We booked three rooms for our team of six for the "Golden Spurtle" World Porridge Chamionship. The proprietors, Lindsay and Allison, provided us the perfect base for our important mission of bringing the Golden Spurtle to Portland, Oregon. That's right, we won! It was a crazy adventure and the Fairwinds was an incredible support to us. They let us ship a pile of heavy boxes in advance, they let us use their wonderful kitchen for practicing and cheered us on the whole way through. Everything about the place was perfect. Nice and sometimes playful hosts, large, spacious rooms with all the amenities (including fancy soaps and the like, ewww), free wifi and a computer, steamy hot water, gorgeous view, privacy, the works. Everything in the place was immaculate. You wouldn't find cleaner bathrooms in Buckingham Palace, swear. The food was probably the best we had the whole time in Scotland. The menu basically consisting of anything you wanted, from traditional stuff like haggis and beans to continental stuff like fresh fruit, juice, eggs anyway you want, The best part fo breakfast: strong french press coffee. Thank God! If you're staying in Speyside or in the area, you'd be wise to check out Fairwinds. Great place. We're heading back there next year again for the competition. Lindsay, Allison, thank you very much for the experience. Your friends at BRM.
