view of the estuary


The Old Manse is approached from the main Road – West End – via a tarmacked drive. The name of the house is clearly visible on the gate post on the main road, and again on the gate post to the parking area. There is no lighting on the bottom drive.


There is a gravelled parking area in front of the house with ample parking , with a level walk leading to the stepped path to the front door.


The Old Manse is situated well back from the main road and it is not brightly lit. The car parking area has a security light and the front door to the house is lit during the evening. We recommend that guests bring a torch or flashlight if they intend to go for an evening stroll along the estuary .
