Places to stay: Auckinleck house adventures

A gang of us headed up to Scotland to play at being lords and ladies of the manor for a week, staying at the stunning Auchinleck House, part of the Landmark Trust collection of properties. There was a lot of beach wandering, fireside reading and cuddling of Betty the dog involved and I took some nice snaps to share with you lot.

Fancy a stint in your own very big house in the country? The Landmark Trust offers getaways in 200 unique properties in Europe, including towers, temples and even a private island. It’s not too painful on the pocket either – for a palty £50 each, thirteen of us got to spend the week pretending to be in Downton Abbey.

Some of these photos are by the uber wonderful Adam Millbank.
