For many, December sounds like a noisy avalanche of snow filled with stress from the ups and downs of holidays, gift shopping, meal preparations, visits to family and friends, and many more. For others, December evokes memories, tranquillity, peace, intimacy.
In order to achieve this, they yearn to be in a magical place that takes them away from worldly noise and brings them closer to the essence of life: happiness. House of Mark is the ideal place to find the intimacy of the soul. There you will be sheltered with the cosy blanket of tranquillity, the hot chocolate of peace and a friendly family warmth. Come and visit us.
It’s the most wonderful time of year. Scotland boasts many attractions that make it a fantastic country to celebrate the festive season.
Take lovely scenic walks…cosy up in front of an open fire and admire the wonderful winter views…
The fact that Scotland’s weather is slightly more unpredictable means that tourists also have that added chance of a white Christmas – which is surely the thing that most people in the world aspire to experience!
Whatever the time of year there is always something interesting to see around House of Mark. As I sit here working away on my computer two magnificent stags are grazing less than 300 yards from the window. Looking so regal – one can understand why these handsome ‘boys’ are known as the ‘Monarch of the Glen’! (as painted by Sir Edwin Lanseer).
As I move into the dining room just outside the window three red squirrels nibble away at the peanuts from the bird feeder http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rmI0205JvGo, occasionally scampering after each other playfully on the lawn. The Great Spotted Woodpecker ignoring them completely as he pecks away at another feeder. Most guests have also enjoyed watching these antics during breakfast time.
Distractions from my work – yes, but I think I am a very lucky person, don’t you?
