The Old Manse of Bourtie

The OId Manse of Bourtie is remarkable and should be a Scottish national treasure...The place is such an accurate step back in time.

Marion Youngblood and Kiji own and live in the Victorian home which they have preserved. They heat with the multiple fireplaces, cook on a wood stove which also heats water in pipes which lead to both the upstairs and downstairs bathrooms.

The staircases, the stone walls, the windows, the floors, the doors are all authentic and very beautiful.  Read More
