See The Forest For The Trees
St Andrews is sitting in between Edinburgh and the Highlands on the east coast of Scotland. Although this small mediaeval ('medieval' spelled by St Andrews Uni's school of mediaeval history) town has became a rather international place where you can hardly hear Scottish accent; the 8 centuries old cathedral, the 8 centuries old castle, the 6 centuries old university, the 6 centuries old Old Course and the three old Scottish Pines in Ailim Houses Garden all knows it has Scotland imprinted in its sprit.
When we started the development of the property, we wanted to give it a sprit that honours the history of this very town. The Scottish Pines stands high above others in the front garden like guardians.
'AILIM' means Scottish Pine in Celtic. It was used as torches in the past to chase away the darkness and spread the light. In the old days, people believed Scottish Pines taught to link the past and the future to present, and to seek out the truth of the surroundings. They witnessed the past of this land and will see the future of it.
So we named the house 'Ailim House', in the hope it would give us guidance and strength on our journey. Furthermore, the tall standing giants would remind us to 'see the forest for the trees', it should be every individual guest's interest that we look after.
