Since the 1970's I have been going to Craig-y-Mor as often as possibe. My husband's family owns it now and we try to get there for a vacation from the states whenever we can. My husband's brothers and sisters go more often, being in the UK. It is a magical place. The first time I went, there were baby sheep jumping around out front.
