“Our time at Cranaleith was truly delightful. We were so warmly welcomed, treated with such care and nurturance. The food was divine and the atmosphere simple and elegant.”

“We’re in the planning season, and, because we had such a stellar experience at Cranaleith last year, we would like to hold our 2016 board retreat at your place again. The environment, meeting facilities, staff, food, and so on were exemplary in every way, which made our activities all the more enjoyable.”
