big trampoline out back by the waterfall and table-tennis table with strictly improper proportions by a pond with newts in it.
Zugang für Gäste
All guests can access all of Rennaldburn's grounds, including our beautiful waterfall and woodland. This being Scotland, you're also free to roam further afield up the burn (stream in scottish; what gives Rennaldburn its name) and through the sheep pastures ~ always being aware of keeping dogs under control.
If you book the whole holiday let side you can access all areas on that side. If you just book a room, you still have access to all communal areas including the fully-equipped kitchen and library/sitting room with open fire ~ but if someone else books for the same nights as you you'll be sharing these communal areas with them, including the bathroom.
If you happen to book a space on 'my side' (I'll make it clear which side you're on when you book), you'll be sharing a kitchen and bathroom with me.

I live here and work from home (my website's: so am nearly always around to help you with anything if needed. I've been writing and illustrating a book about the ancient oracle known as the I Ching, Book of Changes or Zhouyi for many years now, and am happy to do a free divination with you during your stay if you're interested. This can either answer a question about something you have, or can simply give you open guidance.
Please don't smoke in the house...and if you do smoke outside, please close the doors & windows so the fumes don't all blow straight back in!
Rennaldburn is pet friendly, as long as any canine visitors don’t chase Tash the cat or surrounding sheep. (Since he lives here we’re not suitable for those with a cat allergy).
Other than this, my expectations for guests to do as you would be done by have always been fulfilled ~ I put a lot of love into making this a uniquely welcoming, creative, healing and harmonious space and enjoy my guests appreciation of that! My intent is for your stay here to be fantastic and memorable, and I've met many wonderful folk passing through.
