The Pend

I stayed here at the end of my sixth day on my Land’s End to John O’Groats ride in June 2014, from Moffat to Dunkeld.

The building is full of character.  My room was right in the roof and the staircase wound its way up through the middle of the house giving a real impression of age, with the stairs cambering over.  Not I hasten to add dilapidated.  The whole was very nicely decorated and clean throughout.  Being in the roof my room had all the associated character features with sloping ceilings etc. but was not restricted for headroom. Being up high it also had a very good view.  The room was not en-suite but had a sink, tv and tea and coffee making facilities.

Breakfast was a help yourself to cereals, fruit and juice with a choice of cooked breakfasts to follow.  Needing to get to Inverness via the Cairngorms by the end of the day I loaded up on a Full Scottish breakfast which included my first sampling of haggis.  Excellent.

My bike was secured in the garage overnight, from where the photo of the rear of the property is taken.  My room was the one in the middle of the roof.
