Beware the Buchan Braes, it will suck you in. From the greetings on arrival to the comfortable rooms and the quality of food and friendly staff, this hotel is one of the best we have visited. Only small detail is that heating in bathroom in our particular room could be better due to each having a window (unusual in hotel... More

I visited the Buchan Braes to celebrate my husbands Granda's 80th Birthday. There was about 20 of us in all.

Normally with bigger tables and more people... More

Have been to the Buchanan Braes on many occasions. The menu choice is amazing and the food has never disappointed. Have also taken bus loads of my learning difficulties and disabled friends there. The staff could not have done any more for us. I would highly recommend anyone to go there.

An ex-army officers mess, sympathetically converted into a smart comfortable hotel. Rooms are nicely decorated and well equipped, with comfortable beds. Food is a cut above average and choice of dining in spacious and attractive lounge bar or in the slightly more formal restaurant. Heavily used by business people in the week, with the nearby power station, gas plants and... More
