Ashkirk, Borders

Review of Ashkirk by John on December 22nd, 2010
The Smiddy. Made welcome when first moved to the area by a genuine landlord. However, this morning we had the most horrid experiance with the partner of the landlord of the smiddy. Worst night of the winter, -17 and had to leave the car overnight on the car park to be greeted by an angry, aggressive lady who thought nothing about the four year old child present whilst she berated us for the use of their car park as our car was stuck in snow and ice and could not make it up the track home. Zero community spirit and a very nasty piece of work in my opinion. We will not step foot in the place again.
